Insufficient Front-End Weight

26.08.2016
I bought these together with the Vic Firth 3A. In terms of the "forward throwing" feel, the 3A was much better, presumably due to the short taper, bigger tips and a greater length. If you need to "feel" the sticks in your hands, these Pro Marks wouldn't be it.

It was worth a try

This is the first time that I write a rating, actually stupid, because I'm doing because I'm the first time unzufrienden, and right away, thomann has nothing to do with it certainly as always the goods came quickly and reliably :)
I have always vic firth user and play a 55A, so I thought there Promark advertises that you can now choose whether the stock head or "tail" is heavy, I try both versions from time to time. I know I am a nerd, but the thickness of the stock is enormously important to me and I am after years at 55A landed 0.580 landed. this is printed on both promark couples on the forward and the rebound. only fact is, the forward is 0.570 thick and the rebound is 0.590, so it's hard to compare now if you're a forward or rebound guy. quite apart from the fact that the diameter is not correct for any of the two types and each one of the couple is crooked like ne banana, both types are more forward than vicfirth's 55A, at least where I got them. I know it is wood and I had maybe bad luck. no I get no money from vicfirth I'm not an endorser but that the sticks are as thick as it says I would have expected. and even more the more forward (top-heavy) the stock is the more rebound !!!! this is physics so what's the name ???? Conclusion: I stay with my vicfirth, because I get something on it and on the pool they sound even more beautiful
