Ah I used to use 2B's but my hulking frame was too much for the measly toothpick. Now I used 3 inchers wraped in sheeted steel. Hope this helps.

With the inconsistencies and breaking i get in wood sticks, I'm considering giving Ahead another go. If I'm still unhappy with the differences in feel, i might design my own pair of indestructibles. Could be fun  Wink

2B's when not miked, 5B's when miked. I bang like John Bonham, so in intimate settings it's still loud. Sometimes 5B's still too much. I'm trying 5A's but will snap them like twigs.

You're lucky that way GretschCB0. Personally I can't play with anything smaller than a 5A. Doesn't bounce the way I'm used to. If you can play with any size stick easily you're lucky!

Ive always used Pro Mark 5A's or 747's. I love a light stick for rolls and rolling on the ride. Only broke a few pair maybe when playing Metallica songs, but I've learned loud isn't always better

Very, very true. I find it just noise when everything is so loud.

I played with Vic Firth 7A for years.  But since I started playing in the band I play in now, with a guitarist that doesn't know the meaning of the word 'easy', I play with 5B.  Roll Eyes

Vater makes mine.  Size?....well they're the IB JAMN model 

They are slightly smaller than the traditional 5B stick and slightly larger than the traditional 5A stick;

They are  16" in length;

They have an olive shapped nylon tip;

They are made of hickory and lightly dipped in clear sealant for a moisture barrier.

I use lighter weight maple sticks for "quiet" accoustic dates, because I hate playing stick patterns with brushes.  Typically that "maple" stick is the Vic Firth Joe Pacarro model diamond tip.
