V3 > oldschool rubber pads they handed out in snare kits in 6th grade
Rubber pads are big WIN!

Quick question, what's a better snare drum stick; FS-MM (Mike McIntosh) or PR2 (Paul Rennick). Personally I have about 2 pairs of FS-MM sticks, but I don't fee like spending my money on PR2 sticks unless others think it's a good idea.

My PIW group uses Mapex and the sound just as good as Pearls. Probably not as durable, but sound just as awesome. I agree that Dynasty makes the best quads.

Waking up the dead here, but whatever.

Snare drums:
Yamaha > Pearl > Premier (great for pipe bands) > Dynasty (with a good head and tuning, these sound pretty sexy) > Mapex (sounds good, just like Dynasty a little more)
Sticks:
Vic Firth > IP > Promark

Hey, they do make really good tenors. I've read that Dynasty tenors are crap heavy. Probably becuase they have that really big metal bar thing going through it for the carrier to attach to it.

And by the way, which company makes the heaviest snare drums?

I believe the Dynasty tenors are no longer super heavy.

Here are snare weights according to the product catalogs:
Pearl FFX and Dynasty: 16.9 lb
Yamaha: 16.6 lb
Pearl Carbonply: 16.09 lb

I don't know about the CarbonCores. And according to Rennick, the Dynasty Custom Elites are a pound and a half lighter than the older models.

If the drums are only about 16 or 17 pounds, how is it that they put so much stress your back? 16 pounds really isn't that heavy, is it? Maybe I'm just weak.

I tried Dynasty on at DCI finals and it was heavy!!!! My Yamaha feels about 3 pounds lighter. But I heard Mapex, Tama, and Dynasty are the 3 heaviest brands. Tama because all of the extra little features they have and the birch/bubinga shells haha

Which snare pads have a good diameter? or what is a good diameter for practice pads?

I have a "Peace" one i got when i was in 5th grade, and a Yamaha/Evans one i got that came with a set of bells. I've been trying the anaheim stick toss, and the i keep hitting the rim. i feel my pads are so much smaller than a drum.

Most pads are probably 10-13", and I think

I would advise you to get a HH quad pad..Bachman knows his stuff. There are a couple topics on here about the Prologix snare pads..some people liked them..others didn't..I don't know a thing about their tenor pad though

Their tenor pads are made of the same material as the snare pads. Red rubber, same white laminate. Same wood I think, also, as well as the rubber rims. Some people have said that they feel really flimsily built, some others like their feel. They don't seem rock solid, but yet again I've never seen one or played one in person, only seen pictures and a few videos. I would go with the HH pads. They're from VF, a company that really knows what they're doing, and have done it well for however many years. VF is probably more reputable than ProLogix. Not that ProLogix pads are bad; some seem pretty innovative, but I've never used one so I don't know. Nor have I used a HH pad. If ProLogix was that much better than the classic HH pads, they would have a heck of a lot more users.

Nope. That's the thing... lots of people say you don't need rims. If you use correct technique, and you just feel the rebound of the stick in try to keep it high until you reach the next drum/pad, you don't really need them. They're good to have, no doubt, but they're not completely necessary. Now I believe you need to purchase the laminates for the HH pad separately... If you have no laminates, sweeps will be impossible. Rubber has too much friction. You could cover it with electrical or scotch tape to ghetto rig laminates, but you're better off getting real ones.
