WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I have been using Collision Sticks for a number of years now and I can honestly say they are the best sticks I have every used (and I have tried many over the years)! I use the 5A reach sticks and often combine this with Collision’s grip tape.
The balance of the sticks is fantastic and they feel great in the hands. Rebound is accurate and true and as for durability these are second to none.
Since joining the collision family (and it really does feel like that), I have been supported and looked after by a great team. It is obvious that they care not only about their products but those artists that use them as well. It is for these reasons that I happily recommend Collision sticks to any drummer.
