Honestly mate, I've played 'em all......and they all break, crack or splinter at one point or another.

Stick with any of the major brands for best results.

Might want to check out pro mark chris adler signature sticks. They're 5A weight, but have a beefier taper and bigger tip. They'll break eventually, but they'll last a lot longer than your standard 5A.

My opinion would be any "oak" model from Pro Mark. I've tried them all and always went back to Pro Mark Oak 2b's. Playing style is also a big factor. If your playing heavy stuff oak will outlast hickory. I use Aheads 99 % of the time but when I want to use wood I always go for Pro Marks.

Amen to that and here's one more....

When you're hitting your $250 dollar cymbals with your $8 pair of drumsticks,eventually one of them is going to break. You WANT that to be the $8 drumstick.

I like the Silverfox sticks. So far they're more durable than the Pro Mark Oaks I use, which is 2B...

No doubt about it! That is wood good for, to absorb the hitting impact. Can you imagine hitting the cymbal with an construction reinforce bar, rod?

I've been playing a long time, but I still have no idea what I would classify as being the most durable sticks. Some of the sticks I use are the Zildjian Heavy Jazz sticks. They're made of laminated birch and I've never broken one. They sound great on cymbals too. One of the softest tips I've played was on Hornet sticks. I play sticks from several different companies and most hold up very well for me. I usually kill the shoulders of my sticks way before breaking them.
