I just don't get this. They're drum sticks. I beat the crap out of my drums with them. Have been doing it for well over a decade. I've used the crème of the crop sticks but have been using various "seconds" for several years now, be it the Vater "Goodwood" seconds, the Novas, or these Pro Mark seconds that I am using currently.
I can't really tell any difference it's made on my playing. My wallet, on the other hand, is much better off.
