American Classic PureGrit and DoubleGlaze Sticks
These new sticks are designed to offer two tactile experiences for 5A and 5B players. PureGrit sticks are for sweaty hands and are lacquer-free. They have a slight amount of grittiness and a raw texture. Over time, oil and perspiration from the hands penetrate the surface of the stick, creating a natural feel.
DoubleGlaze sticks are coated with a specialized formula that creates a tacky feel. The lacquered surface allows players with dry hands to relax their grip on the stick. The thick coating also adds a bit of mass for a solider feel.
