Being a drummers most important tool, it is necessary to have reliable drumsticks. These hickory 5A sticks are very sturdy. They take heavy rim-shots very well without splintering to pieces. Compared to the Vic Firth sticks, they feel a bit more heavy. This is probably because these sticks have a bigger tip, which makes it good sticks for live performances.
