Consistent Service Life


I finally found a drumstick with a consistent service life. With wood sticks, as the wood chips and splingters along the shank, the bounce and feel of the stick changes and often breaks without notice. With aluminum sticks, you just have to replaced the sleeves & tips (at less tha half the price of wood sticks) and they should last forever. Get a spare set in case you drop one at a gig and you're ready to play for a long time without replacement. They are also very well balanced when your hands are at the butt end of the stick, which yields a fast response. And finally, the aluminum weight gives a full, solid and crisp sound on the drums...perfect.

They are almost perfect


These sticks are really amazing.i had them for about a year until they finally broke because i forgot that you cant bang them on things hard like the rim of the drums i did that and the Aluminum in the center broke in half.So these are truly amazing with its speed and handling i would recommend getting the grip if your hands sweat.

pretty good sticks


these are a pretty good pair of sticks. my only complaint is that for what i expected mine broke way to quickly mine lasted for about 2 pairs worth so about 2 and a half months for me could have been me playing a lot(play for several hours a day)but other than that i dont have any complaint they were some great sticks while they lasted but im gonna stick with normal wood ones now cause i can have 2 pairs of wood sticks for cheaper and have them last about the same amount of time

The best [...] sticks ever


"These sticks are the best sticks i ever used. you dont get tired at all and the speed of the sticks is unbelieveable. Pefect balance last long and still have that classiccrisp sound. Im 13 playing drums for three years ive gone thru zildjian that give u harsh blisters, vicfirths that are great until u chip them up ive broken 4 of them in a 2 months and the 5a aluminum ahead sticks are great i recommend u buy these sticks if ur a agressive player. I was playing jimi hendrix fire and was suprized of how these sticks handled it. It made playing feel like ur floating on air. So buy these stick great price and totally replaceble."
