      Having been drumming for 35 years, I have tried many types of drumsticks, many manufacturers. When looking for a good pair of drumsticks, you want stix that are balanced well number one. If your practicing rudiments, switch sticks every once in a while you will see what I mean. Not to say Promark are the only balanced stix out there, but defintely to say they are superbly balanced, I notice immediately Im not fighting the weight of the drumstick it is working with me, giving my chops an effortless articulation and range of motion. Recently I was amazed when I tried out some hickory 7a's as well some other 5a and 5b all from other manufacturers with my PM 747's. even the "lighter" drum sticks felt heavier because of way they are balanced (or not balanced well). In todays drumming BPM is big deal... well, if you want to max out your your BPM in rolls etc, you need a stick that flows and bounces with the stroke, not one you wrestle.Next, durability... you always hear about breaking stix. I think for the most part you will grow out of that :-)... while some players are forced pound extra hard because of noisy guitar players, if your in the studio, or mic'd on stage you dont have to sacrifice the control of motion and sound dynamics and splinter stix. If you do, well then theres metal drumstix now for you. But when going q to q promark hickory is as nice as any other hickory stick out there. Its that simple. Wood will break on metal if you hit just right ;-)... it also wont break on metal if you hit just right.After about 6 months my promarks (I use 747's)look fuzzy...lots of shredding and splintering off the shaft, but I rarely, like one in the last 3 years, snap a shaft.So there you have it... I hope. A good qualiity stick, extremely well balanced, with high q selection of wood that is consistent pair to pair. Maybe other great sticks out there too, but promarks are defintely one of the best.

      These sticks are pretty good, but I would break a pair just about every week. I was using 2B sticks too! These are good for light hitters, but if you're a heavy hitter like me, get some Ahead sticks. They are way better for us metal heads. :)

                  Comments about PROMARK Natural Hickory Drumsticks:

                  I bought a pair of these after finding out that for every tree D'Addario cuts down, they plant 5 more (I'm always for companies that give back to the environment). I switched to these from Vics and I've come to really like them a lot.

                  They're cheap, have that non-lacquered feel which I love (and it makes gripping easier) and they can take a beating.

                  I play almost everyday for a few hours (throughout the day) and play a ton of rim shots and they have yet to snap. Actually, they have yet to splint (or whatever it's called when the wood starts tearing off).

                  The only negative thing I have to say about these is that the ink can spread. Other than that, I love these sticks.

                        Comments about PROMARK Natural Hickory Drumsticks:

                        I got the 747 nylons a while back and i finally broke them after what seemed like forever playing them! These to me are by far the best sticks ever because not only are they lightweight but they're extremely durable! These sticks beat out all the other brands i used in the past. I used a pair of vic firth drum stick for my birthday and started using them when these broke and not even a month later the stick broke and hit me right in the face while playing! Well anyways i went out to my nearest music shop and brought me a pair of pro-mark natural drum sticks in my favorite size (747N) and couldn't be more happier! if your a drummer looking for some new sticks BUY THESE TODAY!!!
