I guess I'm weird then. I really dislike those sticks. Vic Firth Lacquered sticks are the only sticks that give me blisters. I also dislike the stick weight. I feel like I really have to work to get a stroke out of it. A little bit like the stick is working against me. Hard to explain. Also Vic's tips split more than any other brand for me but then again what do I know.
Does anyone know anything about the American Classic 5A wood tip sticks?
Because it isn't the most sold stick ever :-P
