I have to concur about the Crazy Crow sticks. They are much too light for my taste. I don't like really heavy sticks but those things don't make any sound at all.

I don't know much about construction since I have only made a few sticks over time but the ones that I use have handles that are made of duct tape wrapped straight around the handles two rows high. It really makes a nice solid handle.

As for the wooden sticks, I have really only heard of dogwood being used for them. Dogwood is very dense and very strong. It is often used for making bows, so it must be strong. The only problem is finding a clear, knot-free piece of it since it usually grows really crooked. Something like Osage Orange would probably work as well though since they are kind of similar types of wood.

Anyway.... Hope this was useful.
