CCM Super Tacks Senior Ice Hockey Skates Review

CCM Super Tacks Senior Ice Hockey Skates Review

 

I am glad that CCM brought back the Super Tacks skates but these are not the ones that your dad or granddad wore. The latest version of the Tacks skates by CCM are as new age as it gets. They have created a new 1 piece construction that features MonoFrame 360 Technology. Basically this means that it has an anatomical heel lock, meaning keeping your heel in places allows for more explosive skating. It also has a TotalDri liner for better moisture wicking, a felt tongue with lace bite protection, abrasion guards and one of the toughest achilles guards I’ve ever seen on a skate.

I felt like the Super Tacks were quite a departure from the previous Ultra Tacks. I thought that the Ultra Tacks were pretty good skates. They were rock solid, stiff and rugged. But the Super Tacks are somewhat the same but a more sleek improvement and then you add the one piece construction. That must mean more/better energy transfer and less seams to break, hopefully meaning that the skates will last longer for you!

I’ll admit that even after the heat molding of the skates, it still took me a bit of time to get used to them. At first, I found them extremely stiff and weird to skate in at first. The fit is narrow and it was squeezing on my forefoot. But once my feet got used to them, I quite liked the skates.

The Super Tacks are great on the ice once I got used to them. Because they are so stiff and light, I felt like I had a bit more to my skating. Out on the ice, they are great. As usual, once I started to play and not think about them on my feet, that means that I didn’t have any problems with the skates any more.

The CCM Super Tacks Senior Ice Hockey Skates are the next step in the evolution of CCM’s skates. The one piece skate took some time to get used to. It is rigid, stiff, and built to last. Plus I think think they look pretty nice with the white SB holder and the black SB steel. If you are looking for the latest in technology, look no further. With a price tag of $899.99 USD, you should expect a high end skate and that is exactly what you get.

Hockey Gear Review recommends the CCM Super Tacks Senior Ice Hockey Skates to all mid to high level hockey players.
