Bought 2 pair of these 15 years ago and they're still going strong. gone through many sheaths, and tips during that time. through metal, rock and jazz they havent done me wrong except that one time i left them at home and had to play with wooden sticks when i discovered an additional feature. i guess the aluminium ahs some sort of shock absorbing quality bc after that wooden stick gig the wrist forearm pain were off the charts. 5 stars all around
