What stick do 3d thumb flyers use?

I'm wondering what all other thumb flyers use. I've been using stock ones. Just wondering what you guys use?

..."stock" is different from radio to radio. Hitec Aurora A9 is pretty sharp for example, Spektrum aren't all that sharp. I like them pointy... for aftermarket sticks, SpotOnRc makes some nice pointy sticks.

I am using my stock hitec sticks as they are nice and pointy. You want sticks that are not going to slip on you.

Don't know about other brands, but with spektrum it depends on which radio you get. Some come with relatively smooth stick tops, some (higher end) come with pointy ends. You can buy the spektrum pointy ends separately in two different lengths, if you ended up withe smooth ones.

Anyway, I like narrow pointy ends too.

I have big wide Futaba ends on my DX8. I had trouble keeping my thumbs on the stock ones.
