Default Re: Oak sticks - bad for your hand?

I did use Pro Mark Japanese Oak 5Bs a few times a number of years back, but I did indeed notice far more hand and wrist fatigue compared to the hickory sticks I had been using. I think it has a lot more to do with the transfer of energy through the stick, rather than being absorbed by the stick.

That being said, with my far better technique these days, it might be a totally different story.
