Easy to play, light, responsive. You can't do big dynamics with them though. they sound good on hats and snare, but pretty bad on toms and cymbals. I find it really hard to lead on ride cymbals because the volume they produce is really low (I have the 18" and 22" AAX omni).
The two red bands that hold each rod together slip easily after playing them for a while. If you are more of a hard hitter and you naturally swing your hands more you will often find yourself looking for these red bands on the floor around the kit.
The quality of the rods is good, I thought they would shatter easily, but they are holding up quite well after several months of usage. they chip on the top edges a bit, but that is well expected.
Overall, I would say, if you haven't played with rods and you want to buy a cheap pair for the first time, these are a good starting point. Also, if you don't often have to play quiet gigs, you can rely on these.
