CCM RBZ stage 2

Anybody have this stick? I'm looking into buying it as my Reebok A.I 9 just snapped on me. It's either I buy this one or I wait until 9.13.13 for the Apx 2 to come out. I'm just looking for some reviews or help on buying this stick.

I've been using one for a month and I've shot around with the APX2. What do you want to know?


Sticks are completely personal preference and rely heavily on feel. What someone else likes or dislikes shouldn't play a huge part in finding a good stick for you.

I have the RBZ and when you read reviews you'll find the same thing said about the variable flex. It took me about a month to get used to the stick. It was like a guitar, if I moved my bottom hand down slightly I thought the stick was a POS. If I moved my hand up a little I was using the stick I paid for. Once I got used to it I love it, haven't had any issues with durability, my wrist shot is good, the puck comes off good but it does take time to adjust to. And I was using the same curve I've been using for years, I just couldn't get the flex down.

I picked up a senior 85 flex hossa (right) yesterday and the flex is a little tricky to get used too.

I'll have mine in a few days. I'll give an initial review on my next skate.
