I would just sift though the 5B's at your local drum shop and pick out the heavy paris.
or try these models:

Vater:
Power 5B
5B Xtream

Regal Tip:
5BX
7B
5B E-Series Wide

Vic Firth:
Extream 5B


That's all I know off hand that is around a 5B but a little heavyer. Most of them add a bit of length. 16.25" or 16.5"

The Vic Firth Rod Morgenstein model is almost exactly midway between the 5B and 2B. I use them and love them. I only wish they came in nylon tips...

Just ask at a drum shop to try out different 5b's. All the different stick companies make sticks of a slightly different weight. I've found vic firths 5a's to be quite light.

I think you might like Chad Smith's signature Funk Blasters by Vater. They have a 5b grip, but with a beefier taper, so there is a little more added weight, but not too much. I am not sure how they compare to other 5bs, but they might be what you are looking for.
