Don't know how much you'd expect out of this kind of mallet, but for a given price it does what it should. Besides, I used it in almost improper way, which includes hitting the wooden part to the rim in order to get little percussive sounds, which is not the healthiest thing to do if you want mallet to last. Even so I could play it this way for around two months rehearsing and playing gigs too.
All in all - durability in low price worth 5 of 5 for low level "player" like me.
