I mostly see people use Vic Firth for marching sticks:
MS1's
MS2's
Ralph Hardimon signature sticks
Scott Johnson signature sticks

I personally prefer the Ralph Hardimons or the MS1's.

I had a pair of MS2s I really liked. I had a pair of Promark ones too that were the best (Jeff Moore models). We went through phases of using Tom Aungst VF sticks which are terrible--they splinter all over the place. Ralph Hardimons are ok but heavy. We got into using IP FS1 and FSPR sticks which are OK. Promark has new Delucia models that would be worth trying.

Our line all uses the same stick for some reason.

At one point we used MS3's, which were ok, but then we switched to Jeff Moor Pro Mark Signature marching sticks which were great, and now we are using MS4's which are probably my favrotie.

Definitley Check out the MS4's.

Delucia...hahah let's not get started on that

We use Tom Aungsts with the Uconn Snare line - we all agree on hating them - they just arent what we like. Check out the ScoJo's or Hardimons if youre going for Vic Firth.

Innovative makes great marching sticks check out the FS-2's I believe reverse tear drop, they feel great.

i use these the JW1's. i used to use the Ralph Hardimon's, but i shredded those soo fast. the JW1's are a tad bit heavier then the Ralph's, but they dont break as easily!

can't go wrong with a good pair of Innovative Percussion. probably the leader in marching percussion.

my favorite IP model is the Mike McIntosh sig stick. but the Rennick, Kuhn, and Casella models are up there.

Around here, the popular sticks tend to be Paul Rennicks or Ralphies. Scott Johnsons are also fairly common. On a side note, the ScoJo practice sticks are really fun to use, and they get picked up pretty quick from the booths present at our high school drumline competitions.
