Each company is different.
Are you talking about the weight of the drumstick or the variation in weight, 5.0 grams for a 5A is ridiculously light, it will be easily above the 100 grams mark...

Vic Firth 7A American Hickory is a light jazz drumstick, but it's weight is already much more than 5 grams.

Tip: Wood
Item Weight: 91 g
Product Dimensions: 1.3 x 39.4 x 3 cm
Item model number: 7A
