I still believe the key to breaking as few sticks as possible is developping the right hitting-technique.
After a while It took 2-3 months after I broke VF 5A's instead of 2-3 weeks.
My current problem though, is that the tip of the tips easily breaks, Then offcourse you have to put them away, as you don't want to damage tour heads at the same time...
irritating, going to try out some other brands.
