Used to be good

I've been a huge fan of these sticks for a very long time as I never understood how people felt ok to pay 10€ for a pair of sticks and these were fine and lasted just as long as others.

However, I don't know if there has been a dip in quality but recently I've been smashing 2-3 of these per rehearsal. I don't think my playing style has changed yet these sticks don't seem up to the task anymore.
