I was at G.C. today looking for some new sticks. I've been playing the VF Erskine Ride stick for jazz for years. I love the stick, but, I prefer a lacquered stick for the tacky grip, and Ride sticks have been coming in totally bare for a few years now. Well, I saw a stick I hadn't seen before, the VF Keith Carlock signature stick. It's basically a 5A barrel like the Ride stick, but, with a longer taper and a tiny wood tip that usually sounds fantastic on thin, dark rides. AND it has the Doubleglaze finish. I'm pretty stoked!
