I just ordered some Promark 3S marching sticks--17" long and .728 diameter. I'm not sure why but I just really like the hefty feel of weight, and the particular balance those large sticks have. Anyone else feel that way?
I use the 2S sticks on that gig I do, but it's a necessary evil since I'm using these huge gloves and have to play as loud as I can. It took me a while to get used to them. But when I marched drum corps, I was using 3S-type sticks all the time, although I find those a little too thick for me these days. I say if it helps you play better and gives you the sound you want, more power to ya' ;)
