Re: Best Stick between 5b and 2b??
I switched to Vic Firth's SD1 General about two months ago. They're maple sticks, but they're extremely sturdy. Everyone says Maple is a more fragile wood, but I slug my drums pretty hard and I have yet to break a pair. They're a bit thicker than a 5B, but thinner than a 2B. They're also quite long, ball tip. I think I'll be using these for many years to come. They're aimed more toward Corps drummers, but they aren't nearly as thick or heavy as the Vic Firth's Corpsmasters.
