Default When Drumsticks Break

Just out of curiosity, do you guys test your drumsticks before purchasing? The drum salesman in Guitar Center said to roll them on a counter and he showed me how when one wobbles to not buy it. He also demonstrated to hold them up together to make sure their isn't any space between them up to a certain point on the stick.

My Vic Firth 7A snapped today at the bottom leading up towards shaft. Replaced tonight with same pair. Will have to get in one of those multi-stick deals.
