WHY DOES DRUMSTICK SIZE MATTER?
The size of your drumsticks matters because it affects how they feel and sound. Thicker, heavier sticks provide more volume and durability, and are the best choice when a lot of projection is needed. Thin, light sticks are easier to handle, and provide more control in situations where finesse is required, like a small ensemble. 5A Drumsticks are an all-rounders dream and have great versatility.

Compared to 5A sticks from other brands, Collision sticks feel strong in the hand and fluid with finesse. Coupled with just that little longer length gives Collision 5A sticks the flexibility to feel at home playing all genres of music

I’ve been using these sticks now for about three months for practice and for gigs. They can not only deliver on durability but also pack a punch and have defiantly given my stage show a edge. Unlike other sticks that ten to splinter around the middle where there used for rimshots, these sticks have only a few dents after two weekenders of gigs as well as a headline show.

I’ve played 5A sticks from so many brands in my career, and I don’t know what to say, I started to believe in magic when I tried Collision drumsticks, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BRAND! thank you for this masterpiece.
Jordan Marsh –
I absolutely love these sticks. They hold up for such a long time and feel really nice and well balanced in your hands. Even compared to other brands it has a smoother finish that still sit comfortably in your hands without losing control. To top it all off they are are solid for the heavy hitter, but also light for more delicate dynamics.

I’ve been playing a mixture of 5A and 5B sticks for 20+ years now. I was on the hunt for something better and I came across the Collision brand. I’m now using the Collision 5A stick, and have been for a while now. I love the feel of the stick, with the extra width and length that these offer over competitor brands. These are the best sticks out there for durability, no one can beat the price and quality of this product. If you dont believe me, try them for yourself, you wont be disappointed!
Ryan Duswalt (verified owner) –
Truly an amazing stick and company. The durability is unmatched to anything I’ve tried. Definitely will be using these for now on. You just have to try them out!

I have been using Collision 5A drumsticks for a long time and they are the most durable sticks I’ve ever played. In the 20+ years I’ve been playing music, I’ve tried all of the brands out there and Collision is definitely leading the charge in quality, durability, and customer service. I can’t say enough good things about these sticks and I encourage everyone to grab a few pairs and try them out themsevles!
George Abrehart (verified owner) –
I have used the Collision 5A standard, and they are brilliant sticks. Firstly they are by far the most durable sticks I’ve used (I have played Vic Firth and Promark, neither of which lasted half as long as the Collision 5A model) They also feel incredible. They have great balance, and feel amazing. I can’t recommend them more! (Also the team behind the sticks are brilliant too!)
Kieran Tonks (verified owner) –
I’ve been using these sticks for quite some time now and I highly recommend them to any drummer out there! They definitely stand up tall against other big brands and I will continue to use Collision for the forseeable future.

Collision’s 5A sticks meet all expectations in feel, look, and comfort with one exception – they are better than the average 5A stick, especially with durability.
5A sticks suit my style of playing due to anything smaller is too light or too long and anything larger is too heavy or too short, so comfortability is important for me. Collision’s 5A sticks are my go-to for everything outside of ‘extreme metal’, which I use the 5ARs for. The 5As have outlasted every pair of drumsticks I’ve used due to the durability and feel naturally very comfortable. I’ve been using the same pair for almost 3 weeks and they are still holding strong which makes me 100% certain Collision’s 5As are the best sticks for me in every way.

Hello I’m Quindrey ! I’m a Collision Drumsticks Artist. These drumsticks are the most durable Drumsticks I’ve ever played with. These sticks have lasted over 2 months! They have the standard 5A feel but with extra features. The drumstick is light and has a wonderful taper which makes the drumstick easier to control finger dexterity using these drumsticks.
Marquis Faison –
The 5As are a classic favorite of mine. But these are beyond AMAZING!!! They have the standard light-weight feel, and the custom versions look SWEET. No chips after hours of play. It’s a great design, and the silver writing is sweet!!!

I use 5A Collision Drumsticks.
The drumsticks have a very good quality, the wood is excellent and they have an ideal weight.
I recommend Collision Drumsticks due to the high quality of the product and the very good attention of the entire team.
Donnell Perry (verified owner) –
I tried collision drumsticks for the first time and I was very impressed!! I loved them. I play 5A standards and loved them so I went further and customized my own pair. Now I still play 5A but in a customized way to my fit and feel!!! Standard 5A black stained wood and acorn tips. I would recommend collision to anyone!! Once again thanks collision
Siobhan McDonald Denton (verified owner) –
These sticks are incredibly durable, versatile and feel great. They have a little extra length than the standard 5As. I’ve tried all the major brands but nothing compares to the durability and length these offer!
Mikedalaimo (verified owner) –
I’ve been using the Collision 5A’s for about 2 months now. I play both live an in studio on acoustic and electronic kits and I average 1-3 hours of playing per day. The sticks are holding up extremely well and in fact I haven’t as much as chipped a tip yet! The balance and feel in my hand is excellent and although a bit longer than the 5A’s I was playing previously, I adapted to them quickly and am now very comfortable around the kit. Great stick and a great value when you consider the extra time you get out of each pair. Highly recommended!
Vito De Francesco (verified owner) –
I’ve never been so impressed with how durable a set of sticks can be. I’ve broken more than my fair share of drumsticks over the years and it’s damn hard to break a pair of Collisions.
At first, I was also quite weary about the tips being wooden, as tips usually tend to break first and you lose all definition on ride cymbals…but not with these 5A’s. I have yet to break a tip.
If you’re a hard-hitter and are looking at using some sticks that are hard to break…look no further!
strebers84 (verified owner) –
The first week playing collision it took me 4 hard exhausting rehearsals to wear these sticks down, they didnt break, i just shaved them down until there were nothing left of them.
I have played 5a’s since the day i started drumming and these sticks are the most solid, light and perfectly balanced sticks i’ve ever used and i would recommend them to anyone who cares about their playing!
Harley Mitchell (verified owner) –
I’ve been using these for a month or so now and they don’t shed wood at all. I’m still on my first pair! 5A’s are also super comfortable for my hands and they are bulky at all. They are light and help me move quickly when doing fills.

