The Vic Firth SMJ Mike Jackson Signature marching snare sticks have a long neck taper for quick, responsive rebound off of the head, and a very thick shoulder to give you the most volume on standard and ping rimshots.
They've also got a reverse taper, which is pretty interesting - the stick is actually thinner at the butt than it is where you hold it. This design pushes more of the mass towards the front of the stick, which gives you more overall volume with each stroke.
