Nope. All I play are round tips, I hit hard...very hard. I do not have dents in my heads.

(sticks are either Vater Fusion or Ahead 5B with huge round tips)
(heads are Aquarian Studio-X coated w/dot)

A lot of times dents in the heads can be caused due to too steep of tom angle for your seat height.

I had some problems with dents in my early days. Someone suggested checking my angles but it was the snare head that was dented, so i don`t have any clue.
I still have some round-tipped sticks but they are very heavy and thick and i don`t like their sound on the cymbals so i don`t use them anyways. I only use them for warm-up or such things, being heavy is an advantage, i can then pick up my actual sticks and i literally FLY!

I don't dent heads and I have played every style of tip there is. Maybe your drums or your technique need some aid.

I don't dent heads but I would imagine it's a combination of the drum head used, it's tensioning, the angle of the particular drum to the stick and the amount of force the sticks make upon contact of the head. A part of this comes from the drummer's technique and set-up of the kit.

Not for me at least, I use Vic Firth SD1 and SD2 with round tips, no problems, in the past I used Pro-Mark 3A and Pro-Mark 707, both with round tips, no problems either :))
