The issue is that every few years, Remo seem to tweak the formula and this always
happens. Every couple of years, a new set of threads arrive complaining about the coating wearing quickly. I do wish Remo would acknowledge the issue. Evanspecialist on here has really done well with questions like this from an Evans point of view and it's great to see a real representative from the company rather than something faceless.
I say this but all my heads are Remo. I've played Evans as well (never been able to get Aquarian here easily) and I just prefer the sound and feel of the Remo heads. I can't quite explain it but it's the way it is. The 'Vintage A' heads are my go-to on snares (hopefully I'll be able to get them again) and I can't think of anything that would substitute it. I've never had a problem with coatings myself but I don't doubt for a second that it happens.
