Sticking with sticks or switching sticks

I've played VF 5As for most of my 20+ years dabbling with drums (with a break in the middle). Tried some others, but never was enticed away from them.

Randomly I got sent a pair of Wincent 5AXL with a cymbal I bought and OH MY! I'm in love, never looked back since.

Promark activegrip 5B. I do love that activegrip coating, it definitely works for me. I used to drop sticks like it was my job. I also have VF5A, a mess of Vater 7A and a pair of VF 7AN for the old e-kit. I have come to love the feel of the 5B and may make that my go to.

5A all the way for me, 27 years and counting.
Zildjian or Promark are my favourites - they have a pretty similar feel and both feel just a tad lighter than VF et al.
The Promark Active grip is nice too, it works well.
Now and again I try other sizes or models but so far I have always come back to the 5A's.
