Noc, I'm not sure you have to be that hard a hitter by rock standards to break 7As. When I was playing rock I always used 5As ... whenever I used 7As they felt a bit fragile, and I'm sure I wasn't hitting as hard as some of you brawny lads.

These days I use Zildjian Bill Stewart signature 7As and I don't need to test them because the CQ seems pretty good. I only have to replace them when the wood tip softens enough to lose its zing on the ride.
