The diameter of the stick is .580; right betwen a 5A and 5B diameter. The length is standard, but that's alright because my new kit has power toms and I have to angle them a little more. I think I may make this stick my main players. They just felt right!
Yep, you're right, typo.
Recently I've been using the Aaron Spears sticks, a little slimmer, no grip of course, but they feel great.
Now when I go back to a "regular length" stick the balance feels terribly off and the reach feels stunted, like I'm playing with a pencil or something.
