Default What's 1/2" longer than a 2B and made of Maple?

Well, I don't know. Can you help?

I lol'd, but that's actually the kind of stick I'm looking for. That or a slightly-skinnier hickory version.

Just TRY Regal Tip Alex Van Halen. Hickory. It has the length you desire and is thinner than a 2B.

Be careful before you buy these, theyre 18" long (2B's is probably 16", Vic Firth's is 16.25") so the feel may not be exactly what you're looking for. Unless you choke up on the sticks a lot. Either way I would want to try them out before buying them.

I tried the Van Halen sticks on a whim, and they're truly bizarre-feeling. Even if you choke up on them the center of balance is in such a weird place they never felt comfortable to me.
