OK to clear up some confusion here... Managed a hockey shop for a few years after college...

Reebok or RBK hockey is owned by Adidas. Which is why NCAA Teams like Michigan and Notre Dame who are Adidas schools use Reebok and CCM equipment. When Reebok wanted to get into the hockey business they needed a hockey company to buy because why start from nothing when you can just buy a current company who already has all you need. Thats what Reebok did, They bought guess who??? Thats right CCM...

Reebok and CCM equiment all come from the same place. Its designed by the same people in R and D and They are both owned by Adidas. Reebok put most of its time and effort into the Reebok line and it has neglected the CCM line. I believe this is simply a effort to try and gain some market share for the new CCM stick line. The hockey players out there know that Bauer, Easton, and Warrior dominate the stick market with Reebok and CCM not as huge. I believe last I saw Easton and Bauer alone had over 50% market share in the NHL and at retail. I also know its a horrible kept secret that Reebok hockey along with CCM hockey are for sale by Adidas. Just like Nike, they got in and realized they were not gonna have the sucess they thought.


So yes Adidas is just using a Huge asset in TM to help try and boost hype in another area of business. Very Cool Idea. Most hockey players are huge golfers so I can see that. But what happens when RBK Hockey is Dumped...


Adidas has TMAG, Reebok, CCM, and a ski company, cant remember which one...

Adidas does own TMAG, Reebok, CCM, newly acquired Adams Golf and USED to own a ski company, Solomon. they sold Solomon a few years ago.

hockey sticks break way too often as it is. how the heck do they expect a 'hollow' blade to hold up?

I would have to agree. As a proud owner of many snapped blade one piece sticks with the "Foam core" blade, I cant believe a hollow blade can hold up. Easton used a heavy foam core in the SE16, and had blade breaking issues, although it was one of the nicest feeling sticks I've ever used.

Now I'm a Easton ST guy. Try to break it.

[size="5"]*******************NEWS FLASH*****************
[/size][size="4"]This is just in, Taylor Made announced that they will be releasing
a newer model in a month. Followed by several even newer models
two weeks later. They also wanted to squash any speculation that
there is a Version 2 out there currently. It is not a more fade bias
hockey stick and there is no difference in the curve of the blade. If
you are looking to get an NHL issued RBZ stick, they can be identified
by the serial number on the blade. They all start with TNHL and end
with "you got hosed." Also, please look out for all current staff players
to be wearing a new helmet that has "10 Mph" on tha back. :cheesy:

**Sorry couldn't resist**[/size]

That annual February 3rd release date TaylorMade has used the last 5 years really confuses people?
