Anyone who has laced up hockey skates or even seen a hockey game knows that a game is five on five with a goalie on each side. The players use hockey sticks to whack around a puck at speeds of over one hundred miles per hour. when the puck is dropped to start a play the players whizz around the ice t checking, passing shooting and taking their shifts while a puck never takes a break. To anyone who has never seen a hockey puck, it is a little round rubber cylinder flying all over the ice while other sports use balls hockey is played with a puck. A hockey puck is made of more than just seen by the naked eye, it is made by vulcanized rubber which is a heavy duty rubber that tends to break less often than normal.

The Superfast is made with a tad thicker blade than the other sticks in the RBZ series making it the most durable and not letting the trampoline effect loosen up and be non existent in its blade. The RBZ series has the lowest swing weight allowing you to get a faster shot. Dynamic Strain Profile (DSP) The change in magnitudes of the 5 strain gauges during flexion along the X direction of
