You don't have to be fussy to know that some of the 'cheap' heads are worse than others, even the supposedly non-critical snare side.
I always give the heads a chance, but I'm also prepared to make a quick change if necessary. When I take my new SupraLite 5x15" on a gig, I will have either changed the heads already, or will bring fresh 15" batter & snare sides with so I can change between sets if needed. Nothing worse than the batter constantly softening/denting as you play.
