When stick companies advertise that there sticks weigh EXACTLY the same, I always wonder, does that really matter?? I mean the first time I use them the sticks are all chipped up anyways, so why take the time to sort them by weight.

Of course, it does matters. As what they said, your left hand should be the same with your right hand. If you do "ghost notes" this is very important aspect of the stick. When you do those rolls, this is also important. I think, not only on sticks, remember on double pedals, slave pedal feel, response and attack should be the same (or almost the same) with the master.

xXx is right. If you have a heavier stick or slave pedal to your left hand/foot it's gonna be hard to do ghost notes and fast rolls with those.

Yea........but after 30 mins. of playing your sticks (or mine atleast) are going to be all chewed up and dented so the weight isn't the same already.
