Heavier the stick the faster your playing.
you'd think a heavier stick would slow you down dont you think? think of a baseball player with weights on his bat before he hits. the reason? so his swing is faster and the bat feels lighter when hes up to bat. i'd think the same would go for sticks. if you warmed up with 2B's then played with 5A's i would expect to be flying!
just my 2 cents.
You can get good momentum with a heavy stick, but the trade if is that you'll fatigue faster
which is why i use the lighter stick. the bands i play in involve alot of blast beats for extended periods of time.
The 707s are about a 5A's thickness, but they're slightly longer and with a ball tip
