Maybe you and your buddy should go into the stick business. It seems like you've done more research than Vic Firth!

The only surprise on your list was maple. I hear pretty good things about them, lightweight, but maybe not lasting as long as the others.
The shaft of Maple holds well to rim riffs, but most of the wood's have issues at the tips. The tip of Maple feathers apart easy. Most of them look really good, but if you have knots of any kind, Apple, Cherry, Willow,Walnut they snap at the knots. It's real hard to find knotless fruit bearing woods.
