Promark's Forward 5A Drum Sticks have the same thickness as the industry's standard 5A sticks, the most popular size for rock drummers everywhere. Made of very durable hickory, they'll last you quite a while.

The acorn tips on the ends of these sticks give you a wider "sweet spot" than a teardrop shape, creating more articulation and responsiveness.

The 2.25" taper on this pair of sticks puts more of the weight towards the front and gives you a forward-throwing feel with every swing (and more sound!). A thicker neck also helps increase longevity against rimshots.

A thin coating of ActiveGrip becomes tackier as your hands sweat from exercise and stage lights, keeping your sticks from slipping out in the middle of a performance. It won't tear up your hands, and it doesn't add any noticeable weight or thickness. It won't get on your cymbals or rims, either.

I have had some trouble finding some good sticks that add grip, but that also don't hurt my hands. I've tried wrapping normal sticks, as well as using other rubber gripped sticks. Both of those options burned my fingers after playing for a while. These Promarks have been working well because the grip has just the right amount of tackiness. The pivot point can still move freely, which means there isn't as much friction. I've found it much easier to hold onto these while playing and they are quite comfortable. The only thing to keep in mind is that the finish can get chewed up pretty quickly.
