The exact differences vary from one drum stick maker to another.  Typically, the "super" models feature a bit larger tip thickness and may be slightly longer in length.  Oten they will also be a slightly larger diameter. 
"
So if the typical 5-A model is, for example, .555" in diameter, the "super"  model might be .575 giving it a bit more weight, durability, and volume. 

Check the manufactuer's web-site for the specifications on the sticks.

The main thing I would suggest about drum sticks would be to find models that are both comfortable to your grip and controlable for playing your style(s) of music.

You might want to read my recent DSA blog about selecting the right sticks.
