One of the biggest golf companies in the world                                                        

is best known for their drivers and clubs, but the

golf mega-giant is looking to get involved with

Canada’s most popular sport hockey.

 

Reebok Hockey and CCM, two of the top hockey equipment suppliers in the world,

are teaming with TaylorMade to refine the

TaylorMade’s top researchers are working

on creating a completely hollow shaft or

more flex when shooting. It would also

give players quicker wind up times and

faster shots.
