      I would break a stick about almost every show and practice, costing about 8 bucks every time I play. One pair has lasted about 2 years, with just changing the cover and a few tips. They save you alot of money, you get used to the feel of them and won't go back to wood. I recommend 2 sets for live players, tips can eventually crack or come loose and fly off over time and I have broken one stick in half doing very hard rim shots. I also ruined the threads on one not noticing the tip came off right away playing live, so if the tips breaks live flip the stick to the butt end and finish the song with it or grab another stick while playing. No tip on it will also kill your heads. I also check tips to make sure they are not coming un-tightened between breaks to be safe, which doesn't happen often at all unless its a 3 hour jam

      I bought these sticks because I'm a huge Metallica fan, also hoping they would be the last pair of sticks I had to buy as a casual drummer. However, I was very disapointed in them. Personally I think they are a better decoration than drumstick. These sticks are HEAVY, which is to be expected because they're made of metal, but it drastically limits playability. Recently the sticks broke also... not that I'm too dissapointed because the drummer of my band also broke his pair. I also noticed that the weight of the sticks takes away from the true sound of the drums, like they absorb sound. Wooden sticks lift much faster letting the true tone of the drums out. I just don't see them being worth the 30 dollars. Too heavy, too slow, too weak for the cash.

            Sticks Last Forever - Cymbals & Heads Don't!

            By ArkansasDrummer

            from Arkansas

            Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

            Yes, these Sticks will Last Forever! Replace the plastic parts about once a year for standard practicing and gigging.BUT over time they cut through Cymbals & Heads like they were butter!!! Sticks are too long and heavy, so you loose bounce and too much vibration causes sore hands!I loved the Ahead Sticks at first! Finally a stick that lasts for years with no breaing or splitering. After a month Evans and Remo Heads were gone! Only Aquarian Performance II Heads will take the beating! After a year started cutting through Zildjian Cymbals, and denting Sabians.I've played for 25 years on High School Drumlines, All-Region Honor Band, my College Drumline, and in Rock/Metal/Punk/Grunge Bands. I have proper technique, and I'm not a heavy hitter.Sticks that last forever seemed great, but not worth it when they start ruining more expensive Cymbals and Heads!I recommend trying: ProMark White Oak, or Aquarian X-10 Graphite!!!!

            Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

            I bought these the other day and tried them out. These are the best sticks I have ever used! The are loud and the sound they produce is clearer than any thing I have used. I would recommend these sticks even if you are not a fan of Metallica. The price is a little steep but it's really an investment into your playing.

            Some people might say "these sicks are awefull, they're the worst" well that's because they only tried one pair, I've had 2 pairs a so far they've been working just fine, they're light, they feel good, and I can play longer than usual.

            Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks Review

            By Drummingisawesome

            from planet earth, USA

            Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

            Im a HUGE Metallica fan; I've been listening to their music for a long time and they inspired me to play drums. Thats why when I bought my drum kit I thought I should get these, and I'll never regret getting them. 1)These sticks will NEVER break. Perfect for hard hitters. Ive used many woodsticks and I'd break a pair every week. These, been using them for 4 months of hard hitting on cymbals and drums. They have some marks around them, but they will never chop off like wood sticks.2) very high quality material. The bottom part of the stick (where you hold it)is made out of a metal that has a rough texture on the outside. This improves the grip so much, and unlike wood sticks, you wont have them flying out of your hand at high speed drumming. The upper part is constructed from hard plastic and can stand very hard hitting. The only "bad" thing I can think of is that these sticks are heavy in terms of weight. They are about twice as heavy as wooden sticks.Over all, I give them a 9.8/10. They last forever and the quality is amazing. 2 Thumbs up.

            best sticks on the market

            Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

            i own 2 pair of these sticks and they are the best on the market. the weight is distributed very nice for harder, faster playing. the tips sound great on all cymbals as well. i would recommend ordering some grip tape, extra covers and a new set of tips while ordering the stick. the covers and tips are cheap and easy to replace.

            Best sticks you can buy

            By DMac11961

            from Peytona, WV

            Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

            Simply amazing.First off, I play Hard Rock and Heavy Metal and drummers of that genre have to hit pretty hard to be heard over some guitar riffs. These sticks personally have the best feel to them. Every time you hit a drum piece with these sticks it almost feels second-nature. I probably won't use any other kind of sticks again, considering these feel amazing and are practically indestructible. One thing I would like to point out is that you feel very little to no vibration at all, regardless of how much effort you put into it AND the sticks allow you to hit harder with less effort! They are somewhat heavier, but fast rolls and playing with extreme speed is still very much achievable. Best investment I have made as a drummer, hands down. Great work by Ahead.
