Re: Zildjian stick quality improved since Vic Firth merger?
Tried them once again recently and still unhappy with them. grrrrr.
I do like their standard wood tip Rock model.
Always did, and would occasionally go back and "try them" to see if it was better and improved - and again, too inconsistent and early breakage, so Ive stayed with ProMark Oak sticks, which are just a better fit for me.
