RABid Posted February 28, 2021 Share Posted February 28, 2021 A few years ago I was feeling exceptionally rich and did an experiment. Bought 12 pair of sticks, all different sizes, materials and coatings. My goal, find the perfect stick for me. I quickly settled on dipped sticks as I have a tendency to loose sticks while playing. The thing that surprised me is how different the brands are with their dip. If you want to try dipped sticks, and I suggest you do at least try, get multiple brands and see what feels best to you. After much playing I found that I preferred the Zildjain dips. The closest competitor, Vic Firth, became very tacky after heating up in my hands. If I played a full set with these I could see my fingerprints on the stick and would always check my hands to see if they had turned red. Temperature never seemed to affect the Zildjain dips that I bought. Of course, materials may change over time. I bought a good supply 9 years ago and am still using them. So, have you tried dips? Do you like them? Quote This post edited for speling. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
