I like Toca products in terms of their overall value: durable, attractive, lightweight, and decent sound. The bonus to the Flex drums is that they're nesting, though I don't think they sound particularly good. Remo's new Versa Drums offer something similar.... The Toca Freestyle II offers a durable synthetic head AND maintains a fairly traditional look. This is a plus if you're going to dabble at all in folkloric rhythms.
