          These sticks are great! The price is unbeatable and the pairs I've seen so far have no defects. They are pretty well weighted and they feel good.
          That being said the description of these sticks is NOT accurate. I bought these thinking they would be 16 in long based on the description but they are actually 15 in, which makes a HUGE difference in feel. It will take some getting used to. The description also said they have a barrel tip but it's more of a ball tip.
          Bottom line, if you are looking for good quality cheap sticks and don't mind them being shorter these are the sticks for you!

          I ordered these on a whim - they were inexpensive, and I thought "if they're good, I'll use them; if not, I'll give them away." Inasmuch, I've already given most of them away.

          I'll preface this with the fact that I had previously ordered some 5A's (also LA Special). Those were described as 16" long and pictured with an acorn tip. What I received were 15.5" long and had a pea shaped tip. Further, their diameter was closer to 7A. I thought that perhaps if the 5A's ran small, perhaps the 5B's would, too... but I was wrong.

          These were described as 16" long. What I received are 16.75" long. Diameter was about right for a 5B - but they're just too long to feel comfortable to me. That doesn't make them "bad"; it just makes them "not as described" and "not what I prefer". At least they were inexpensive.

          my bundle was all that it said it would be. sixteen inches ,barrel tip, everything but the logo.Seems crazy but I actually prefer them over my others. you can see which two are alike, so you can pair them up. Iam going to have a hard time going back to paying 8.00 apair,these sticks have spoiled me.

              Excellent sticks. No labels, but all the stick for a fraction of the cost. I will be buying more like these for sure.

                          I can't imagine the quality control pro-mark goes through for their full priced sticks. These have minimal flaws if any. This really makes me confident that pro mark has really high standards. These are the best cheap sticks on the market! Believe me i've tried quite a few cheap brands being that i'm a poor college student lol... Buy these.

                          This is an incredible deal from 10 pairs of drums tricks . However, they are two inches shorter then the usual 5b pro mark drum stick. So they feel a little awkward but they are durable . They are a good enough price for the starving artist to get used to the feel.

                                Why would anyone pay the price to have a name painted on their drumsticks? These are a great value.
