College basketball starts in late November and many high school basketball seasons begin in early November, so it’s time to order your thundersticks early to save money and make sure you receive them in time for the start of your season. These ever-popular stadium noisemakers go by many different names, includes thunderstix, BamBams, and just the plain English spelling “thundersticks.” However, they are all very similar and essentially the same (except for our domestically printed thundersticks, which are reusable). There are; however, many different styles to choose from as shown below.
Also, production time can vary depending on which ones you choose. The longer production time…the cheaper the price. So plan ahead and order early to get more “bang” for your buck!
