hello guys,

how durable are actually these sticks? i have played last night with one pair of these sticks and I absolutely love the feeling, the weight and the power. BUT, they are maple.

Maple breaks pretty easy. Granted it feels comfortable because it's light, but it does not hold up like Oak or Hickory.
I brought home a pair of Maples from DRT and they broke clean, like you snapped them in half, as opposed to the "with the grain" breaks you traditionally see.

even though I play some power/alternative metal stuff..I am not a hard-hitting person. I'll give them a try :)
