The Sensation of the World Cup of Hockey Now in Stores
Free Pair of Limited Edition Vector Gloves with Purchase
Montreal, Quebec, November 15th 2004 - The CCM one-piece stick (OPS) that scored the game-winning goals for Team Canada in the semi-finals and finals of The 2004 World Cup of Hockey (WCH) has finally hit the street. CCM©'s new Vector 130 OPS, which WCH 2004 tourney MVP Vincent Lecavalier and finals game-winning goal scorer Shane Doan switched to with smashing results during the tournament, is now available at hockey shops and sporting goods stores across North America.
The Vector 130 re-defines the term ultra-lightweight, weighing in at 15% less than traditional OPS. CCM© built the CCM Vector™ 130 with a stiffer, straighter and thinner aerospace grade graphite to create a powerhouse OPS that is easy to maneuver. And by powerhouse, we mean best-in-class durability due to CCM©'s patented Impact Layer Technology™ in the shaft and new fiber-reinforced solid foam core blade.
OPS are ultimately judged on performance, and the CCM Vector 130 delivers. A longer 24" taper makes it easier for shooters to load and fire, and a stiffness optimized blade results in optimum velocity on shots. The CCM Vector 130 blade has also been created with an enlarged "sweetspot", allowing for the performance of a composite blade without sacrificing the responsive feel that players need.
In celebration of the launch of the Vector 130 OPS, CCM is giving away a free pair of limited edition Vector hockey gloves to consumers with the purchase of a Vector 130, 120 or 110 stick from November 15th through December 31st. To participate, consumers who purchase a stick have to fill out the coupon available at participating retailers or at ccmsports.com and send it along with an original proof of purchase to CCM.
