I bought these sticks for my son as a Christmas gift, he's a drummer by profession. He told me that he would be ordering these again because he was very pleased. The thing that impressed me the most was the help I received when ordering. The ones I originally wanted were backordered- so the salesgirl put me on hold to locate another salesperson who is a drummer,he recommended a different pair that turned out to be perfect. So, not only would my son recommend these particular sticks, I am so pleased with the help I received while ordering! Thank you MF

These sticks aren't very durable. I had them for a day and I went through a pair already. I don't know if it's me or the sticks but if your thinking about buying these sticks don't. I hit my cymbals alot and they snap right in half.

        Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks:

        I've been using the Vic Firth X5B sticks for years, after previously using the regular 5A and 5B. The added length gives me more options on how to hold the stick (I can choke up for lighter playing), and I don't hit very hard, so these sticks give me a more powerful sound with each hit.
        My only complaint is sometimes the wood tips chip prematurely. It's not often enough to be a problem, and the size/weight of these sticks is perfect for me otherwise.

                I play a large kit...14 cymbals, and the extra reach these sticks provide is handy in my case.
                Wonderfully finished...smooth but not slippery, well balanced and consistent with both sticks, strong straight grained, but be mindful that although the increased length makes reaching for distant cymbals a breeze, it also means a higher contact point on the snare head unless you compensate in some way...choke up, sit further back, etc.
                These did what I needed them to do, and so for my needs they're excellent.

                  I use these sticks all the time. For the most part they are durable and do what they are supposed to. Lately I've come across several sticks that break easily and are much lighter than what I'm used to. Probably the difference in the density of the tree used. They are matched together when you buy them. The problem is when you break a stick and have to mix up the matched set. Some sticks are much heavier or lighter than another.
