The American Classic X5A sticks from Vic Firth are perfect for players who like a little extra reach from their basic 5A. These sticks are great for adding power and volume to your playing without disrupting the balance and feel of a midsized stick. If you find the 5A to be slightly too small and the 5B to be slightly too large you may find these sticks are just right! -Alex
