I have a Paiste 2002 24" ride...I love it.I move all over the cymbal,it has lots of room for different accents and distiguishments of the tunes.If I want a washy sound I'll use the thicker part of my stick and hit the cymbal more outer towards the edge.If I want something more direct I'll hit more towards the bell with the tip of my stick.And the bell.....piercing but very musical,it will get'cha noticed and make the tune stand out

yea man, we have a 22" at the college here, and i was surprised at the sound considering how expensive they are. it's not bad, but i wouldn't pay too much for it. Here's the link for musician's friend http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Paiste-2002-Ride-Cymbal?sku=447196
they had it priced around 300 so you'll have to make your own judgement as to it's current worth!

I have a 24" aswell, and I really like it. The only problem I've had with it is the placement of it. It's so freaking huge, that I had a hard time finding a good setup for it, with out taking up room from the drums or other cymbals.

I don't use the heavy, but my ride is a Paiste 22" 2002. I love it. I agree on the bell size though. It's the same size, if not smaller than the bells on my crash cymbals.