As drummer with 18 years of experience I’ve found drumsticks for myself. Since day I’ve got them I fell in love how they became extension of my arm. Longer stick gave me more control over the cymbals and their weight is perfect for playing groovy ghost notes on snare. I’m sure there is no better drumsticks for me than Collision classic 5A.
riffsuandi (verified owner) –
I’ve been using 5A for almost a decade and I have to say Collision Drumsticks specifically offers the best quality drumsticks. It’s strong and unbreakable yet comfortable. It’s slightly longer than a traditional 5A which means I don’t have to hyper-extend my reach for the crashes and it has slightly more weight power which I don’t have to exert myself to articulate the accent of the notes. Overall best drumsticks quality!
JOSE DUQUE (verified owner) –
from the moment I grab them, I remember Carlton’s words to me: ” wait till you grab them mate”. He wasn’t wrong. the weight distribution is something that immediately caught my attention. They felt sturdy and solid. What I loved more about them is the fact that even the regular 5As are a tad longer than other brands. at first, I thought it was weird. But after playing with them, I discovered that, at least in my case, by shifting where do I grab them depending on style, I can modify their weight distribution, to get more attack or more subtle tones out of them. I LOVE THEM. to top things off, the community and camaraderie that one feels as an Artist within Collision is parallel to none 10 extra stars to Collision just because

Collision’s 5As are the most comfortable stick I’ve ever played. The silver package is so worth it and definitely needs to be in your arsenal.

I use the 5A regular and am so impressed with them. The feel great and are well balanced. I can play very powerful stuff, and also go very fast. These sticks are so strong they never break. I love Collision Drumsticks.
Christian Bojarski (verified owner) –
Love these sticks! I personally use the 5a’s for worship drumming and progressive rock/jazz and they work fantastic. Love the weight and feel of the wood. Nothing better than collision!
Jason Peterson (verified owner) –
I play the Collision 5A. Theses sticks are very well balanced and matched. What really surprised me was the durability of these sticks. Rim shot after rim shot, they have held up extremely well. The shape of the bead, overall width and length of the stick gives me the flexibility to use them in a plethora of different styles and genres of music. I fully endorse and would recommend these sticks to any drummer looking for a high quality stick that will hold up to the rigors of touring and recording.
Christian Whittington (verified owner) –
These sticks are very lightweight, making it a bit easier to move around the kit quickly. They’re also pretty durable considering how lightweight they are. Plus you can get your signature or band logo printed on these, so you can have sticks that are unique to you. Absolutely love these.
Sven „Hymir“ Luithardt –
This drumsticks are awsome. They don’t break as soon as the sticks I play before. The sticks locks massive but there are very light. I play tempos until 260bpm 16th notes couse I am in the extrem Metal ganre. I like the sticks and my wallet like it too. The sound you get off you’re kit and the cymbals are amazing. I absolutely can recommend this sticks. Greetings from Germany and Cheers
Valon Berisha –
These drumsticks are all that a heavy hitting drummer could ask for. They don’t break, most importantly the tip doesn’t chip off so you get a really good definition. I highly recommend them to everyone without any doubt.
Eric Garcia (verified owner) –
I’ve been a Collision artist for about 4 months now and I can honestly say that these sticks are some of the strongest sticks on the market. They truly feel right at home and never fail to pack a punch! I play all genres of music however my main band plays on the heavier side (progressive rock). I find myself using the same pair for weeks after weeks after weeks without feeling any weakness in the wood. I am very glad to call myself a Collision artist!
Samantha Tralongo (verified owner) –
I enjoy to play with 5A Collission Drumsticks. I believe they are one of the best in the market. The weight and balance is fantastic and they are durable and comfortable. I do recommend them!
TuQica Cakau (verified owner) –
What’s not to like about these sticks ?!
They feel super comfortable in my hands, they’re durable and the best sticks I’ve used to date. All the Collision sticks I’ve used and use are consistent. I’ve never pulled out a stick that felt blunt or just didn’t match with its pair.
Fabio nardelli (verified owner) –
Personally I’ve never played the same pair of drumsticks for so long! I play 5a size and they are perfect for every style from the softer to the heaviest one. They feel just great and the balance is perfect! There’s nothing like collision drumsticks. LOVE THEM!
Tyla Brooks –
I absolutely love these sticks, the proportion, weight, the feel is all perfect and they hold up perfectly, I use them day in day out and hit fairly hard sometimes and they take it brilliantly! – Tyla Drumming

The Collision 5As are just perfect for me. If I were to design a custom stick, this would be it. The weight and feel, and the extra length than a typical 5A are exactly what I want in a stick. They’re a natural extension of my hands and have been a fantastic addition to my stick bag. It’s no contest: Collision 5As are the best sticks I’ve ever played.
