They just feel more comfortable if you're playing more on the whole note/lower tempo side of things. The extra weight increases the sense of power you have over the drums, but I think also helps water down the urge to place too many notes into fills.
I get what you mean. I was using the Virgil Donati Assault sticks today (2B size) and they felt great. However, I've used them before and they felt weighty after a bit of use and switched back to a 5B.
Is it my hands getting used to the stick?
