These are my go-to sticks I use when rehearsing and playing live. They feel great - not too rough or slippery. These sticks are reasonably balanced and the weight is not too light, which I prefer.
From what I have experienced, these sticks are just as durable as higher-priced drumsticks. I have had issues with sticks breaking in the past, which is probably connected to my subpar playing technique. Now although these sticks are quite cheap, they last relatively long compared to other models.
In general, I find these sticks to be the best with regards to their price. I would suggest there is nothing better in this price range.
