Default Whats your take on birch sticks?

I picked up some mike mangini laminated birch sticks, dont know why, but they intrigued me and I figured i'd give them a shot. But after playing with them, I've noticed they're very hard, so I was worried about them potentially having the "Ahead" effect on my cymbals. what do you guys think?

Unless you hit really hard with large-size sticks and your cymbals are really thin or a low-end alloy, you aren't going to have problems. I think I remember playing birch sticks years ago, but I couldn't begin to tell you what brand they were.

I frequently use Zildjian's "Heavy Jazz" sticks, they're made of laminated birch. They have a nice weight, they're 16" in length, sound great on cymbals and hold up very well.
