        Comments about Ahead Metal Fuse Long Taper Sticks (Pair):

        I really like the balance of these. The stick does most of the work for you. For long nights they keep your wrists feeling good and healthy (at least in my opinion). They are fairly big but light. I've had a pair I've used on and off for roughly for a year so they are very durable. I don't hit the shoulder alot so its just now time to get new sleeves. If volume is an issue I wouldn't recommend them cause they are pretty loud sticks.

          Comments about Ahead Metal Fuse Long Taper Sticks (Pair):

          I have been drumming for about 5 years now and I've always used wooden sticks, so naturally it's a big switch from wood to aluminum; however my experience with these sticks was not good. I am a heavy hitter and wanted something that would last longer than the usual sticks I get (Promark Japanese White Oak) which usually last about a month. I had some points to redeem on the website so I thought "why not try something new?" The sticks were very sturdy and felt great in hand, but they were very heavy (which was expected considering they're aluminum) and way longer than any stick I've ever used (you may see this as a pro). The aluminum felt like it had a better grip than wood sticks, which was nice. During my first time playing with them I noticed that it is much harder to roll with them on anything other then the snare, so if you were hoping to roll on your high hat or rim, don't get these. I would definitely not suggest these to anyone who wants to make non traditional sounds on their drum set, because they can't do much outside of single stroke hits. The sticks lasted about a week before one of them gave up on me. The tip unscrewed while I was playing and punched a hole in my snare head. Again, I hit pretty hard, so I'm going to do some damage to the sticks pretty fast, but they did not last nearly as long as I thought they would. All in all I would not suggest these sticks.

          I would buy these over and over.

              These sticks are really good, they are light like 7a and 7b sticks. I have owned Ahead sticks before (Lars) and they did last almost a year. These sticks I feel are way better then my previous sticks and they seem to be built better.
