    I have been playing Vater's for a long time. I started out using Vic Firths and moved on to Vater's after breaking a few pairs easily. In the previous years I have changed my set-up (cymbal placement, angles, toms, etc.) and got my set-up at the point where it is perfect to play but using Vater's have been constant. I have a few sets of Vater's that have been sitting around new and haven't seen any action. These sticks are BOMBPROOF!

    I carry a set around me all the time for practice and whatever comes up and because I am a university student on a budget, I have been using the same sticks for solo practice for well over 4 months. I play quite regularly and at times I am a hard hitter but I am sure many others can agree with me that they last. They are wood, so you have a possibility of getting a bad pair. I have had a few where there was a knot that would pop out in the shaft of the stick. With my experience, these things either break in the first 5 minutes of playing them or they will last you a long friggin time.

    Amazing sticks, Vater 5A's never let me down. It's nice knowing that when you go to a gig you wont be chopping through sticks like Paul Bunyan.

    Another note: For you people that have to play in quieter venues or rehearsal's with vocal groups all while trying to play with a softer touch, check out Vater's BeBop sticks! I got a couple sets of the 500's and they are great for situations like that to mix in with the brushes.

    Overall, I WOULD NOT buy another pair. I may have gotten a bad pair, but I still don't want to waste money on another pair. I'll probably try out a couple other sizes and types from Vater, but I'm still wary of the quality of these. Not nearly as bad as the Regal Tips that broke in less than 5 minutes of playing though, but I'm sticking with Pro-mark as my main sticks.
    I picked up a pair of the Fusion size sticks after a recommendation from a friend at a local music store. when I first got home, I liked them. Felt great in my hands, light yet not cheap, and seemed at least decent quality. I began to play them, and within about 20 minutes, half of the tip on one of the sticks broke off. No problem, I thought, I'll just use the other one for my ride. Around half an hour later, the other stick BROKE straight down the middle. I might be considered somewhat of a hard hitter, but I've never broken my Pro-marks that quickly.
    Like I said, broke a tip pretty quickly and the other stick snapped all in under an hour playing time. I wasn't going all out hardcore or anything, just regular playing. I may have gotten a bad pair, but it kind of ruined Vater sticks for me.
    Good price, but still not worth it if broken that fast.

        Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks:

        I have been playing Vater's for a long time. I started out using Vic Firths and moved on to Vater's after breaking a few pairs easily. In the previous years I have changed my set-up (cymbal placement, angles, toms, etc.) and got my set-up at the point where it is perfect to play but using Vater's have been constant. I have a few sets of Vater's that have been sitting around new and haven't seen any action. These sticks are BOMBPROOF!

        I carry a set around me all the time for practice and whatever comes up and because I am a university student on a budget, I have been using the same sticks for solo practice for well over 4 months. I play quite regularly and at times I am a hard hitter but I am sure many others can agree with me that they last. They are wood, so you have a possibility of getting a bad pair. I have had a few where there was a knot that would pop out in the shaft of the stick. With my experience, these things either break in the first 5 minutes of playing them or they will last you a long friggin time.

        Amazing sticks, Vater 5A's never let me down. It's nice knowing that when you go to a gig you wont be chopping through sticks like Paul Bunyan.

        Another note: For you people that have to play in quieter venues or rehearsal's with vocal groups all while trying to play with a softer touch, check out Vater's BeBop sticks! I got a couple sets of the 500's and they are great for situations like that to mix in with the brushes.

              This drumstick is just perfect. Great for rock, hip hop, latin... I just love it. It's thicker than 5A but thinner than 2A, and gives me a better grip and it bounces back a bit faster than 5A and 2A. highly recommended

                    Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks:

                    I've been playing Vater 1As for a few years now.
                    The extra length, acorn tip, and diameter are what drew me to these sticks.

                    I play a 13,16,18 tom setup, and they allow me to reach my second floor tom with ease, and draw out depth and power from the drums.
                    Smaller sticks make my drums go "dink" - larger sticks are just too much for my cymbals and less dynamic. The acorn tip is great for the ride.

                    Breakage is really a non-issue in my experience.
                    They'll usually wear away, "peel", and splinter until they're unusable.

                    My only problem is out of about every four pairs I get,
                    one pair doesn't pass the rolling test.
                    I sometimes swith to the Vic Firth 1A for that reason. Though they're not exactly the same, the Firths are suitable replacements.

                    Overall, they're pretty much the perfect sticks for me.

                      These sticks are slightly longer than standard 5As. I have used Vater sticks for the past five years, and have had several pairs last quite a while longer than I expected them to. The biggest problem with any wood-tipped sticks, in my opinion, is that the tips eventually start splintering. These have somewhat larger tips than standard 5As, so they should hold up well.

                        Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks:

                        These have been my primary stick for a few months. Before that I was using the Vic Firth 5a wood tip. But the tips were too small and fell apart so I stopped using those. These are about the same thickness as 5A but they are longer and have a bigger and rounder tip. When they are new they sound great on the ride/hihat. The problem I have is the tips slice off from top to bottom which creates a flat edge, and the sticks don't have to be used a long time for the tips to start breaking apart. For instance if you hit the edge of the cymbal or hit a wing nut etc, these things are toast. The longer length does help if you are into technical things like single hand rolls. But the added length also has a drawback. I find them a little hard to manuever around the tip without getting the tips stuck under rims, cymbals etc. I also think they are a little too light. If you are a precise hitter these could work for you. I have since moved to the George Kollias sticks (see my review).

                            i hated these sticks! the weight is anoying and seems unbalanced and had some trouble using them i would not recommend them at all!
                            The only good thing about these sticks are that they are very strong.
