Sticks are perhaps the most personal part of a drummer's arsenal, as they are literally the extensions of your hands on the instruments. For me, the extra length of these sticks makes playing more comfortable thanks to the reach as well as where the fulcrum point of the stick lies.

Only problem I can think of is the variation in weight (and density) between pairs. While the sticks are paired to match, there can be quite drastic differences in the feel between different pairs due to the variations of the wood consistency. Other than that, if this stick suits your playing, nothing but recommended.

Favourite pair of sticks

Can't go wrong with Vic Firths. X5B allow you to get volume and phat-ness out of your drums in big venues without having to work hard.

Excellent

I started on a 7A and I never really found the right grip.
I switched to bigger chopsticks to work the rebound.
Past the period of adaptation to weight and length (and subject to keeping them in equilibrium point) my game has changed and has become significantly more flexible, the bearings are more regular and come more naturally at hand. The 5B Extreme is good value for the money

Great for rock and heavier styles

Usual Vic Firth quality, ie good, with nice smooth finish and a great feel in the hands. The slightly longer than normal length provides both greater leverage for getting harder hits, but the medium taper still allows for lots of articulation when playing more delicate, intricate stuff.

I like these a lot on my acoustic kit, and use the nylon tipped version on my e-kit.
