I might as well replace my handsticks with bananas at this point. They always seem to end up that way.
I've gone through:
-Henry's Aluminums
-Babache Energys
-Babache Extremes

The aluminums and extremes resemble bananas at this point, and the energys just plain snapped in half on an excalibur genocide.
Am I a cruel diaboloer when it comes to sticks, or am I just using the wrong kinds?
Halp.
All recommendations are welcome. (Except for wood. They're just too light.)

Go with Sundia Carbons. I love the feel of them and they dont break too easily as far as I know. They are by far my favorite sticks.

Aluminum sticks can bend. Carbon sticks can break. Pick your poison. With a bit of work and time and a hard flat surface you can do a pretty good job straightening out most aluminum stick bends.

I have these sticks:

They have lasted me ages and only the grips seem to wear.
My friend has gone through $60 carbon sticks (not sure what kind) they snapped after a month so i wouldn't get them (and they were flimsy).
He is currently using aluminum sticks (http://www.firetoys.co.uk/juggling/aluminium-diabolo-handsticks.html), they have lasted over a year but are now slightly bending and grips are coming off (sticks can't last forever).
So i recommend  (my sticks) or aluminium.

Look through these and see what you like (I prefer Mr Babache over Henrys):

Hope that helps  :-D
