- Great Stick!

The 9A maple is a very good all around drum stick. I use this stick for pop, rock, and jazz. The small barrel tip produces good definition and the maple sticks seem to hold up better than the hickory sticks. I find that I can use the maple sticks longer before pieces of the barrel start to fall off and diminish the stick definition on cymbals.
I have used a wide variety of sticks from many manufacturers and I find that the Regal Tip finish really does improve grip as the sticks warm up. If you like a medium length, medium diameter stick with a slightly lighter tip, give these a try. You won't be disappointed.
Regarding the rating, The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because out of the 6 pairs of sticks I ordered, one pair was warped enough to be un-usable. Please note however, that this is very unusual. I have purchased these sticks in retail stores and very, very rarely found a warped stick. That is why I took a chance and bought 6 pairs online. So, for the most part, I am very pleased with the product and the service.
