      I bought these sticks for my son as a Christmas gift, he's a drummer by profession. He told me that he would be ordering these again because he was very pleased. The thing that impressed me the most was the help I received when ordering. The ones I originally wanted were backordered- so the salesgirl put me on hold to locate another salesperson who is a drummer,he recommended a different pair that turned out to be perfect. So, not only would my son recommend these particular sticks, I am so pleased with the help I received while ordering! Thank you MF

      These sticks aren't very durable. I had them for a day and I went through a pair already. I don't know if it's me or the sticks but if your thinking about buying these sticks don't. I hit my cymbals alot and they snap right in half.

            Good pair of sticks. Provides the extra reach without compromising weight. Enhances control better than a 16" length.

                      The reason i bought these sticks was because of the original vicfirth logo as displayed in the picture. I prefer that logo spell because i like to distinguish my sticks when i share a kit with other drummers.

                        Been using the X5A's for nearly a year and I will continue to favor them in live and studio situations. What I like most is the feel, the added length and weight just feels right in your hand. Double stroke rolls seem to take less effort, I get more attack and rebound out of each stroke. I grade the durability of these sticks the same as regular 5A's, your experience may be different because they do give you more powerful strokes. Give them a try if your looking for a different feel around the kit and don't want to change the diameter of your 5A or 5B stick.
