Vic Firth American Classic 5A's or/and 5B's.

Great sticks, all though I found them a bit expensive and easy to break at times.

Anyone else use the metal Ahead sticks? I love my Lars Ulrich signatures, especially with some vater sticktape on 'em... It's like having really big 2Bs without the weight.

Steve Gadd Sig Sticks
Pro-Mark 737
Nylon tips on both.

those are my preferred sticks. The 737's are THIN. Great jazz stick, and offers a very large amount of control and range. The Gadd's are just plain awesome. There is nothing one can't do with 'em.

I prefer the Mike Portnoy signature sticks buy Promark. They are the perfect weight for me and, while I play pretty hard, they hold up very well.

In my 6 years of playing drums, my style and technique has demanded me to beat the hell out of my sticks. I've been through Vic Firths, Promark, and the Zildjian dip sticks. I'm using Vater Xtreme design 5B Nylon tip sticks and from my perspective I think they are the toughest sticks I've ever got my hands on.
