Well yeah i guess i do play pretty hard but my orion hats are seriously cracked now, i actually took a huge chunk out of them just so my sticks wouldn't get chewed up in the crack and the thing bent by hand. Compare that to a zildjian ZBT which did crack very badly but i needed a set of shears to cut through it.
