I play in a rock/metal band and I'm a very hard hitter. After years of using 2B or 5A sticks because they lasted well and put up with the abuse, I tried out these "for a laugh". I wasn't laughing long because although they felt like pencils to begin with, I could play that extra 5% faster because (plain, simple physics) they are lighter. The piston in an F1 racing engine is very light so it can go up and down at ridiculous speeds - same applies here. You can accelerate these sticks much faster and consequently they'll hit the head going faster for a given force than a heavier stick. It works.

Now - there's no denying that these don't last as long as a pair of 2B's but in all honesty, I've broken those in less than an hour from new as well so I figured if these lasted 45 minutes into the set but allowed me to play faster licks, it was money well spent. Now I don't bother with the heavier sticks - I just find them cumbersome and just order these by the dozen and if one breaks, I reach for another. So no - these won't last as long as a heavier stick (duh!) but for the time that you do have them - you'll be able to have more dynamics and play that little bit faster and to me that is more important. Each to their own though!

Switched to Vic Firth sticks from Zildjian's and these are much nicer to play with and far sturdier. Will definitely be using more of these from now on. Another bonus is that lots of online lesson videos use Vic Firth sticks so you can see exactly where they are holding the sticks and match your grip up accordingly.

Brilliant sticks for anyone wanting the 7a size with a little more length. Good balance and feel, and a decent weight for their size. The hickory has a good grip to it.

Strongly recommend to any sort of drummer looking for an all round stick.

I was recommended to try lighter sticks. The Vic Firth 7A Hickory Wood Tip have been excellent, good feel and balance.

Over the years I have played with many sticks in different woods/tips from different makers. I always come back to Vic Firth. Balanced, well made, straight and they stay straight (unless you do something stupid with them).
I use 7A's and 5A's for most of what I do and I highly recommend these sticks.

Vic Firth seem to be quality sticks which are as good or better than other brands, not had any problems with them so far. I like a light stick so the 7A seems just right for me, no problem playing soft or hard. I've tried the jazz stick but it seems a bit too light feel for what I'm doing - blues, soul, pop/rock.

These sticks are comfortable to use, cheap for a good pear and quite tough (if you use them right.) obviously the start wearing away but all sticks do that but these will last much longer, These sticks in turn I would recommend to all drummers who are looking for reliability in playing and drummers who don't bash their drum kits like a baseball bat to a car window.

I definitely recommend them as they are a well known brand and very trustworthy on their make.

I bought this stick as a recommendation from a friend who is also a fairly heavy hitting drummer like my self, I used them in a practice once before playing a gig. I am in a Punk/Ska cover band so the volume is going to be loud naturally, I was in the middle of the 3nd song of the first set and the stick I was hitting the snare with snapped clean in half a full clean break and that was the end of that. The sticks are hardly marked, I also bought a pair of Vater 7A's and they did the exactly same thing in the song before. This really shocked me as nothing like this has ever happend before.

Overall the stick felt good and solid
