This is a great product for a player who plays just about every style of music, although for metal you would want something a little heavier than this. I've used both the nylon tip and regular wooden tips. The nylon tips do a great job of bringing out a brighter cymbal stike. The grip on the sticks are effective as long as you don't hold on TOO tight where your hands get sweaty. And I've taken these to The House of Blues in Dallas, the Dallas Music Fest, and numerous local venues around central Texas. Great sticks for a great value.

If you're looking for a good grip, this is not the stick you want. I have a big problem with sticks slipping when I play for a while.. I normally buy Vater grip tape which works great, but decided to give these a try just to see if the grip works... IT DOESN'T... They were actually more slippery than just wood by itself. Look elsewhere if you need a better grip and don't waste money on these.

    The red color/dye comes off in your hands, and it is very sticky. Should you get it on your clothes or drums, it is very nearly impossible to remove.

                      The sticks I received are good sticks and held up well under my type pf play. I'm not a heavy hitter typically, nor am I "flashy". I'm a pocket drummer that plays rock, country new and old covers in working bands.

                      I'm not used to the "grippy" feeling so they felt a little sticky to me first time out but that's just because I'm not used to them.

                      Overall, I'd probably purchase more.

                        Prior to using this stick I really liked the Vic Firth Dave Weckle signature sticks. As much as I liked the sticks, I hated the finish on them. I wrote Vic Firth and was surprise they actually wrote back. They recommended that I try the Vic grips. Excellent recommendation.

                        It was a disappointment when I received the Sticks from M.F. The sticks felt like they had been dropped in a pile of dirt. They were really gritty and dirty. I was really looking forward to that nice new rubber feel. I was able to clean them but shouldn't have had to. I will probably buy these stick elsewhere next time

                          I tried Zildjian maple grip sticks and I loved them but I broke two pairs within two weeks of each other. I needed hickory grip sticks and I saw these and got 'em immediately. They are much more durable, have the same grip, and are much better drumsticks overall. Vic Firth does it again!

                          I tried these sticks for the first time and they are great. They are light for medium to soft playing and the grip is marvelous. I am going to order several more pair shortly.
