Re: Fiberglass drumsticks
When I was only a couple years into drumming, I constantly broke sticks due to heavy repeated rim shots. I found a pair of sticks by a company called Mainline that were a mixture of some wood and fibreglass ( they were pink in color ). They were by far the most durable sticks I ever played. I was breaking hickory sticks on a daily baises, but getting one year out of those mainline sticks was more than impressive. I went to the local drum store where I originally purchased them, only to find that they didn't carry them anymore. Actually, the salesman didn't know what I was talking about. He said that he had never seen any mainline sticks there before. I wish I had a pair right now. ( of those sticks, that is ).
