Re: One or two favorite sticks?
I've tried all sorts of different models from all of the major stick manufacturers and always seem to keep coming back to the Pro-Mark 747 hickory nylon tip model. However, I may have to make a switch soon, as they've changed the tip shape and the new nylon material is softer. Instead of it being a sort of shiny, glossy small oval, it's now more of a dull, matte elongated oval. Not a fan. The wood tips haven't seem to change (yet), so I may make a switch, even though I'll miss the ride cymbal articulation that the old-style nylon tips gave.
