What’s up guys? This is Derek from Total Hockey.
I’m here with Jeff Lovecchio today. He’s played a lot of pro hockey. Right now he’s with the
Kushiro Cranes in the Asian League. Today, we’re testing out the True A6.0 SBP
stick. What goalie you bring out for me to pepper
today Pals? His name’s Tyler Parks, you ever hear of him? Seriously? Don’t worry man, you got the new True stick. Alright. Jeff, you look pretty good using the stick.
What were your general thoughts on it? You brought me an 85 flex, which is a little
less than I usually use. I was a little worried, but I tell ya, the stick performed great. My one-timer came off hot. And obviously it didn’t break, so that’s gonna
be result of the SmartPly Technology. You’ll love this, like they have engineers
who just break sticks in a controlled environment in the lab. And they figure out which fiber
angles and construction works the best. So, literally, they tried pretty much everything
and found out which is gonna maximize performance and strength and came up with the SmartPly
Technology. Well, I’ll tell you, it definitely works,
because I took about a hundred one-timers today and the stick feels just as good on
the last one as it did on the first. Good. Good. Could that have been more perfect? I don’t
know. Wow. I actually really noticed that the stick had
a great balance from the toe up to the handle. A lot of sticks I pick up, they feel bottom
heavy. And that effects how I stick handle and shoot. This one seems very evenly balanced
so when you’re transferring your weight in your shot, you know it just makes it a lot
easier to come off. And able to angle the puck exactly where you want it to go. So, it’s a one-piece stick rather than being
molded, the blade to the shaft, everything is compression molded all the way down to
the end of the heel here. And then it goes right in to the blade, so you get that balanced
feel. How’d the stick feel with the different shots
you were taking and the different hand placements you were using on the stick? It really felt like I was able to get off
my in-tight shots off really quickly. There was no loading necessary for me to get it
in tight. And also, another feature I liked was that the one-timers – some sticks bow
out down low toward the blade when you’re taking a one-timer. Kind of makes the puck
be a little bit flimsy coming off your stick, but you know it just came off hot like I said
before. The one-timers were actually maybe the hardest I’ve ever had with a stick, so
I liked both of those features that I could take two different shots depending on the
situation in the game. A lot of stiffness in the lower part of the
shaft when you’re taking those one-timers and then a soft handle for when you’re taking
those wrist shots and quick snappers, quick release shots that you were doing with the
passes from me down low. Yeah, I loved it. I actually really like this
stick. Thanks for the assist by the way. Hey, any time. You got a lot today. So, I’m using the Xcore 9 stick which has
an Xcore blade for more of a wood-like feel. You remind me again what kind of blade you
got? BRT Blade! Is that inside bar? That was inside bar baby. (laughing) Pretty good stick actually. He’s getting angry. Oh, it’s in! It’s in there? Yeah. Oh, close up! Come on! You got to get a close up of that! So it seems like you really like the blade. Catching passes weren’t hard at all for me.
I accepted them really easily. And again, the pop coming off the blade when I’m shooting.
Snap shots, slap shots, it was coming off really really well. So, those braided ribs, there’s two of them.
There’s one that runs along the lower part, and then one that goes through the middle.
And what it does, is not only provide stiffness and durability so when you’re taking shots
there’s no torsion but it also gives you that pop that you were feeling. I call this one “Trickery” Oh my god! (laughing) You want to remind us what BRT stands for? Yeah sure Derek. Cut to camera 2. Braided Rib Technoloy (laughing) You can find the True A6.0 SBP stick at a
Total Hockey store near you or at TotalHockey.com. As always, like our video, subscribe to our
channels. And Jeff, Tyler, thanks guys for coming out today. Pals, next time, bring a smaller goalie. Or a bigger net right? We’re here in Montreal, home of CCM headquarters
and we’re checking out the CCM Super Tacks stick.

    Which stick out of these 5 would u recommend for me, Reckoner, 1x, 1s,1n or super tacks, I'm a center/lw who wants a stick that would give me accuracy so I can pick any corner and power on shots also with a little bit of quick release, I like to dangle if I can but just want a stick where I can pick my spot every time thanks
