Re: Breaking sticks left and right...
Your solution if you like VF 5B and find the Vater 5B's too heavy. Vater Chad smith Funk Blasters. I Bought a batch of the Vater 5B's recently. They have been lasting much longer that the VF 5B, admittedly they are a bit heavier but they feel nice, I go through a pair every 3-4 sittings.
