Not to sound "anal" or anything but..if it was me..I'd get all three. If you can afford it, that's what I'd do. Otherwise..I dunno, good question.
Take care,

I would just recomend you to try wood sticks. The Ahead sticks can really jam your wrist joints, plus the rebound in those sticks suck, compared to real wood.

you must buy a medium taper or a WST Wood Tone.


NO other cover is compatible with that stick.

i actually switched to ahead because wood sticks were hurting my joints.

ahead sticks absorb heaps of the shock and vibration. so for a drummer like me that spends a lot of time hitting hard rubber electronic pads, they really save my wrists.

I would never use aheads on acoustic drums though.. shock and vibration isnt a real problem there. and plus... ahead sticks tend to bring out terrible drum sounds.

I think the durability of them is great, but the sound...not so good. I think in a live setting, they're ok, no one would know. I have a pair and use them occasionally, but I still prefer wood. To each their own. Try 'em, and enjoy 'em. Take care,

I've never really heard of the "shock" that comes from hitting a pad / head actually giving anyone any joint aches. I'm not doubting the authenticity of the statement, I'm just saying that it sounds unusual.

check the plastic cover...usually at the bottom there is a letter designation (mine are LT). Hope that helps.

Also, if you have trouble removing or placing them on, use a hair dryer. it will expand the plastic temporarily, and you won't have gouges like I did (I used a C-Clamp and pliers. Note to self: read the directions.)

I used to put the plastic covers in the
oven for a min before placing them on
the sticks...

I say long live wooden sticks! Booh alloy!
