    Just wanted to stop and say that Kev, you have been doing a great job with all of this and soon it will be one of the better forums on this...forum. Great job!


    P.S.- I use Pro-Mark Hickory 3A, great sticks. I'd recommend them to anyone. PM me if you want any details!

    To me they are the perfect stick. The only two points I can complain on is 1) there is no warning for when they snap - like Aheads they just go! And 2) they are a little tiny bit heavier, which is odd as carbon in general is usually lighter.

    But to me they are the perfect stick - longevity is longer, they remain rigid and 100% as strong till the end as they did at day one (no "knawed" out section in the middle that weaken like wood sticks) and still have the same wood sound and feel to them. Add in the perfect weight match and they are 100% straight 100% of the time, I just can't find a better stick. for £2 more a pair I think it's worth it.

    The only thing that might beat them might be a FIRBESTICK from the same company - a new half-carbon, half-fibreglass stick they have just brought out. I haven't tried them yet, but allegedly they are the same consistency and durability as the Carbosticks, but are lighter. Will get some in and try them soon Of course I will make a review post for you to link in here Kev

    Vic Firth American Classic Extreme 5A's are by far the best sticks I've used. They are a bit longer than the standard 5a's, and I find they are evenly balanced for me. They typically last about a month for me.

    Might I suggest adding Zildjian Drumsticks to the list??? Zildjian makes a pretty high quality drumstick.
