Re: anybody hit this hard?
I think I hit harder than anybody I know. I never did rimshots until I took my first lesson w/Bissonette. Have done them ever since. I would say I hit harder than Gregg. I have also worked out for ten years and am stronger than I used to be. Dont know if thats a factor but I did break an Easton plastic stick. I could bend it in the middle. Now what I do is use clear moving or packing tape and and use about an eight inch piece and wrap about a two inch area in the middle. They last about 3-4 times longer.
