I got a pair of these sticks about 4 years ago and still have them. I got them when I played a lot more back in high school and they stood up to the abuse pretty well. They do chip and splinter, but you can make these last awhile. They do have a chance of leaving black or red, (depending on what color you get), marks behind as you play. These sticks worked great for me, but I have noticed others having a lot of trouble with them. I would suggest at least trying them out and seeing if you like them.

These are budget quality sticks- NOT just renamed blemished Vic Firths. They have different paint, different tip shape, and most crucially, different taper: the 5B model's is a much shorter & more abrupt taper- making them front heavy compared to Vic Firth 5B sticks. Not bad- but not a deal on real Vic Firths...

            Bought these for myself to practice and my son is a snare player in the school band. Fairly good deal and price for what we will be using them for.

            I got these on a whim. Looking for new sticks, figured I would give them a try. I am very impressed with them. Vic 2nds or not, they seem like they hold up even better. A little shoulder ware, but after six months on the same pair. I couldn't ask for more(other than other sizes). Great, durable, long lasting stick. Takes rim shots like a champ. Out lasted Vic's Classic black.

                Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

                I bought these (the red version) for my four-year old son to play with. At the price, I didn't expect them to last long, but I didn't expect them to break the very first time he used them either. I was very disappointed, but not as disappointed as my son.

                Poor Quality Drum Sticks

                By 

                from Raleigh, NC

                Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

                I do not like the weakness and propensity to break in half early in the life cycle.
                I used these drum sticks twice and one of them broke in half. It had a knot right in the center and the stick dissintegrated. How sad. They were so inexpensive, I did not even bother about reporting the issue, but I cannot recommend these sticks.
                They broke in the 2nd use.
                Great price, but for what?

                Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

                These are a decent set of sticks for the price. I got the red ones in 5A and they are very comfortable. The only complaint is that they leave red marks on my cymbals and heads, but i should have figured that. i would suggest the nylon tips to avoid this problem.
