Im currently using the Standard Iron Cobra beaters, but they aren't doing it for me anymore. Ive been trying to find a better that adds way more punch to the kick, so far I've narrowed it down to danmar wood beaters or the DW Hardcore beaters. If any of you use these or recommend others please let me know how they are, thanks.

Maybe its the question of the heads and the patches you use?
Gibraltar wood beaters are ok. Iron Cobras wood beater are not good.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.

My all time favourite beaters are those sold by Danmar. I really think they are superb.

Your beaters are the funniest things I have ever seen (concerning drums of course) !!!
I'd love to check one but unfortunately, they're completely unavailable here....

I bet it'll be less than you think, but I guess it depends on how much you'd like to spend on a hand made BD beater that is precision balanced and adds tons of extra power to your playing with virtually no change in playing style?

Shipping for a beater UK>Poland would be no more than 8 Zlotych.

it seems to be impossible 2 Euros !? It isn't even that cheap for parcels inside the country...On the other hand, the rubber/plastic beater in my Cobra is getting worn off so fast after I sticked the Falam Slam....

That's one beater via airmail, around GB£2, so it would be about EU2.80.
