The patented HardCore beater utilizes a hard plastic core embedded in soft foam rubber. You can achieve the desired amount of attack by easily adjusting the level of contact the core has with the head. When playing soft, the beater acts much like a felt beater, but when struck hard, it has all the attack of a hard plastic or wood beater ball.

You can set the plastic center back from the foam front so it only makes contact when you need more response from the drum. Highly recommended to put into your bag of options.
My playing style: I kick hard. Put to the test, this DW hardcore beater has been great. Adjusting the head gives a fuller "whoomp" sound, or if you let the solid core through a little more, it has very nice attack. A couple of things: if your primary style is quick attack kicks (speed metal, punk), these may not be for you -- they seem to come off the head a little slower than other models. Also, if the solid core of the beater is too visible, you'll dent your head pretty quickly. The speed is better with the solid core poking out, but your bass head will look like it came home from a drunken bender at a cage fight tournament. Either use a pad or readjust the solid core so it's more within the foam head. If you're looking for something that can handle the rigors of anything short of metal, or if you play a variety of styles, the head adjusts well to produce different tones. I've had this beater on the kit ever since I bought it and I haven't busted a head, and I haven't yet tried the other two beaters I bought. The sound is dynamic enough that I have no need to look any further.
