Vic Firth VFX5AN Extreme 5AN -Nylon Tip
Martin7392 16.02.2015
I bought these because I'm not the tallest drummer in the world - therefore my reach is also reduced. with the way my kit is currently placed I need the extra length to enable me to reach all parts. It may only be half an inch but it makes the difference. I buy Vic Firth sticks as they have a nice weight and balance to them. They also last a lot longer than other (certainly cheaper but inferior) sticks due to the American hickory wood. The nylon tip is an important feature as it returns a rich cymbal sound. Some reviews would suggest these are more suited to jazz but I find they work very well for rock.

Very nice sticks basically 5As with an extra1/4" but it does make a large difference to how you play. I found these a Lot cheaper On thomann than in my local music shop by almost 5 euro And from now on I will only be buying sticks from thomann

these are my preferred main sticks. also 66samus uses them. they are longer so i can reach around the kit easier and have really, really good rebound on any surface especially the ride, they have great weight balance and feel comfortable. the nylon tip sounds great on cymbals and never breaks.
cons: they break a little easier since they are thin and long, the price is a twice more opposed to nova 5an.
Overall my favourite sticks, worth it

I recently fell in love with the Vic Firth VFX5A Extreme 5A. They add that little bit of length that makes all the difference without increasing the stick weight too much.

But all my VF tips start pealing away at some points. So for songs requiring more ride play, I switch to the nylon head. And ping wouldn't get any clearer than this.

Very great pair of sticks.
