Affordable but inconsistent

I'm playing professionally and I've been using these sticks for a while, mainly because they're cheaper. The overall quality is good, but every once in a while you get some really crappy sticks. But I guess, you get what you pay for. After all, I still save a lot of money buying these sticks rather than the "American Classic" or equal.

The playing experience is not substantially affected by the slightly worse quality, while playing rock on a loud kit. However, when used on a practice pad you realize the benefits of piched pairs - which they're not.
