I've been using Pro-Mark American Hickory 5A's for a long time. I bought a four pack of sticks the other day, and noticed something peculiar. The sticks felt lighter to me, lighter than I like to play with. I compared one to an older stick, and I could definitely feel a weight difference. Gave them to my wife, and asked her if she noticed anything about them, and she noticed one stick was significantly lighter (she's not a drummer).
I've gone to a few different places and held the same sticks there, and they feel lighter. Anyone play with these sticks and noticed this?
