I cannot share some the negative comments by some people. Even expensive sticks breaks now and then the first time you hit a cymbal, the ride bell or snare rim. I tried my first pair of VF Nova on a pretty intensive gig: not a broken stick and not more wear than I would expect from a regular 5A. The feel is slightly different when compared the the regular 5A, balance is a bit different, but nothing I can't get used to and not worse or better. Try them and save a dime!
Edit: ...after extensive usage I must revise my positive statement, I seem to have been very lucky with the first batch I ordered, the six oder seven pairs I ordered this year broke very easily when the music got a little louder and a little more aggressive, sorry but no more Novas for me....
Useful for bringing your order up to the free postage limit. Cheaper than in my local drum shop, though they do unbranded Vic Firth sticks loose for a good price the weights are all over the place trying to find a pair. I find some of the Millenium sticks to be superior value for money compared to the Nova and with Nova sticks you sometimes want to view them to make sure you aren't buying ones with awful grain and balance.
