Cons: May be a bit bright sounding for some players - that fact may actually be a "pro" for some. A little on the heavy side for a comparable 5B stick made of wood. Ideal for rock players. Likely too thick and heavy for jazz players. A bit pricey - at nearly $50 retail, there better be some secret sauce up in there.
I hope Firth comes out with a thinner, lighter version of this. I do like the product, but personally tend to play a thinner stick as I'm more jazz and fusion oriented. Surprisingly, Colaiuta plays a thicker stick than this on everything he does!
Good product overall. Finally, a composite material stick that's not super annoying to play.
I ordered the sticks on Black Friday and they arrived on Monday... Very good service. The sticks themselves are very nice. I was breaking sticks left and right before I got them, but I have now had these sticks for over a month and they are still looking and sounding great. I would have broken 3-4 pairs by now because I am a hard hitter, but these are holding up really well.
Cons: They only come in one color and size. I would not mind a slightly lighter/skinnier stick made out of the same material. Perhaps one or two different colors other than black if possible.

"The sticks are great thanks. Feel comfortable in the hands. Have a little extra weight for rebound and a heavier sound. These will be my main sticks. Thank you very much". Can't get better than that.
Je lui avais déjà offert ce modèle il y a 3 ans et il les adore donc il a été très heureux d'en avoir une nouvelle paire
My honest review is that these sticks are superb for practising. They are a little heavier than others so do not expect to be Dennis Chambers immediately because being extremely fast with these sticks comes after giving them a fair bit of practice. I use these sticks to primarily practice with. Reason being is that you practice way more than you play live, so if you are looking for a stick that will suffice for an age under intensive practice day in, day out, these are perfect! These sticks are modelled after a 5B, but they're a little heavier as said previously, so i like to play live with my 5BN sticks and practice with the Titans. They are also especially good for practice because when switching to a 5B as I do, it feels effortless to play very fast because these sticks make you stronger around the kit as a bi-product of the extra weight. Perhaps these aren't so good to pick up when just starting out. These are more for the massively-passionate-wanting-to-play-all-day-every-day kind of drummer rather than the occasional hobbyist. I love these sticks for the benefit it gives me, and would recommend to anyone as passionate as I am.
