Default Sticks Question

I play Pro Mark 5A wood tips... But I am looking for something with a little more length...but the same size and weigh as a normal 5A.... Any recommendations? I am thinking this would probably be a signature stick but I could be wrong.


TIA

Mike

I think the Ringo signature sticks are a slightly longer regular Pro-Mark 5A.

You can try this and you can also try the Promark 747. The tip is slightly bigger though on the 747.

Thanks to you both for the suggestions! I was looking at the Pro mark RS sticks which I found online but not on the Pro Mark site. Looks like Ringo has switched over to Zildjian sticks. Going to pick up a pair from Musicians Friend and give them a go.

Thanks again!

Mike

The 747 is good suggestion. Peace and goodwill.

I think either Vic Firth or Vater offer an extended 5A stick, if you're OK with changing brands.

Have you looked at the Pro Mark website? There's an easy to use search engine and a lot of options for longer sticks with similar specs to 5A's, including an actual 5A long...
