    • I love the control and precision the short taper offers. The stick is the perfect diameter, and the length is surprisingly balanced. They took a while to get used to, but I'm never going shorter than 17 again.

    • Very good sticks. Ordered right as they came out after seeing the promo video earlier, and was not disappointed! Feel very nice in my hands, and I am able to control them pretty well after the initial wearing in. At this moment, they're the only sticks I use when practicing or playing. Brought them to my DCI auditions over the weekend, and they held up well, besides a very prideful wearing down of the logos.
