Default Make sticks heavier toward the back? Move bounce point back

I like to play with my hands gripping the stick behind the point that permits the best bounce. Even with spray on grip and a vibration plug in the end (I use Zildjan Anti-Vibe sticks with spray on plasti coat) the stick is still too light in the back to move the center of gravity.

Has anyone tried to make the stick heavier in the back to pull the CG back so the stick effective elngth is maximized while still allowing for rebound?

Might one use a ring of lead tape? maybe screw something in to the end?

I have a suggestion. Post once. If it's in the wrong forum then ask a moderator to move it for you.

Trueline did make drumsticks exactly that way - the PowerGrip series with a bulb shaped section that you basically cradled in your hand. In addition to backweighting the stick as you describe, it also made it easier to hold onto them.

I liked them, but I didn't buy many pairs and they are now, sadly, defunct.
