Also, I will work on my stick control, but I actually don't mind playing thinner and lighter sticks.
You'll just have to go try them out. If you like lighter sticks they may be for you.
I primarily use VF 7A sticks which, at 15.5", are slightly longer (and I think bigger) than the Regal Tip 7As which are 15".
I also use the VF AJ6 quite a bit. I have found that I prefer a shorter stick. If they were available at all around me I would probably give the Regal Tips a try. If you have the means, go give them a shot.
