These sticks are awsome. I Own A ton of sticks and these are my favorites. I own a pair of 5B's and 5A's, they're light reliable, reletively hard to break. the sound is amazing especially with the 5A's. They're perfect for fast accurate playing. The only fault, they're a little slick when wet.

Well I go through a pair of wooden sticks in a day which is pretty expensive and I saw these so I got 2 pairs. I started playing with them as soon as I got them and they are deffinately durable but they made my snare drum quiet and puttery but when I use wooden sticks it sound beefy and well amazing. Durable but they dont make all your drums sound amazing.

NOT WHAT THEY USED TO BE!!!

By Beatgrinder

from Colorado

Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

I have used these sticks since 1999 and they used to work very well and last 10 times longer than wood sticks. Unfortunately it seems they have changed the way they are manufactured. Initially they would last for several weeks of playing (2 to 3 times per week). Now they break after only a few minutes of playing time. I can get through a couple of songs before the end breaks off of the stick, whereas I used to get at least a couple of weeks out of them. Very disappointing..

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I had high hopes for these sticks since I play hard, but don't like big sticks. I go through a lot of Pro-Mark oak 747s.
      These sticks feel nice - they are a bit more flexible than wood sticks but I liked the feel. Two practices in, and I broke one stick about an inch from the tip (they are hollow - how about that!)
      So I guess I'll use up the two pairs I bought and go back to the regular ol' wood sticks.

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      These sticks last forever, and have a real nice feal to them. I did have to take some sandpaper to the grip ends to increase grip, they where a little too smooth but other than that, great sticks. They are a bit heavy, but that helps to really bring out the tone of the drum. At first did not like the weight, but after playing a couple of sets, I love how they make my drums sound. A++++

      Longer Lasting

      By Robert Gaines

      from Bay Area

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I like these sticks because, for me, they last a lot longer than wooden sticks do and they also have a nice bounce off the head. Their only drawback is that they make your drums sound different than wooden sticks, so, you will need to retune your set to these or any sticks made of this sort of material. I need to retune my drums a bit lower and open up the dynamics a bit to achieve a similar sound as I get using wooden sticks of comparable size. Its like if you are playing an accoustic guitar and you switch from a medium pick to a thin.

      X-10 Rock

      By Shane Balkcom

      from Michigan

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I bought these to see if they would hold up to my playing style; hard. I've used them for about 6 hours of playing. They do create more vibrations with everything they are connected; i.e., hands. One thing I've noticed is that after about 10 mins, I think due to warming up, they "feel" floppy. I'm used to Aheads. With Aheads, floppy is not good. It equals broken. A bit disconcerting. However, they are not broken. They are lighter than what I'm used to playing, but I think I can adapt. They sound good on the cymbals as another reviewer has stated. I have a Zildjian Projection Crash that I think could break the sticks. So far, they've held up. I wish that MF would sell the grips for them. I bought another pair that has them from another vendor. They add balance to the stick and are reusable. Overall, I like them. In the long run, they'll be cheaper.
      And something for those who play hard, if you break these, play the stick in your hand and not the one in your head. I have been using Aheads for close to 8 yrs. I've broken every single one. Why? Because It's easier to play hard with them. How many sticks/heads/cymbals have we destroyed because of our style? Stop blaming the stick/head/cymbal. It's the player.

      Durable but not functional

      By Eva Hess

      from CA

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      dont buy unless you dont care about the way your drums sound or unless you use an electronic kit
      these stick do something that deadens the sound of the drum. I'm not sure what it is but a drum hit with one of these sounds drastically different (in a bad way) than the same drum hit with a wood stick.
      even though they dont work well, they are still extremely durable as stated

      Have been using these sticks since 1987

      By Jeff M

      from Springboro OH

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I've been using these sticks since 1987. I have all available sizes and still have my original 5b's purchased in 1987. That is how durable these sticks are. I have been in and out of bands, recording studios, etc and highly recommend these if you are looking for a nearly indestructible stick. They are safe for cymbals. I was worried about that at first since the sticks are composite. No problems. Music I have played is EVERYTHING. From Metallica to blues - jazz -swing - classic rock - hair band rock - country - contemporary Christian, the sticks perform. This review is from a professional musician.

      Have used the same pair for months

      By Mackbd

      from Watertown, SD

      Comments about Aquarian formula X-10 Rock Drumsticks:

      I'm gonna come right and say it...I play heavy. These sticks have taken everything i've thrown at them. I literally can not break these. Trust me, i've tried.I took a well-worn size 5A stick outside, and smashed it hard against the pavement, with all of my might, dozens of times. It would not be broken, and was barely dented at the tip.- The volume produced between the drum heads vs. the cymbals is pretty even, one doesn't overwhelm the other.- The tone produced between being used on the drum heads and cymbals seems very mid-range.- Switching to any other wooden stick, the immediately realized how much lighter the aquarians were in comparison
