Neil Peart's by Pro-Mark - I love 'em. Even if they didn't have a perfect weight, length and feel I'd STILL use them forever because they are the longest lasting sticks I've ever used. Only on my second set and I started using them 6-7 months ago.
This coming from someone who was going through 2 sticks a month. One stick in 6+ months playing and the stick I replaced it with last month still looks new means I didn't just get lucky w/the first two.
i use zildjian absolute rock, the double butt ones, with red vater grip tape, they last long, and pull a fat sound from my drums. i've been considering trying the morgan rose double butt sticks, has anybody tried those and if so are they better than the absolute rock ones?
