        I use the X5AN for a few reasons. Once, i believe that nylon sticks attack the cymbal better and produce a better sound (when on at bar gigs, smaller venues, not a lot of mics on the kit). The reason for the "X" is because I tend to sit far back from the snare and the rest of the kit so any additional length is much appreciated.

        If you are a heavy hitter, i would suggest either the 55A/ X55a (NEW) or the 5B/X5B either wood or nylon tip!
        My personal favorite stick is the X55A! it gives you that same sound, but a little more umph!
        Vic Firth does make the "Best" sticks on the market (my opinion) I love Vic Firth sticks and I will not play any other brand!

        These sticks aren't very durable. I had them for a day and I went through a pair already. I don't know if it's me or the sticks but if your thinking about buying these sticks don't. I hit my cymbals alot and they snap right in half.

            I love them, I used to use 5a and switched to X5A, they are a big longer but they feel just right. My choice of stick forever.

                VF X5B's are my exclusive stick of choice. For my style of play, they provide unmatched balance, reach and durability.

                The reason i bought these sticks was because of the original vicfirth logo as displayed in the picture. I prefer that logo spell because i like to distinguish my sticks when i share a kit with other drummers.

                  Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks:

                  Been using the X5A's for nearly a year and I will continue to favor them in live and studio situations. What I like most is the feel, the added length and weight just feels right in your hand. Double stroke rolls seem to take less effort, I get more attack and rebound out of each stroke. I grade the durability of these sticks the same as regular 5A's, your experience may be different because they do give you more powerful strokes. Give them a try if your looking for a different feel around the kit and don't want to change the diameter of your 5A or 5B stick.

                      My son is new to the band at school and he need sticks for the suspended cymbal that wouldn't sound so tinny. You all had just what he needed and it arrived in time for him to be able to practice before the spring concert. Thanks!!

                        I bought these sticks for my son as a Christmas gift, he's a drummer by profession. He told me that he would be ordering these again because he was very pleased. The thing that impressed me the most was the help I received when ordering. The ones I originally wanted were backordered- so the salesgirl put me on hold to locate another salesperson who is a drummer,he recommended a different pair that turned out to be perfect. So, not only would my son recommend these particular sticks, I am so pleased with the help I received while ordering! Thank you MF

                          I use the X5AN for a few reasons. Once, i believe that nylon sticks attack the cymbal better and produce a better sound (when on at bar gigs, smaller venues, not a lot of mics on the kit). The reason for the "X" is because I tend to sit far back from the snare and the rest of the kit so any additional length is much appreciated.
