        Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

        These sticks are the first promarks i have ever gotten till now it was Vic firth or big pack of nameless sticks.
        I have received them just today and they are feeling better than my standard American classic 55a. these have a good punch and can be very sensitive too, in fact despite being a forward balance model these sticks have good rebound which i like. and for testing their durability i did couple of rim shots and the only marks on them were from the dust and dirt on my kit
        (i don't play that hard but still)
        I Love these sticks and look forward to drumming with them.

            Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

            After 35 years I finally found the perfect stick. I have been playing 7As, but from now on I'll stick (pun not intended) to the 535 forard balance. A little longer (5/8 of an inch) and a tiny bit thicker, they make the perfect stick for me. One of those finds that make you really happy and excited and you can't wait to go play drums.

                Comments about PROMARK Select Balance Forward Balance Wood Tip Drum Sticks:

                I bought two pairs of the new Promark Select Balance in the .535 diameter for a test drive. I got one rebound balance and one forward balance. I have been using Promark 7A wood tip sticks for many years now, I always found the 5As a little too thick and heavy and they slowed me down after playing a couple of songs. But on the other side, I always wished that the 7As were a little longer and a tiny bit thicker. Well, my wish has been granted. These new Select Balance in the .535 diameter are just a tiny bit thicker than the 7A .512, and also 5/8 of an inch longer. Perfect. The next question was if the forward and rebound balance thing was just a selling gimmick or if it really made a difference. Well. it absolutely does. I thought that I would prefer the rebound balance, but I found out that there was too much weight in the back for me, so I found myself having to do too much work. The forward balance on the other hand, gave me the perfect control, and also I can get a little more power and speed than the 7As, with the same feel and effort. Also, being a little bit thicker, I can loosen a little bit on my grip without having the stick flying away and letting me play more relaxed. After a couple of days of testing I ordered more pairs of the .535 forward balance. They will be my stick of choice from now on. Excellent sticks. Great job Promark. Try them, they really do what they say they do, which is not always true when companies come out with new things.
