A curious stick that should get some attention

Comments:

I had seen this stick to be a recent release and wanted to give it a try. I have the other Atkatz model and I enjoy it quite a bit, so figured this could be a cool stick to have. Until you see this in person, it's really hard to understand just how extreme everything about it is. The tip is just so tiny and the neck is quite narrow with fairly pronounced and aggressive taper. Here is the surprising part though, the weight. I noticed they felt quite heavier than any sticks I currently used so I weighed them and sure enough they came in at 73g versus the Atkatz original model at 67. They felt closer to my previously owned rosewood coopermans than anything else so far. I have never had birch sticks so I am unsure if heavier weight is property of that wood. How do they feel? well like I said it reminded me of the rosewood sticks which were gram c johns and those have a smaller bead and were good at pulling out clarity during soft passages as the weight aided in that. I've only put them to the pad, but they are easy to play with a low volume. I don't know yet if they are too niche so I think 4 stars are appropriate for me since I may not get to use them frequently. My plan is to do some swaps between these and the leggiero sticks to see which performs better since they sort of serve the same purpose.
