      Have used, Use and will continue to use these sticks. These sticks have out preformed any wood stick ever (not to mention the lack of sawdust I have to clean off my set). Some people have complained about weight of the tip of these sticks I don?t know why when they are balanced dead center and just south of dead center with stick tape. I have never broken one of these sticks and I play hard. I think the people that are breaking these sticks are the same ones that say they go through 3 sets of wood sticks in one night or one gig, so I think it is safe to assume that these people are breaking sticks dew to improper sticking rather than inferior sticks. These sticks have removable replaceable tips and sleeves. If the sleeves get cut to the metal replace them if the tips get lose tighten them or replace them either way it is still cheaper than buying new sticks. These sticks play great and don?t vibrate like wood sticks (in my opinion the sticks lack of vibration is what has caused some people to get blisters the sticks tend to stay put in your hand you don?t have to regrip the stick so much therefore the stick stays in contact with your skin longer in one place and may cause blisters).

      I got 2 pairs of these because I needed to try something different. I'd go through wood sticks like a lumberjack.These are great quality sticks, but they're not quite as durable as they should be. They feel like they have bad balance, and after a short time the sleeves get a little stretched out and it allows for very intense vibration through the body of the stick... can get very painful.Here's my biggest problem. I broke these bad boys IN HALF before I replaced the sleeves for the first time. Maybe they expect you to change the sleeves BEFORE they start cutting through, though. (I didn't even bust or dent up my snare head...)They lasted quite a bit longer than wood sticks, but they feel weird. Don't get them unless you're gonna get drumming gloves.

      Black on Whites

      By anthony zeppetella

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      worth the money
      I find these drumsticks very useful in many ways.
      1. They look cool (not the biggest thing but its a plus)
      2. Solid hits
      3. You can beat them up very hard, more than wooden ones
      4. They dont put any damage marks on your heads or cymbals

      but they do have some negatives
      1. These particular "rock" sticks are a bit heavy for my taste
      2. they are expensive

      overall great sticks i would give them a try if I were anyone, they do last a good amount of time and they do come in a variety of weights not just this one. Personally if I could choose to be sponsored for sticks, ahead is where to go.

      It is possible to break these..

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      I've broken two of these style of drumsticks (I had the Joey Jordison signature pairs). After about 6 months of playing hard with these, it is very possible for the aluminum core on the inside to snap in half.My guess is that it's from either rim shots or the ride bell. Either way, they are definitely NOT indestructible, unfortunately.I will say that the performance of these sticks are outstanding and I love playing with them, but after you break a couple of them, you start to not want to spend so much on a pair of them if you know they are going to break again.Worth the money until they break.

      Very Hard Hitter

      By Violent Vic

      from Central NY

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      I've been a rock drummer for twenty-five years now and have tried alot of different kinds of sticks. The Ahead sticks are what works for me. I hit very hard for about thirty to fourty rock tunes. I've broken very few since I started using this brand. The savings from broken wood sticks is worth the extra cost. I only broke a few hitting the bell on my ride cymbal.

      Awesome sticks with one flaw

      By dekoarte13

      from Tampa Bay, Florida

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      Well I have a really bad problem of breaking pair after pair of wooden sticks. At one point i went to a gig with 6 pairs of sticks and would have zero by are 5th song out of a set list of 8 tracks!So i heard of these sticks and i decided to give it a try. great feel, nice weight and they look pretty damn cool, But my one thing is that these sticks are so powerful now instead of breaking sticks i break heads and cymbals!! and there is nothing worser than breaking your snare or a cymbal in the middle of a gig trust me!I really would rather prefer breaking wooden sticks than cymbals and heads in my opinion. So unless you got lots of money and/or are sponsored by a brand of heads and cymbals or are just not a "hard hitter" be careful, because these sticks really are a weapon!

      By metaldrummer#1-8ZLr3

      from inland northwest usa

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      these are awesome, bought 2 pr 8 yrs ago broke 1 about a wk ago, probably from the kids beating on the rims with them though, they reduce fatigue dramaticly, balanced great, i recommend these to all the drummers i know(not necesarily the "rock" sticks they are large), sleeves are easily replaced with a blow dryer or hot water, excellent excellent sticks havent picked up a wood stick since i went Ahead.

      Long-Term Money-in-the-Bank

      By NinjaNate

      from C-ville, IN

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      I have played with these for about a year now. I used to go through a pair of 747 japanese oak pro-marks every practice session, which got very expensive. Not to mention, no matter how often I played, I always got new blisters and wear on my hands. In complete support of Ahead rock drumsticks, I love everything about these. I find these to produce excellent sound and to be extremely comfortable.

      Mandatory for Metal Drummer

      By Schwanz99

      from Pine City, MN

      Comments about Ahead Rock Drumsticks:

      I've had these sticks for the last 8 years and couldn't be happier. I've been through a few sleeves and no tips. I do have to super glue the tips on though but that's because I'm a hard hitter. I've played with wood sticks in between these and it's not the same. I used 2B wood sticks and they broke after a half hour of playing every item I used them. That gets expensive. Ahead's stick are alot lighter, and more balanced than any wood stick on the market. If you want to sacrifice money for durability and quality, ahead sticks are the way to go. I'm sold on them.
