    Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

    I have been playing the drums upwards of 30 years, with most of my time spent in the genre of rock/metal. I have tried various brands and sizes but let me tell you that Promark NAILED it with the 5A 550 Forward Balance stick. This is without a doubt the absolute best stick I have ever used! As a rock/metal drummer, I hit hard and heavy and this stick just emphasizes my playing style. Forget that finesse and soft feeling agility stuff...drop the hammer and power through!!!

        Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

        I bought two pairs of the new Promark Select Balance in the .535 diameter for a test drive. I got one rebound balance and one forward balance. I have been using Promark 7A wood tip sticks for many years now, I always found the 5As a little too thick and heavy and they slowed me down after playing a couple of songs. But on the other side, I always wished that the 7As were a little longer and a tiny bit thicker. Well, my wish has been granted. These new Select Balance in the .535 diameter are just a tiny bit thicker than the 7A .512, and also 5/8 of an inch longer. Perfect. The next question was if the forward and rebound balance thing was just a selling gimmick or if it really made a difference. Well. it absolutely does. I thought that I would prefer the rebound balance, but I found out that there was too much weight in the back for me, so I found myself having to do too much work. The forward balance on the other hand, gave me the perfect control, and also I can get a little more power and speed than the 7As, with the same feel and effort. Also, being a little bit thicker, I can loosen a little bit on my grip without having the stick flying away and letting me play more relaxed. After a couple of days of testing I ordered more pairs of the .535 forward balance. They will be my stick of choice from now on. Excellent sticks. Great job Promark. Try them, they really do what they say they do, which is not always true when companies come out with new things.

        Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

        I use to use ProMark sticks exclusively years ago . The 747 was my favorite . But the quality started to go down hill and it got harder and harder to find any straight sticks ! So I went with another brand . Then they came out with these and I've noticed that they are starting to make straight sticks again ! I like the balance and the way they feel in my hands .
        However I don't like buying sticks online because you can't roll them for straightness . You're at the mercy of the guy filling your order , all he does is grab a pair and drop them in your order bin . I always go for the lighter sticks , each pair is different in weight and density so it's important to pick them yourself . Sooo...I had to take what they sent me . And yes one of the sticks was warped !
        But for the most part when I've picked them myself at the music store I find that the majority of them are straight and of good quality .
        My advice...go to the store and roll them yourself . You'll be happier .

            I have used ProMark for years. This has a different feel. I thought a stick was a stick, but the balance is different and the response is different. I could tell by response my stick size was the same but it handles differently.

                These sticks are the first promarks i have ever gotten till now it was Vic firth or big pack of nameless sticks.
                I have received them just today and they are feeling better than my standard American classic 55a. these have a good punch and can be very sensitive too, in fact despite being a forward balance model these sticks have good rebound which i like. and for testing their durability i did couple of rim shots and the only marks on them were from the dust and dirt on my kit
                (i don't play that hard but still)
                I Love these sticks and look forward to drumming with them.

                    After 35 years I finally found the perfect stick. I have been playing 7As, but from now on I'll stick (pun not intended) to the 535 forard balance. A little longer (5/8 of an inch) and a tiny bit thicker, they make the perfect stick for me. One of those finds that make you really happy and excited and you can't wait to go play drums.
