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

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.

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.

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

I bought these maybe 7 years ago when I got my first drum set. The sticks were really good, the sound quality was amazing and the weight was great as well. However, after a few months, I noticed that the rubber had started melting. This may be because I live in the sauna that is Florida, or the fact that when I play, I become a sweat bath. This was not too bad, it just left some red on your hands. I bought a few more pairs, but I would not recommending buying multiple pairs at a time. I bought 1-2 pairs at a time, and waited until the fist pair started melting (which takes a long time, so don't let that stop you from buying this), and then bought another pair, and just repeated that. I have only had to buy 7 pairs since then, so I think that they have done a good job.

    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

      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.
