"I wanted a drum stick that would pretty much be as light as I could design it. The reason I have the grips on the bottom is because that I want to play so light that really half the time it's almost like a reverse cigar, I'm only using my three fingers. With traditional wood sticks you can call me 'butterfinger smurf' - I've always dropped sticks... I tried gloves once but gloves are more for power drumming. I was like man, I really wish there was a way I could have some sort of rubber grip on my sticks but still have them fee light... I also made the stick just a little bit longer. There's sweet spots, on my snare - and sweet spots on my hi hat - that are traditionally not hit... these give me maximum reach without me having to Ginsu my fingers off... I just wanted a lightweight stick, that has ultimate grip, and maximum reach."
