For me it would be the zildjian Travis barkers in white. These sticks are aesthetically pleasing but I swear the round tip and girth make it seem like it will bust or break your drumheads. I suppose if you played in the style of tb it would make sense in a cover band or something, but they feel too darn heavy. Second on the list: Metallica's Lars Ulrich metal aheads, another bust or drum puncturer. #3 these sticks are awesome (Vic Firth dreadlocks) but they won't sustain heavy repetitive drumming for thirty plus bucks a pair!
