I personally prefer these to the Vic Firth hot rods, even though there is a high price difference. I have used them both in small jazz ensembles and in a production of Miss Saigon. I had great fun using these on a wood block in 'The American Dream', because they have a great bounce.
They are easily adjustable so there is great versatility in the sound you make. For build quality and general usefulness they are definitely a good buy, I don't know why they are so cheap!
I've tried a lot of different rods over the years, and I guess my main complain for most would be their poor durability. This is a problem I've encountered with premium brands! However I have to say the relatively low cost Millenium product has proven to be superb. They have a full and solid shaft where you hold the stick, which is greatr as it gives the feel of a conventional drum stick, but then the rods must be of a very high quality or durable wood, as they last four times as long as other products I've tried. I also really like the rod adjusted (the black band around the rods) which again is much more substantial and reliable than the typical rubber band you see on other products. Never once have I need to make running repairs with gaffa tape on these rods...
