Please provide a review of how that affected your grip when you next used those sticks on the kit!
These were throwaway sticks that came with my DTX Multi-12 - super cheap, warped beginner sticks. They actually had a bend in them!
Funny thing is I was thinking of creating a thread asking what everybody did with "orphan" sticks or sticks they no longer used. I'm willing to bet that, if it included a poll, paint stirrers would win hands-down.
Another common use in my household is helping to hold up house plants that are starting to bend over. A couple of pairs even helped hold up a tomato trellis this summer.
Man, what you doing.... 7a’s for stirring paint.. Everyone knows that..
I used the 7As when we painted the other bedroom 🤣

I wonder how many toothpicks you can get from an old pair of sticks. I bet Rain man Raymond Babbitt could tell us. I bet we could turn them into pencils-we won't even need to get the Led out LOL.

I feel like this is the new most GetAgrippa post ever. An obscure Rain Man reference? Dude. Not sure you can top it. Lol
