Satisfied drummers love how they can play accurately and dynamically while keeping the volume low. They are also happy with the taper, with a thick grip yet light overall weight.
There are a few who caution that these sticks break easily, but this is more of a physical limitation of design, they're not really meant for hard hitters.
Here's a great set of sticks to have for musical styles and situations where articulation and accuracy are more important than volume.
