I swear by this head on my 14 x 5 custom snare.
I used this head for 3 years on a second snare without it going through and I'm a VERY HARD hitter, it lost bait of life after a year but as it wasn't in constant use i didn't feel it was enough to warrant replacing.
On my main snare i crank this up tight and get a lot of attack and crack out of this head.
The only issue I've ever had with this is that when tightened too high the reverse dot can start to peel off under the tension. Despite this for most normal users this would not be a problem!
100% recommend this head for any snare drum user for use in any genre!
