Default Looking for a longer stick.

I am looking for a longer stick but not finding any luck. I am playing a Promark 747 right now, which is longer than your average stick, but i am looking for something with a little more length because i have short arms. Any suggestions?

Steve Jordan's VF signature stick is pretty long. I think it's 17".

There's also the Vater Stretch 7a, a bit thinner than the Promark but it's over 16". I'm sure there are other models out there too.

Edit: Looking through Regal Tip and Vic Firth's charts, there are a couple of models over 16" and around the same diameter as the Promark 747 (which is .551):
(sorted by diameter)
VF Extreme 8D: 0.540" d, 16.5" l
RT Chester Thompson: 0.550" d, 17" l
VF Stanton Moore and Terry Bozzio: 0.550" d, 16.25" l
RT Anarchy X: 0.555" d, 16.5" l
VF Zoro: 0.555" d, 16.375" l (i used to play these. loved 'em.)

All have wood tips, though of course taper & tip shape vary between them. Hopefully that helps.

Promark 747 is essentially a 5A with .25 extra inches. Go for a stretch 5A for starters, like the Vic Firth X5A.

Just FYI, Vic 5As are .565" diameter, while Pro-Mark 5As are .551". Weird difference, but as someone who would notice that delta, I feel obligated to point it out.
