I must warn!
I had a few pairs of Carbosticks, I used them for practicing because of the weight and durability (obviously) BUT! After about 9 months I had broken 4 cymbals that I had had for over 10 years and had no existing cracks etc... I am a fairly heavy hitter but I'd never broken anything except a thin K china (and I was playing in a metal band, heavy gigging, at the time) before I used these.
