Promark / Forward 5B Drumsticks / FireGrain
Promark's uses their heaviest wood to add strength to FireGrain sticks, and a flame-tempering process that hardens the outer lacquer and delays chipping. It's similar to the process used on baseball bats and axe handles. These sticks also look incredible.
Their Forward 5B has a .595 Diameter with a Forward taper and an acorn tip.
Promark’s Forward Drumsticks feature a 2.25" taper designed to optimize power and speed.
