VicFirth 5a,7a og 8d. 7a for worship and "quiet" playing, 5a for practice and bandconserts. 8d just for the comfort: the length of 5a and the with of 7a. maybe I'll change form 7a to 8d.
I have some Vater sticks, but hardly use them.

Right now I am testing B-stick. very good. its recomended. http://www.b-stick.dk/

i like the pro mark 7A's or 5A's and vic firth 7's and 5's i like the 7's more cuz it helps me with speed for fills etc being
a lighter stick...
oh and has anyone ever tried sex wax for drum sticks??? i saw them on ebay its a wax made by sex wax surf board comp. but for drum sticks, thought id ask if its anygood???


Pro Mark 5B Nylons. I like the length and the feel I get from them. Also, don't fall for the misconception that a lighter stick is a faster stick!


they are for me, but once you get lighter than a 7A, i cant get any faster

Heavier the stick the faster your playing.


heavier sticks rebound more but are also more weight to move. playing with a heavier stick wont nesseceraly make you faster or slower
