I think you play what feels right for you in any given situation? If I’m only playing (insert signature stick here) because I want to play like someone else, or someone on DW says they’re the best, but I’m working too hard or can barely lift the sticks, it could end up in or exacerbate an injury. I empathise with what @Dr_Watso is saying, the stick itself isn’t the be all and end all; it won’t make you play better if your technique isn’t up to it. If your technique is up to scratch you could probably play with any stick to a decent level. I play VF STL’s but it doesn’t magically give me Thomas Lang’s hands!
