Over all. terrible, dont waste your money.... you will put a hole in your bass drum head with this thing... This beater is hard as a rock, didnt even work with my bass drum head, and put a hole in it with in a month!!!
I like the weight and that it's almost as hard and punchy as a wood beater, but not as wet slap sounding. And if you do a lot of toe, heal toe, or muting, most of these style beaters tend to wear out heads quicker. I like this one and the Yamaha ones. Glad they make them with hardened steel now. I've actually broken the other ones.
