I also worked on a "bounce" style stick with a longer taper. I turned out several pair of those in a couple different diameters. I've got a drummer interested in that style. They will be available in prototype acorn and barrel as well.
The .555≠ (747) was a hit. The drummer I made them for loved them. However, he would like them longer. I'll see what I can do to accommodate him. I now have a small supply of the 16.25" .555 (747) WITH acorn tip in stock.
