Maple is perfect if you need lighter sticks but with the same feel as the Hickory RoundTip line. Also the maple sticks are UWP ( Unique Wax Protection) treated and are of course weighed and pitched for a perfect match. The rounded tip creates brilliant and "finer" cymbal sounds compared to a traditional "tear-drop"- tip. All sticks are matched in weight and pitche. On top of this, all Wincent drumsticks have the model code printed on the butt-end of the stick for easy identification in your stick bag or even when you are in a rush for a gigg and need to find your Wincent sticks quick in your local Music store. This has been a Wincent tradmark since 2002. The red print shows that it is maple and the black is showing that it is hickory. Easy!
