        I like the Vic Firth 1As a lot.
        Before these, I was using the Vater 1As, which are generally awesome sticks. After too many curvy Vater "bananas" though, I needed something else with an extra long length and medium-ish heft. The Vic Firths are a good substitute. The relatively bulbous taper wears very well, the tips don't chip as much, and they're consistantly straight. I use them for everything. :)

        Received two pairs of 5A's which I've used for years. This was the first time I ordered them from MF though. Normally, Vic Firth sticks are great. Both pairs were defectively made. The taper had splintering areas, as did much of the tip. Very rough and poorly made, snagged on material and I wished I could return these. It looks like they didn't even have any lacquer on the taper of tip. Really disappointed.

              These are quality sticks. I've had them a about a week or so I can't comment on durability. I can say they are nicely balanced, are well matched and have a great feel.

              Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

              Received two pairs of 5A's which I've used for years. This was the first time I ordered them from MF though. Normally, Vic Firth sticks are great. Both pairs were defectively made. The taper had splintering areas, as did much of the tip. Very rough and poorly made, snagged on material and I wished I could return these. It looks like they didn't even have any lacquer on the taper of tip. Really disappointed.

              These sticks are amazing sticks for the price. They make my drums and cymbals sound really good. They are also pretty durable. The only down-side though is the wood tips. They tend to chip very easy. I just got a pair of 5As about 3 weeks ago. i haven't even used them very much, but today when I was playing, a big chunk came off of the tip. The same thing happened to my last pair. So I would advice you to get the nylon tipped ones, especially if you do lots of rock and metal. Overall, though, they are great sticks. Very cheap and good quality.

                  In short, these work. 5B is the right one for me most of the time, but I use other sizes, most often lighter, sometimes. There is one point where these fell short in a minor way. The label is evidently put on by machine, so care is not taken to the label placement with respect to the grain of the wood. You probably want to put a permanent mark on top of the grain for your own use. Nevertheless, Vic Firth makes a quality stick. Why have you not bought yours yet? It does not cost much to try out different sticks, just be sure this is one you try. I think it will become your standard.

                  This stick is fantastic, though I must warn you do not buy the metal stick with the nylon tip. I ordered a 3 pack of those and they broke within 2 hits, even though Musicians Friend sent me new pairs. 2 out of the 3 new ones were just like the previous and broke. The wood tip is amazing though. I get awesome stick definition on my mega bell ride, and the stick is heavy enough to crash on a 20" ride perfectly. If you are considering this stick for any genre get it, though I have only tested it for style such as Djent, Metalcore, and Death Metal.

                  These sticks have really great feel and have excellent balance in may hands for light playing compared to other sticks I've used. They have great response with the hi-hat and are easy to do rudimental things like diddles and flams. If you are going to be playing a good deal of loud, rock music you should look for a stronger stick but the Vic Firth 5A wood tip is a superior stick overall!
