Default Heads for metalcore/hardcore drumming?

I've been looking for some new heads for metalcore or hardcore drumming. I've looked at the G1s but not sure about getting them because of the durability.

I definitely wouldn't recommend a single-ply head like the G1 for metalcore/hardcore drumming. A G2 or EC2 would be better suited for heavier playing.

Go G2 clear. They're the industry standard for a reason.

From livest to deadest: G2, EC2, Hydraulic. Have at it!

Coated G2's with a moongel give big punch, big tone, big punch but the muffling required for the style.

EC2's with no moongel gives the same sort of sound, but i find with a bit less resonance.

Hydraulics with no muffling have pretty much no resonance/sustain. Not very good with un-miced (unless inside a small room) because of the lack of sustain.

Coated G2 Batter
Clear G1 Resonant
Punchy, Durable, and with a Moongel on it provides shorter decay.
Cheers
