Default Hornet drum sticks. Forgot to search, sorry

http://www.animalcustomdrums.co.uk/hornet.htm

Has anyone got a pair, they aren't much more than normal sticks and they seem to have a few decent features.
Does aynone reckon that they are just a gimick which looks good, and I wonder if the curve in the stick changes the feel of them compared to standard sticks.

Cheers,

Tom

ive never used them but if you use the search function you can find that there are a couple of threads already on these.

its always better to check first.
some people get pretty mad at the repeating threads.

A friend of mine let me try his Hornets a few weeks ago. I liked them because they had excellent balance in my hands; and they worked great even with traditional grip. The butt ends of the sticks can be used as mallets for a really nice sound on the cymbals. I did notice that one of the rubber rings was missing from one of the sticks, so I am not sure about the durability of using them regularly as mallets. I personally won't be using Hornets. They aren't available in my area and can only be ordered online. They also cost too much and only come with wood tips...no nylon.
