I never thought it’d be this hard to replace my regal tip 5B or 5Bx nylon tip. It’s amazing how a little bit of weight, length or coating on the stick can be such a huge difference in feel
I am going through the same thing with the wood tip Jazz-X and 5A-X. Seriously frustrating.
The only thing I found that is even close to the Jazz-X is the VF Hickory X8D. It's close, but it still doesn't have the feel of the Jazz-X.
I ended up with an extremely long VF Questlove stick to replace the 5A-X ... nowhere near the same stick, but I can at least get the job done.
This is definitely one of the more frustrating events to occur in my drumming years.
