I picked up a pair of these sticks from the discount bin at my local shop and threw them in the stick bag for spares. But after playing them a little I quickly realized I loved them and I've switched exclusively to this stick! I just ordered up some more online here so they will before my next gig. This has the best all around feel and sound of any stick I have used. They are right when they describe the extra long barrel taper as giving better rim shot response. It may not play as well for everyone, but for me, it fits like a glove.
