I've been playing drums for 40 years. These don't break as often as other sticks do. In fact, I haven't broke one of these yet.

    My 15 year old son has been playing drums for almost 3 years. And when I say playing I mean he plays HOURS each day. He loves these sticks and states they are his favorite, and he has tried many. He is a heavy hitter and breaks sticks often. A cheaply made stick will maybe last a week. These sticks last him months! These are similar to the Vater Percussion 5b he was using before but he likes these much better. They seem to be a little heavier and thicker in the neck. These are his hands down favorite but as an alternative he likes the Vic Firth American Classic Metal sticks too. Everyone is different but for my hard hitting, would play constantly if he could, son, these sticks can't be beat!

        Chad Smith made a very good stick. Since he is a very hard player he needs a good strong stick and thats what you get here. He used 5B's for a while and these feel just like that only a little bit lighter. I recommend these sticks to anyone.

              These are amazing sticks. The 2b's seemed a little to big for me but 5b's snapped way to quickly with how hard I play. These sticks are perfect. Had them for about a week and I still havent gotten a crack around the tip like I usually get. These are amazing sticks and I love them

                Easily the best deal on sticks I've ever had. These are some of my favorite sticks I've used, and at this price...my god.
                I often break lesser sticks. Even Vater's warriors usually snap pretty quickly for me. These just keep on trucking. It is astonishing to me how much they can take. I played two shows and a whole night of practice with one pair, and they're still in good shape. One of them is finally starting to actually chip instead of just dent.
                I'm impressed.
                Can not beat.

                Good stuff, buy them.
                Y NO LAZERBEAM?!
                I'm a pretty heavy hitter. These a pair of these guys lasted me for a week. One of the sticks is still just fine, the other cracked apart at the end of a very intense five hour practice.We play Zeppelin and stuff so like, I play loud. Yeah.
                They feel a little light in my hands but they fit well and don't slip.
                !!!!!!Great Price!!!!

                I did a review on these a while ago, and this is an updated review. These sticks are my favorite stick ive ever played. I love the length, not too long, not too short, if you want a little bit longer of a stick, i recommend the dave grohl signatures, because they feel very similar just a little bit longer. These sticks are really solid, the taper is really thick. They dont break easily at all, like most vater sticks, the quality is superb. Their feel is amazing, the size is perfect, they feel like a 5b but just a little bit beefier, which is perfect, because i always thought that the 5bs were barely just a little to thin for me. I will buy many more pairs of these sticks, because quite frankly, theyre the best.
