do they make jazz pick in larger size?

Hey guys, I love the sharp tip(playability) of the jazz III, but its way too small and the size of the dunlop tortex .88(the green one), but the tip is way to dull for me. Do they make a pick with these two "mashed" together?

Tortex Ultex Sharps would do the trick,
or any sharp Tortex pick for that matter

I switched from Jazz III XLs to Ultex Sharp 1.40s, don't really need those Jazz picks anymore. I like the feel of these picks much more, somehow smoother when playing arpeggios. Oh and soloing in general feels better. Can't say much for rhythm playing, thickness being pretty much the same. However, these Ultex sharps are without the grip that Jazz III offers, but I really didn't need it anyway, I never sweat that much. If I drop a pick, I'm just clumsy or really tired.

Never seen the XLs

I use the IIIs for a few years, now I'm kinda moving away from them, I think I still can play better shred stuff with them but I prefer the tone of more normal rounded tips now, and the larger picks are better for rhythm stuff, for me anyways. I also used to sharpen the tip a bit on normal picks with sandpaper, that was pretty good too, almost better than jazzIIIs in a lot of ways. My favorite shred pick is the small teardrop gibson or fender heavy, they have a pointy tip but way smoother feel and tone, but they wear out in a couple of hrs.
