Default Re: Zildjian stick quality improved since Vic Firth merger?

So I've started wearing through these sticks and as I do get into them, I'm noticing that they are a little more hardy than past Zildjians, but still seem a bit softer than Vics. So the jury is out until I either buy some more sticks or abandon the experiment altogether.

However, I just picked up a set of Ahead Rock sticks that I've had for a while and suddenly found a sweet fulcrum spot on them (quite different from my usual gripping point). Suddenly they came alive to me. I may be off of wood sticks for a nonce.
