Re: Vic Firth Legacy Brushes :(
Hmmm, I was really considering the Legacy brushes because I don't like the feel of a rubber handle. Glad I didn't blow $25 on those things.
I had a pair of fairly basic retractable VF brushes years ago and didn't have a problem. Maybe it's just a design flaw. I'll definitely have to test out a few models next time I'm at a decent store.
