These sticks last forever, and have a real nice feal to them. I did have to take some sandpaper to the grip ends to increase grip, they where a little too smooth but other than that, great sticks. They are a bit heavy, but that helps to really bring out the tone of the drum. At first did not like the weight, but after playing a couple of sets, I love how they make my drums sound. A++++

Longer Lasting

By K-Kerry

from Bay Area

See all my reviews

Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

I like these sticks because, for me, they last a lot longer than wooden sticks do and they also have a nice bounce off the head. Their only drawback is that they make your drums sound different than wooden sticks, so, you will need to retune your set to these or any sticks made of this sort of material. I need to retune my drums a bit lower and open up the dynamics a bit to achieve a similar sound as I get using wooden sticks of comparable size. Its like if you are playing an accoustic guitar and you switch from a medium pick to a thin.

THE DREAM STICKS

By Vasquez Perrotta

from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

I own a pair of Aquarian's X-10 Concert Drumsticks for more than 25 years, since my school days and I still have the same ones; for me they are unbreakables, they have never loose their balance, they never harm the cymbals and have the best sound when you hit the sneare rim. I play with a lot of character and I like a stick who define my beat, Aquarian X-10 is the one to achieve it. For me they are the best drumsticks in the world.

Have used the same pair for months

By Mackbd

Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

I'm gonna come right and say it...I play heavy. These sticks have taken everything i've thrown at them. I literally can not break these. Trust me, i've tried.I took a well-worn size 5A stick outside, and smashed it hard against the pavement, with all of my might, dozens of times. It would not be broken, and was barely dented at the tip.- The volume produced between the drum heads vs. the cymbals is pretty even, one doesn't overwhelm the other.- The tone produced between being used on the drum heads and cymbals seems very mid-range.- Switching to any other wooden stick, the immediately realized how much lighter the aquarians were in comparison

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I had high hopes for these sticks since I play hard, but don't like big sticks. I go through a lot of Pro-Mark oak 747s.
      These sticks feel nice - they are a bit more flexible than wood sticks but I liked the feel. Two practices in, and I broke one stick about an inch from the tip (they are hollow - how about that!)
      So I guess I'll use up the two pairs I bought and go back to the regular ol' wood sticks.

      These sticks rock!

      By clickelliott

      from Ohio

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I finally broke one of these sticks after about 3 months, but they're still the best I've ever used. They're not too heavy, sound like vinyl tips on the cymbals, and last much longer than wood sticks.

      very good

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I own a pair of 5a's and I love them. I started out with regular wood 5a's and broke about a pair a week, but these sticks last me a good 2 months. They have a little different feel from wood but you get used to it after you play a few times. I think they even have a better bounce than wood. It also makes your cymbals sound better. They do have a higher price than normal sticks but I accually save money. Good buy.

      Durable but not functional

      By Eva Hess

      from CA

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      dont buy unless you dont care about the way your drums sound or unless you use an electronic kit
      these stick do something that deadens the sound of the drum. I'm not sure what it is but a drum hit with one of these sounds drastically different (in a bad way) than the same drum hit with a wood stick.
      even though they dont work well, they are still extremely durable as stated

      No durability = stick (ha!) to wood

      By rekrdskratcher

      from Iowa

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      In terms of feel, I thought these were pretty awesome. A little lighter than wood, perhaps, but not enough that it was a noticeable difference for me.But durability? That's a joke. Yes, I hit pretty hard, but I seriously broke a pair halfway through a show and started seeing the other pair cracking down the seams 2 days later at a different show. Good thing I still brought wooden pairs as backup; I was otherwise planning on relying on these as my 2 main pairs.It would have been great if they HAD lasted even a month as other have mentioned in reviews, since I probably go through a couple pairs a week, but these couldn't even last more than a few songs. Forget it, I'll spend 2 dollars less per pair and deal with replacing them as often as I always have. Maybe I got a bum pair or two, but still, what a disappointment.

      Durable for sensible drummer

      By Drummer Dude-Uh2Eb

      from Metro Atlanta, GA

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I've had a set of the 5A's for about 15 years now. They sound warmer(not as much "bark") on drums and cymbals than regular nylon or wooden-tipped sticks(and I've used all brands), especially in recording sessions. I will purchase more of these 5A's.

      X-10 Rock

      By Shane Balkcom

      from Michigan

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I bought these to see if they would hold up to my playing style; hard. I've used them for about 6 hours of playing. They do create more vibrations with everything they are connected; i.e., hands. One thing I've noticed is that after about 10 mins, I think due to warming up, they "feel" floppy. I'm used to Aheads. With Aheads, floppy is not good. It equals broken. A bit disconcerting. However, they are not broken. They are lighter than what I'm used to playing, but I think I can adapt. They sound good on the cymbals as another reviewer has stated. I have a Zildjian Projection Crash that I think could break the sticks. So far, they've held up. I wish that MF would sell the grips for them. I bought another pair that has them from another vendor. They add balance to the stick and are reusable. Overall, I like them. In the long run, they'll be cheaper.
      And something for those who play hard, if you break these, play the stick in your hand and not the one in your head. I have been using Aheads for close to 8 yrs. I've broken every single one. Why? Because It's easier to play hard with them. How many sticks/heads/cymbals have we destroyed because of our style? Stop blaming the stick/head/cymbal. It's the player.

      Great for hard hitters

      By Bigfoot-jWNUy

      from Florida

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      These sticks are incredibly durable and utterly consistent. I've saved a fortune in sticks by using these for the last 10 years. And they're perfect for studio work, creating the same sound and feel, take after take.I'm not wild about them for really soft playing - they sound best when playing rimshots on the snare. But for rock gigs - particularly when you're sweating it out set after set in some bar and not making enough money to pay for broken sticks, these are a godsend!

          Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

          I got these in December. And it's March now and they finally broke. These sticks last a long time. Only brand of stick that lasts longer is probably ahead. but ahead isnt as good as these sticks. Ahead cant do rim clicks well since they are plasitc. but are durable. Woodsticks arent too durable and break in a couple a weeks or so but have alot of features. These sticks are a combination of each. THey last a long time and have the same if not more features as woodsticks. These sticks are hollow and very light. I recommend these sticks to all drummers.

          These sticks are great. They sound good for any kind of music, so they are very versatile for any kind of percussion. They last a LOT longer than wooden sticks and sound just as good if not better. I know there's no picture of them, but they are all black with no writing or anything on them, with a black vinyl tip. I highly recommend them to anyone.

          Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

          For years now, wooden sticks have been my staple sticks. I've tried CarboSticks, along with all the other synthetic drumsticks. The X-10 Forumla is THE BEST, hands down. It's got the most realistic feel, good balance and weight, and they can last an easy 3 times longer than the average wodden stick. I love them. I'll never pick up a wooden stick again!
