CCM Tacks AS-V Pro Stick family
The CCM Tacks AS-V stick line-up has landed.
The new king of power in CCM’s stick line-up has been crowned and now you're weighing up which version you should arm yourself with, and that's where we come in to help.
The CCM AS-V line has 3 levels to choose from – starting at the AS-570 and as you level up all the way to AS-V Pro you benefit from an added piece of technology to enhance your game.
Got that? Good. Let's check out the differences as we power up to AS-V Pro.
The AS-570 is CCM's entry into the new stick line, in short, it's the most basic version of the stick and as we Level Up we add a whole host of extra features and performance.
For players looking for that authentic Tacks look and feel, but at a lower price point then the AS-570 is perfect for you.
This is a stripped back version of the stick, built to deliver the basic DNA of the power and feel that the Tacks stick series is renowned for.
A few grams heavier than the other sticks in the line-up, but the AS-570 level still provides power characteristics thanks to its mid kickpoint construction that is built with a soft mid-section to maximise the amount of energy that can be loaded, before being released into your shot.

Jump up another level and you start to see some of the more advanced technologies CCM have to offer on the Tacks Stick.
The AS-V stick features Sigmatex ST carbon weave for a lighter and more durable stick than the AS-570.
Another upgrade the AS-V boasts is the use of Skeleton manufacturing technology in the shaft and taper. This will provide better reliability and durability in this crucial area of the stick. This will allow for better consistency and quicker shots, no matter where you are on the ice.

While a fair few CCM contracted teams will use the AS-V edition on the ice, the AS-V Pro is the most advanced Elite version of the Tacks Stick line-up when it comes to technologies, and will be used by many Elite pro players.
The Tacks AS-V Pro stick uses a completely a modern redesign of a powerful mid kickpoint, with a completely new shaft geometry allowing for a comfortable grip, easy loading, and increased wrist shot power.
The new ‘V’ shaft geometry has been designed to deliver the most harnessed locked in feel and in turn the most powerful possible loading area. This new shaft geometry allows for an easier and consistent loading of the stick to help increase wrist shot power. It’s shape transition along the shaft ensures maximum comfort and grip.
The combination of CCM's new Sigma STp carbon weave with Nanolite Carbon Layering creates the best-balanced tacks stick ever made, while remaining extremely durable.
