The extreme 5A (nylon) is my stick of choice when touring, but in town and on quieter gigs I use Vic Firth 8D (nylon) and AJ5 (wood tip.)

i'm back with vic firth, this time for good. i've always loved their designs, but i don't like their finish, too slippery. so, now i just take some medium grit sandpaper and rough 'em up a little, problem solved. i like both the standard 5b and the extreme 5b, depending on what and where i'm playing.

Yeah, those stickies definitely get to where no one reads them anymore.

I use Promark 5Bs. I played snare in HS and was more or less conditioned to like thick, round headed sticks. We played with Promark Jeff Moores. When I began playing the kit more I sort of mimicked the stick I learned on because I like it's rebound speed and it's projection. Any 5B stick I like has a short taper and round head. You can select any brand of it, but I had a pair of 5B Vics that broke after about a week of playing, as well as a pair of Vic marching snare sticks that broke within a couple weeks (while my Jeff Moores lasted more than a month during marching season), so I'm not interested in Vic Firth anymore - just haven't passed the test imo. I consider them to be riding on their famous name, much like Ziljian.
