The focus of the RIBCOR stick line was to have a stick that is easier to load and more efficient at generating power for your shot. They have a low-mid kick point, which helps to get a quick release on your shot. Despite having a slightly higher fiberglass content than the 24K, the RIBCOR 23K is still very well-balanced and is among the lightest sticks in this opening price point class.
Reebok uses a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber for this stick. The intermediate shaft uses a Contoured geometry with rounded corners for a better fit in smaller hands. The RIBCOR 23K has textured zones throughout the shaft for improved handling and is only available with a clear non-grip finish.
Although the RIBCOR 23K does not have the visible rib construction in the taper, it does still have easy to load technology. What does that mean? Well, during testing of the RIBCOR stick, Reebok noticed a unique stiffness profile caused by the fibers being in tension. They created that same stiffness profile in the RIBCOR 23K, making it "easy to load".
Just like the higher end RIBCOR sticks, the RIBCOR 23K intermediate also features the SSX blade design. This simply means that the blade goes from stiff in the heel to extra stiff at the toe. The stiffness of this blade helps with control and accuracy of your shot.
For an opening price point stick with a stiff blade and an easy to load shaft, the RIBCOR 23K from Reebok should be worth your consideration. Try one out.
