    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    Ahead sticks work great, there heavy as oak sticks but there balanced and play great once u get used to them. If u dont know how to hit a crash yes u will break your cymbals with these! tommy lee and lars both say they crack much less crashes with these sticks than wood sticks. I had a pair of tommy lee for 10 years before i broke one playin hard on a rides bell. The covers last longer than sticks but they will need to be replaced so go ahead and buy 3-4 covers ahead of time so u have them later. If you have your cymbals not tilted u will be buying new cymbals soon, and if u go through the sleeves in 3 days then you need some 2b sticks and your doing something wrong for sure. either hi hat to high and your chopping the stick away or cymbals to flat and your chopping the edge away there.

    Good, tough covers. The sticks themselves are slippery little buggers, but they have excelent feel.

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    The one downfall is that you have to replace your covers, but it makes up for the wood chips - and they're cheap. Definitely worth the money.

    Great system for longer lasting sticks

    By Jeremy Brooks

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    This product is great as long as you keep those cymbals at the right angle or you can destroy them just as fast as you bought them.

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    I've found the "Lars" to be very durable, even when the covers were trashed...my cymbals suffered though, so show some love to them & replace the old one's with these
    I don't know of any other option besides these, but they do their job well & are worth it!
    Not replacing them is like not changing the oil in your car...STUPID!!!
    If you love Ahead sticks like I do...Keep 'em Around!! The sticks are not cheap but a little love will keep them going much longer, & these covers are essential to that. ROCK ON !!!!!!!

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    I us the Lars signatures, I love them to death. I tend to break a lot of sticks till I switched to this brand. I've had them since xmas and have recently bought new covers. I play for about an hour a night and they hold up so well and are resilient to most anything. If you are the type who breaks a lot of sticks, please do yourself a favor and get these because you'll save yourself a lot of money.

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    I have the Lars model and I've had them for well over a year now. I've replaced the covers 3 times in that time period and I'm over due to replace them again. You really only need to replace them when you have noticeable gashes in the covers, not just because they look torn up.

    Ahead Rules

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    Ever sense I bought the Lars Ulrich signature Ahead sticks I never went back to wood sticks again. Every time I used a set of wooden sticks they would break in a week. It's nice to just buy sleeves instead of all new sticks

    Comments about Ahead Long Taper Drumstick Covers:

    I have the Lars Ulrich model and they hold up for awhile. I play no less than 3 times weekly if I can help it. These sticks are an awesome buy. The sleves can wear out quickly or last forever it depends on how hard and how long you're playing for. I would personally recommend them to anyone who frequently breaks wood sticks.
