These are nice beaters. Picked up 2 to replace my ageing felt beaters. Use them with a double pedal on my Roland V-drums with mesh heads. They work good , but they are NOT so lightweight. They'd be great on acoustic kits , especially with the plastic side beater.

As everything made by Gibraltar, this is a great quality item. I am giving it 3 stars for two reasons. One, the beater is not as light as I expected for something advertised as such. This beater weighs more than my Pearl Duo Beat. Playing with the Gibraltar slowed me down as a player.
Two, I used the felt side and this beater has too much attack. You can hear a loud slap when it hits the head. It would be impossible to record with this beater for my taste. Now, if that is what you are looking for, this is for you. It is just not for me. I asume that it'd be good for some fast trash metal. But I would not recommend it for rock, blues, jazz, or more subtle genres.
These two reasons are based on my personal taste, so this beater might work for others. Other wise, it has great quality and is obvious that it will last forever. The felt is thick, and the construction is solid.

          Comments about Gibraltar Lightweight Drum Beater:

          I got this as a cheap way to have a felt beater for the 18" bass drum on my new jazz set. Its OK for this. But it is so lightweight, it would be useless on my DW rock.

            If you want an extra punch and eliminate a little of that big fat resonance, this beater helps you get the sound of the drumhead.

                    Replaced my Pacific Concept beaters on my double pedal. These are much lighter and faster. Very pleased with the speed I'm getting vs. the PDP beaters. Would definately reccomend.

                    These are NOT lightweight beaters. They weigh EXACTLY the same as the Tama Iron Cobra beaters with NONE of the features or functionality.

                    There are honestly the worst beaters I've ever used, and these aren't lightweight, they're around average weight. Just save up and buy some detanators ( some of the best beaters ever - #1 in my opinion ) or some Tama Wood Beaters.

                    This beater is indeed light weight compared to the one on my PDP402 double bass pedal(its like a DW beater) I just got this today (5/8/09) and I put it on my pedal, its a blast, it has a nice rich,deep bass drum sound. I recommend you use the felt side. This beater is AWESOME! I would recommend this beater to any one who wants a lighter beater, or just a new one. Great job Gibraltar!
