    Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

    I enjoyed these sticks, it improved my speed because of the grips. I also enjoy the fact that it's about a half an inch longer than 5a's. Bought two pair, I am upset however that one stick broke after only hitting the snare about 10 times. Must have been a bad stick because the others are holding up just fine

      Great sticks

      By gene

      from Wilson NC

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

      I tried the Vic Firth X5A sticks with the Vic Grip ends and really like the extra length they provide. I like the feel of the Vic Grip also. For the price, they are worth a try. I'll get a few more myself.

      The BEST

      By Angela Collins

      from Schofield, Wisconsin

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

      I have always trusted Vic Firth for my sticks. I use the 5B Nylon tip, and I was blown away by the sound these stick give. They hit my tom heads and give them a nice punch. My ride gets a nice bright tone. Plus the 5B is great for the strength and thickness. Best stick by far.

      stick quality

      By Adrian

      from San Jose, CA

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

      I've gotten these sticks a few weeks ago then I liked the grip made me play faster than before and more rebound. I've gotten nylon 5b. What I don't like is that when my hands get sweaty the sticks easily slides off my hands. One of my sticks already broke from the tip after few weeks of playing. I was disappointed. My previous drumsticks were Vater hickory nylon 5b which lasted me three months and these drumsticks lasted me two weeks. Maybe they were the bad pair though.

      Best I've found yet.

      By Bryan

      from Lapeer Michigan

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

      I've been playing drums for about 2 months now and already have around a dozen pairs of different sticks I will never use again. These sticks are great. The grip isn't super sticky but is just right. Sticks also have a great rebound and a perfect feel for me. I knew I was hooked the first time I used them. Try em, you'll love em.
