All excellent choices.

The Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature stick is my latest favorite.

Length: 16 1/2"
Diameter: tapered from .695" to .630"

Vic Firth says this stick is made of hickory but it feels a little lighter, enough so that I thought it was maple.

Feels like a beefier 5B, plays like a 2B luv it
