Default Re: Do maple sticks reduce shock?

They have a lighter feel so when I use them I get the impression that there is less shock.
The problem is that I sometimes hit harder to compensate for the lighter attack and it defeats the purpose. It depends on the music that I am playing.
I find that hickory sticks produce less shock as they age a bit. I often feel shock transfer from a new pair of sticks but it dwindles after a few weeks of play.
I kind of like old drums:)
