    • Feel phenomenal. Be sure to get the heaviest pairs possible.

    • When you get the heaviest/most dense pairs of these sticks, they are money in your hands. They can be used for any application and feel fantastic to play on any surface. Despite being .01” or .02” thinner than most marching sticks, they retain the same high density. Make sure you get the most dense pairs and request a high weight rather than pitch. The properly dense pairs will produce a high pitch regardless.

    • good at first!..but later not so much

    • i would had agree on the other comments on how good they were but now after about 3 months of using them ( not even all the time but often) they break easily i had to retape mine so "that' feeling goes away and even though there wood you start to lose your grip while playing faster music/grids especially hi-moms. and i have plenty of other sticks where this isnt the case, even the vic firth scott johnsons i have dont do this. so if your looking for maybe a short time practice sticks then yes. but if not look at a different pair of system blues. this sticks are to light up front all the weight is in the end.not a good deal.

    • these sticks are very nice, a little heavy in the front but are very beefy, makes a lot more sound than other sticks get them!

    • Great Sticks!

    • After buying several pairs of the Vic Firth Ralph Hardimon sticks, I bought this pair just to try out Pro Mark. Let me just say that these are fantastic! They are practically the same height and shape as the Vic Firth Hardimon's. I prefer these, because they have an actual wood feel, vs. the Hardimon's which have a thin coat of paint. If you sweat, the wood of these absorb the sweat, and you always keep a good grip. The paint coat of the Hardimon's make the stick slippery. I LOVE THESE STICKS. I will be using them for this season. Great look. Great feel.

    • Very Nice Sticks!

    • I've been a user of Vic Firth and their Corpsmasters/Signature series for many years and just recently I decided to try out ScoJo's Pro-Mark Sticks since he switched over. All I can say is that this was surely a great decision I made. These sticks are really beefy and are pefect to chop out on. They have a great, sustained and heavy sound that all snare drummers would like. The only thing I don't like is the way the atual wood feels, compared to the Corpsmasters. Nonetheless, these are amazing sticks and I suggest getting them!!

    • These are my first Pro Mark corps stick ive bought in a while, and im really happy with them. This is a man's stick, so little hands will feel like their at batting practice. The length is more than im used to, and the sticks wood feels really dry and rigid (i know, "thats what she said"). Excellent sounding rimshots especially paired with a Yamaha sFz's trademark crack. I wasnt sure about these at first but am now on my third pair. The beefed up quality of this stick was a turn off at first but has been surprisingly agile and solid. Love em'

    • Excellent feel, just the right about of rebound, great wood quality well matched. Leaps and bounds better than the Vic Firth MS5.

    • The Hickory and stick in general has a nice feel. Dynamic range is excellent. Good sound quality when playing. Makes you work a tad bit more for those clean diddles (theres rebound, but not as much as a Ralph Hardimon). Doesnt get beat up quick by rim shots. I dont reccommend these for your first pair of sticks ever...these should be used by players with some experience who are looking for a stick that can give them excellent quality and diddle work.
