Can the Ribcor Trigger 3D PMT Really Be an Improvement Over the Trigger 2 PMT?

The CCM Ribcor Trigger2 PMT stick is a powerful piece of lumber that allows players to grip, rip and snipe in a ridiculous rate (seriously, I’m not kidding — check the video out below). Bardown, between the legs or in the seven-hole has never come easier. The 2017 powerhouse twig allowed you to score at a completely different level. Can that level be raised with the Ribcor Trigger 3D PMT stick?

Before we dive into the Ribcor Trigger 3D PMT, let’s take another look at the Trigger2 PMT from one year ago and see what made that release so special.

As you can see, the revolutionary technology within the Trigger2 allows you to fire shots without worry of the stick suffering severe breakage in a short period of time. Sigmatex technology is found throughout the stick, which is an exclusive spread tow fabric developed by leading composite manufacturers. This process makes the stick very lightweight, but extremely powerful, thanks in large part to its high-tension weave process. Sigmatex allows you to have excellent puck feel and responsive loading of shots.

So many of these features have been mirrored into the Trigger 3D PMT stick; the Ascent Blade 3 is vital to the core of the Trigger’s build, while PopMatrix technology makes a return (more on that in a minute). And that optimized low kick point that transfers your energy from shaft to blade better than any other? Yea, that’s there too.

So, what’s the difference between last year’s model and this year’s?

Simply put, the 3D PMT has been tightened up and improved upon everything that made the Trigger2 excellent. However, there is one addition that is more than worth mentioning.

The newly added X-Flow technology starts in the molding process of the stick’s build. Any excess resin or voids have been removed during molding. The difference is a tightly compacted twig that is even more lightweight than before, while the more compact fibers means a stronger interior. Your stick will last longer, and at the end of the day, nobody wants to be that guy that had his stick snap on a game-ending opportunity.

Now, onto that PopMatrix. A process that has been tried and true with CCM, PopMatrix works just like so many hockey players do — maintaining high tension on the rink to perform the best. The performance fibers within the Ribcor 3D PMT stick are in constant tension with each other, with an outer layer protecting them from snapping. This creates a spring-like shot when loading from the shaft to the blade, allowing players to rocket shots from anywhere on the ice.

In today’s game, especially at the higher levels, quickness is the difference. That’s why when you pull the Trigger with CCM’s latest stick model, you’ll notice a rocket jump off your stick, whether snapping, wristing or slapping. This is thanks in large part to a softer taper, which creates an optimal low kick and vertical flex. You’ll also find an enhanced flex zone within the upper shaft, which feels more natural when you’re loading for the shot, allowing you to shoot with deadly accuracy and deceptive speed.

And for you intermediate players, CCM has added a feature you’ve been asking for. Thanks to numerous conversations with elite women’s hockey players, as well as a slew of youth hockey players, CCM has added rounded corners and concave sides to the intermediate stick, helping you with stick and puck control, as well as overall comfort holding the stick. They realize there is a jump between intermediate- and senior-level sticks, so they’ve made adjustments to help you reach new heights in your game play.

Looking at the specs, it’s a very similar stick to the Trigger2, but CCM has advanced every facet of the stick to make it lighter and to add more power to your shots. When CCM uses the slogan, “Create New Goals,” there’s a reason for it. The Ribcor Trigger 3D PMT stick is your guide to finding new ways to put pucks in the net.
