Default Vater XD-5B

I recently picked up a pair of Vater Percussion Xtreme Design 5B Wood Tip, (or XD-5B), and have to say I am pretty impressed.

Does anyone know if these are a new range of sticks? I had a look at the Vater website, and didn't learn much.

Thanks

They aren't new, exactly- they're just hidden beneath the general models on Vater's hickory page. I'm looking to pick up a Warrior and a Fatback 3A tomorrow and see how they compare against my Fusions, which I like a lot. More than any other stick I've tried. Vater make some great stuff.

Thanks, I had never realized the page could be scrolled down, my bad! I toO enjoy Vater sticks, the only stick that doesn't work for me is their maple SD9, for some reason it never feels 'right', which is strange as it is almost exactly the same dimensions as the XD 5B!
