Default Re: Pro-Mark change?

As I don't own a gram scale the numbers I used are just examples.

however the fact stays the same that sticks are matched in a pair withing 1 or 2 grams of one another and have a plus or minus weight of 10 grams. You wouldn't think so but something as small as 2-3 grams is a huge difference. If you held two sticks, one that was 20 grams lighter than the other it would be like a 7A vs. a marching stick even though they are the same model.

Sometimes shipments of wood come though the factories that maybe has more lighter or heavier wood in it. That means whole batches of sticks can end up on the light or heavy side. It's not ideal, but when dealing with an organic material it happens.
