Comments about Zildjian Backbeat Purple Dip Drumsticks - 1 Pair:
I have a huge problem with sticks flying out of my hands. I had tried about 10 different brands and sizes and these purple dip sticks have drastically cut down on the stick flinging. I love the weight and balance of the sticks as well. I get the 2B plastic tip. They don't seem to shred as easily as the Vater and Firth sticks I was using but that is hard to evaluate because of differences in cymbal hitting from one month to the next, depending on what style of music I'm concentrating on.
