Now I get that Barker gets a lot of hate and I understand that but you can't deny he's a good drummer. Now I am a fan which is why I thought I'd try out the sticks but they are actually pretty decent. I usually go through sticks like crazy with my bad technique but these sticks have a nice feel to them and they don't break as easily as other sticks I've tried. They have a nice weight and they feel balanced in my hands, although the short taper makes it difficult to play faster, they make you work and it helps in the long run. Main reason I use these though is cause my Vic Firth X5B's get stolen at school every time. I can't lose these sticks there. Once I'm out though I'll probably go back to Vic ;)
