The Drum corps grips felt fantastic!!! With the grips, we didn't have to tape the sticks or worry about how we were taping them. These went on fast and easy with no hassle. They really helped me keep hold of my sticks. Regular old sticks tape typically doesn't feel amazing. The drum corp grips on the other hand eliminated all of that. the grip are a product that myself and the pacers high octane drum will stand by for years to come.
