Default long sticks?

Why might someone want to switch to longer sticks, what sort of difference should be expected when switching?

Default Re: long sticks?

Comfort and feel......same reason for most of the choices a player used when selecting gear or set up.

Longer sticks will offer a different balance and different feel.

Wander into a store, pick up a a long stick and a standard stick of the same or similar diameter and weight.....note the difference?

Reaching cymbals etc, lots of reasons, just like diameter, taper etc. I just bought some Abe Laboriel sticks that have a long taper and are 17 inches long. Love them for heavier stuff. I'm sure in Abe's hand they feel like 7A.

I have been using Vater Fusion Sticks for quite some time and love the feel and the round tip. I just found two new ones. Sugar Maple, and Nude, no clear finish, with round plastic tip.

Longer sticks are used for different purposes and playing functions. Give a try and find it yourself mate...
