Re: Durable stick sugestions. Please help.
I use Vicfirth Metal-N sticks. they're longer than the extreme and look like giant matchsticks. I like the nylon tips since they can't split and scratch the coatings on my snare and toms. Two pairs will last me a month playing an hour to 2 a day average. They're heavy sticks and the extra length will make your hi hats chew into them pretty fast. I don't think durability should be the main concern when choosing sticks. I think whatever you find most comfortable should be the stick you use since it will help you play your best.
