Default Stick Size Curiousity

Just curious: Is there a size between 5A and 5B? I love the light grace of 5A's, but the power and grip of 5B's.

Does Vater or Vic Firth make anything like that?

I reckon Vater Fusions are a pretty good balance between 5A and 5B.

I use 747s in a natural stick (no eurothane covering) nylon tips mostly. For me the Hickory works well, I can whittle them down pretty good now. Things would be tuff for me with todays stick prices if I was in my youth, they broke so easily hahahaha!!!! Doc




............I remember quality sticks selling at 59 to 89 cents a pair, damn!!!!!

I love these sticks. Fusions are the perfect size for me. I sometimes play ProMark Ringo signatures for the extra length, and at times the Regal Pro for the extra ride ping but love the Fusions.

Definitely, Grunter. Love 'em too.

In the 90's (long before I'd ever heard of Vater) I used to get my sticks custom made. Between myself and the stickmaker, we pretty much came a up with a Vater Fusion. I had a slightly thicker taper at the shoulder and ever so slightly larger round tip.....but for all intents and purposes, I designed myself a Fusion.......long before I knew what a Fusion was. ;-)
