So I've finally realized that the sticks I've been using for sometime are too heavy for me. I ended up changing to a Regal Tip 7A model and am very happy with that, but the only problem is that they are too short. Does anyone know of a stick very similar to the Regal Tip 7A in feel and weight, but longer? Say around 16" or 16 1/4" ? Preferably with a slightly larger tip as well. I've tried numerous sticks, but I'm limited by what my local dealers carry. Thanks a lot. :)

If you don't mind nylon tips you should try Promark Mike Portnoy signature sticks. They're quite long and light
dim my eyes if they should compromise
