Default Sticks that do-not taper

A few years ago, I had a pair of sticks that did not taper what so ever, just a straight stick. I loved them, but cannot find them anymore, they were someones "rock" stick. Anyone any ideas?

Pro Mark Millenium II Rock Knocker. Don't know if they still make them but I bought a set a couple of years ago. About the size of a 5A with a "butt" end on each end.

The Promark stick is called the Rock Knocker. It comes in hickory and oak, with a .551 diameter. I used to use a pair of them for extreme volume without sizing up a stick.

Vater's version is called the Hammer, it's slightly thicker (.570, about 5B thickness).

Timbale sticks look the same on the website, but in reality are thinner than 7As in most cases, and you'll need those extra 3 pairs when you snap the first pair like twigs on your rims.

The Zildjian 'Absolute Rock' is a straight stick with no taper or bead I think.

Smaller diam to bigger/heavier in Double Butt sticks:

Pro Mark Rock Knocker

Regal Tip Power Rock

Zildjian Absolute Rock

Vater Morgan Rose (heavier than Regal Tips but say they are the same diam)

Timbale sticks are OK if you aren't a heavy hitter, otherwise they can break pretty easily.
