I'm with you on the Rich Sticks lacquer. I got some custom sticks from them (basically a thicker Peter Erskine Ride Stick, lacquered) and they last forever. I bought 24 pairs over two years ago, and I think I still have 7 or 8 pairs left.I use the doubleglaze now too. I have very dry hands and I need a lacquered stick as I can't grip the stick well if it doesn't have that. I think my only issue with the Vic Firth is that they seen to be chipping up faster than I would like. I was endorsing Rich sticks for a while and I had just got them to lacquer a stick for me that was just perfect. I have never played a stick that was so durable. Those lasted forever. Of course the cynic in me thinks that Vic Firth probably wants me to go through more sticks so I have to buy more. It is a business afterall....
