I bought these sticks for a great deal with a MF promo code. I like the way they feel in my hand. to me, they are a bit more beefy than other brands in the same size. I have already split a stick right down the middle after a week and I'm not sure if this was a flawed stick. I'm not a heavy player so only time will tell if these sticks pay for themselves. With the "free shipping" offered by MF, I would first order one pack to see how you like them.

Like a few others in the reviews, my pack had terribly uneven sticks. The weights were TOTALLY off for all of them. I can't recall if the pairs themselves were even, but throwing them in my stick holder, it'll take me 10 tries to find 2 sticks that are remotely close to each other. This may be a bad batch, but man these are out right unusable for me.

      Comments about Vater Hickory Drum Stick Pre-pack:

      I have been playing for 10 years now and I have used these sticks for most of that time. I always get the 5a wood. they last for ever and they come in a bundle so you break a stick or chip a bead there are more waiting for you. i stocked up on these sticks a while ago probably 3 years ago because i like to buy in bulk. which wasn't a bad idea except i didn't think about that as the sticks get older they don't have as much initial integrity because it loses some moisture. Any ways they used to come with six pairs now they only come with what looks like four. that is why i only gave four stars. especially because i don't think they price is much cheaper.

        Comments about Vater Hickory Drum Stick Pre-pack:

        I have used these sticks for around 2 years and I love the feel and durability. I would say these are some of the best 5A sticks you can get for the price. I like that you can find very great deals on them when you buy like 4 pairs. I personally usually use these sticks for both small gigs and all practicing. Sticks really are a opinion thing when it comes to sound so I would recommend buying 1 pair and trying them out. Overall, it's a great stick.

              well my Vater's have hung out very well as an aggresive drummer. If you are losing sticks to damage reconfigure your cymbals a bit. Or just get used to the fact that sticks are the cost of doing business.

                Comments about Vater Hickory Drum Stick Pre-pack:

                I have been using vater sticks, specifically this pack for years. Overall the experience has been positive. They come at a great price and most commonly hold up for many hours. But I do seem to find that with every other pack there are atleast two pairs that are either different timbre or just dead sticks that break after a few rimshots or minimal use. I have had one nightmare experience where I was playing a gig and pulled out a fresh pair right from the sleeve and within 12 measures it fractures from the taper to the tip leaving me a spear. I go to grab another pair only to have it happen again moments later. It was embarassing to say the least but that was the only time anything like that has occurred.
