My stick bag has....
AJ5, AJ4, signature Steve Gadd, 7A, SD5 Echo, Pro Mark Lightning Rods, Hot Rods & MT3 Mallets and Regal 550W wood handled brushes. All of the sticks have wood tips of varying shapes. I have some sticks with nylon tips at home, but I just don't like the sound. It always seems harsh or makes the cymbals sound cheap, whether I'm playing Zil A's, Zabian HHX & HH's or Paiste
Twenty Masters. And the shape of a wood tip really does make a difference in how both drums and cymbals sound.
