"Just Buy-Em..They're worth it."
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
These are the best sticks I have ever played with. hands down. I love the Zildjian dipped sticks as well but they always seemed so lite. These sticks are a good bit heavier than wood sticks, hit with authority and respond very very well for a heavy stick. drum rolls around the kit after you get used to these sound awsome. And if you do fling one and grab a wooden stick, watch how fast you toss that one to find the ahead or look in that bag for another one. Though I haven't lost a stick yet while playing with them I did buy 2 pair. You would spend a lot more money for wooden sticks before theses where out.

Sound?..From Sticks?..The sound comes from the drums..However, being these are a lot heavier than typical wood sticks of the same size..they are louder..A good thing if you play hard like I do..

Great for Rock..Lars Ulrich version look good. I play 3 to 4 nights a week anywhere from 2 to 5 hours at a time. Anti Vibration a big plus reducing hand fatigue. The sticks, though unlike many others, are very very well balanced (another plus to reduce hand fatigue). The expense..I paid $24.95 for the pair. Considering I would have went through twice that amount in wooden sticks (I break them often) the value is great. I have had these for almost 10 months and still going strong..Don't fling them either..highly recommend the optional stick wrap..great grip thick rubber tape. The less expensive cover(s) will ocassionally need replacing but read more the cost $4 or $5 a pair..not bad.

No doubts here..they are built to last..and still feel as fresh today as when I bought them 10 months ago.

Definately a great value..consider that you would pay $8 to $10 for a decent pair of wooden sticks..they break, you buy more. In 10 months I would have gone through at least 4 or 5 pair buy now..you do the math. I paid $24.95 for each pair (I have 2 pairs in case I fling one),(Haven't flung one yet though) an additional $7 for the wraps. Good quality rubber tape like grip stuff. The way it adds up I get great sticks for less money.. When I do need to replace the covers which are quite durable they cost about $6 or $7 dollars.
