Powerful but still light enough

28.03.2017
Thick, powerful sticks, but yet light enough to maintain speed, while still getting the most powerful sound. Nice smooth finish, as always with VF sticks, you get a near perfectly balanced set and excellent "feel". Been using this brand for 15 years, and they are always up to par.

As advertised, great middle ground between 5A and 5B

Konstantinos A., 15.01.2016
Great sticks if you want some more power than what you get with a 5A, but 5B is too much for the application.

I really wish they would come out with a nylon tip as well, because I tend to break them, plus I like the nylon tip sound better on cymbals.
(My ideal stick would probably be an Extreme 55A made by Oak for more durability, Nylon and Wooden tip versions, but that may be too much to ask :P)
