(also, id rather go with skinnier sticks than bulky ones, they feel better and i play better single rolls with them)
I weigh about 190lbs. and I hit hard enough that I can be heard from over two blocks away when I'm practicing, but I haven't broken any sticks, yet. I think, like some of the others have written, that you need to examine your technique.
