Re: Vic Firth Nova sticks?
I bought a brick of Nova 2 years ago, 5A, and one of them was warped. The other 23 were just fine. I bought nylon tipped sticks and they are fine. It doesn't take much not to meet the first standards and be selected as seconds.
What Fiery has seen must have been bad news. Mine were fine.
