I don't go through sticks on a daily basis, but once is a while something will crack with the grain. Wear is usually the issue. If I'm playing a lot of straight ahead, the tips wear down so the ride cymbal sound becomes too undefined, in which case nylon may be an option, or if I'm doing a lot of pocket music, both sticks tend to get eaten away by rimshots or high hats, and unevenly at that.
