I suppose the weckl model.....but it all depends on the drum angle and the head tightness in my opinion,

But fot cymbals there is one clear winner for me, the peter erskine ride stick, one medium stroke can get 5 CLEAR bounces, makes playing fast jazz a breeze, it really does

While a longer stick will tend to give more bounce, more important than size is taper. The longer and more drastic the taper is, the more rebound the stick will have, although it will be weaker and not as loud as a stick that has less or no taper.

There are a lot of factors involved in stick bounce or rebound; far more than drumstick size.

Playing surface tension (eg. drumhead), weight of the drumstick, stroke height, stroke velocity, stick grip, balance point or fulcrum position, etc.

I think you are kidding yourself if you think one particular stick gives the most bounce or rebounds.

Find a stick that feels good to your hands and gets the sound that you want/like ... then start working on your playing technique.

If you need some suggestions on how to improve your rebounds/bounces, here's one particular (fun) way that I came up with for my students years ago; it's called The Rebound Game.

There are many other ways to go about it, but the constant ingredient is practice.

Like Bart says, you are looking in the wrong place. You have to go through many, MANY types of sticks to find out which ones YOU prefer. Your technique is 99% of the bounce, not the stick. That is because sticks are so well manufactured today that you cant really find a bad one....

So, just go to your local music store, and pick out ten different pairs, and get to WORK!

cheers,
Casper
