Lots of great things to say here. Besides being very well balanced, consistent, and great in the hands, they are also the most durable and natural feeling sticks on the market.

When I go to the store I find myself comparing sticks from different brands to find the pair(s) I like. Not so much with Pro Mark as they are very consistent from pair to pair. A set can last me up to 6 months or more.

The essence of oak is very dense. Your rides will clang with authority and your crashes will ring for days. They are loud sticks. However you can still get delicate response for snare rolls and soft passages. It's how you use your hands.

I only have one reservation : and I must throw a CAUTION flag out - be very careful with practicing often with these sticks. After some medical attention, partly due to the dense nature of these sticks, I have developed SEVERE Carpal and Ulnar tunnel in both hands/wrists. It is due to the shock being more severe with such a dense wood. Had I been using hickory (a much lighter wood), the shock would not have been as extreme. Now I must take Ibuprofen before and after shows, and ice my arms so they do not flare up. I wear wrist braces at night. This is not purely the sticks' fault. I would practice for 3 hours or more without a break and without proper warm-ups. I sliced up my ligaments pretty bad and caused some real agitation on my nerves.

If you plan to play a lot with these, save them for the gig. Use hickory or budget-friendly 2nds to practice with. As long as they roll on a table, they'll be fine.

I now use Zildjian Anti-vibes for my CTS. It's all I can use at this point, with the occasional light hickory 5A with electrical tape wrapped around it (for shock absorption).

If I could do it all over again I'd practice with hickory but I'd use Shira Kashi all day long if my arms weren't in such bad shape. They are great sticks but unfortunately for me the oak is too dense for my arms to handle. I do use proper stick technique. They will tear you up!

Fantastic sticks - but save them for the gig.

After 20 years of using Promark hickory sticks I decided to switch to Japanese oak in my normal size (5A nylon) to see if they would last longer than hickory. I really wanted to like these oak sticks. They feel great in my hands and I like the slightly heavier weight for rim shots. They play really nicely and don't get nicked up by cymbals like other woods, that much is true. However, after about 1 hour at practice with my band I noticed that the nylon tip had come off of one of my new sticks. I had been rotating between four pairs to break them in evenly, so none of the sticks had much visible wear. I've shredded through hundreds of Promarks in my lifetime and the nylon tips never come off (can't say the same for Vic Firth). I figured it was a fluke and was still feeling pretty good about the oak sticks after day one. I then used the same eight sticks at a show that weekend and broke two more sticks. One snapped off just below the tip and the other split right through the middle on an angle that I rarely see. That's 3 broken sticks after about 2 hours playing time total, or an average of 30 minutes playing time per stick since I was rotating four pairs. I've never had Promark's hickory sticks go that fast. I still love Promark and will always use their sticks because they are the most consistent and well-balanced on the market. I wouldn't buy into the idea that oak will last longer than hickory though. I'm most likely going back to hickory, but I'll use the remaining oak sticks because I do like the feel.

      Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

      I have always preferred the nylon tip drum sticks due to their exceptional sound, particularly with cymbals. I recently switched from an acoustic kit to an electronic kit after using an acoustic for 33 years.

      The nylon tips are even better with the electronic kit than the acoustic kit. I like the 5A size due to their multi-functionality. I highly recommend the purchase of these drum sticks.

      They are somewhat more expensive than other sticks, but I believe in the "old adage" that one gets what they pay for. These sticks last much longer than others.

          Oak does not Splinter like other Woods like Hickory.
          I love the feel of these promark sticks and striking symbols with them sounds much better than the softer Woods.
          The value is much better for the sticks, because they last a lot longer.
          They will Dent instead of Splinter. If anything - the sawdust issue with hickory sticks won't be a problem.

            I've been using these sticks for awhile and they are very durable and last a long time! The only reason im giving it 4 stars is that they sent me an oddball pair, but after a couple emails they sent me a new paur so shout out to the good customer service!

                Best sticks i have ever used. Just wish they made a 5A in the same length as the 7A.

                    These drumsticks are great. They get a higher tone out of my snare which I like. They sound great on all of my cymbals. Only con I've found so far is that they seem to bend when you hit a drum or cymbal hard. You can really feel all of the vibrations in your hand from the drumsticks. Overall they are really good. They sound really good.
