Default Re: Pitch-matched sticks - How critical is it?

I do believe pitch matched sticks are a good idea (if I'm playing on a pad or a ride cymbal I can often here the difference in sound between two non-matched sticks) but I trust the stick manufacturers to match the sticks for me. I don't try every stick in the store to find a match. I think the stick companies, in my case Vater, do a good job tone-matching the sticks.
I think weight and banana-ness is more important to check yourself...
