I've Been Using These Sticks For About 7 Years And Love Their Balance And Feel, The Nylon Tip Is Very Durable With Great Attack On Drums And Cymbals Compered To Wooden Tips Which Splinter And Become Dull After A While.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
Most popular size for speed, comfort and power!

The title says it all, basically. The 5A size (and 5B) sizes are the most popular sizes for drumsticks because they are comfortable (not too heavy) but not too light either. They provide the perfect balance for speed and power. The nylon tip also provides the brighter sound, especially on cymbals, when compared to wood tips which give a warmer sound. Also, the tear drop shape of the tip is the 'best of both worlds' when it comes to surface area. The pointy tip provides articulated sounds on cymbals and the rest of the tip's larger surface area provides full tone. Personally, I tried the other version of these drumsticks with the anti-slip coating but it felt a little sticky. That is not to say that it's a bad thing. Maybe it's best for drummers who play with gloves instead of bare hands. I prefer this type without the anti-slip coating.
