What's your favourite?

A few minutes ago I'd have said the 1mm blue ones. But I tried out the next size down (green) and I can play so much better! I find I can pick a lot faster, yet still keep control.

I got some V-Picks.

I don't care for them. They sent me the wrong ones, and plus, they are way to thick.

I think I paid close to 30 dollars for 4 picks.


I have always been interested to try out some Tortex picks. I have never gotten around to buying any though.

Oh man, I love mine.

Diamond, Collosal, Shredder and the one that is supposedly an upgraded Jazz III. I really dig mine.

Woah, just Googled those V picks, they're huuuge! I'll try one out one day but I'm sticking to my tortexes for now

1.14mm

I don't like the feel of anything thinner than that for some reason. Though I've never seen a pick between 1.14mm and 2mm. Are there any?

I love my green ones, perfect amount of give and also sturdiness.

However - they wear away far too quickly for me.

What about 1.50? thats what i use the little purple f**kers

UG Mods really have no sense of humour.....

I use the smallest v-picks, the one about the size of the Jazz III, whichever one that is. Wouldn't trade them for anything!

I use the purple ones on acoustic though. I always break picks on acoustic due to the nature of my playing (usually trying to fill halls with a cheap acoustic with no onboard pickup), so I just needed the thickest crap I could find.

Seriously which nub doesn't use Tortexes :P

I use 1.00, but I have 2 left and after that I'm switching to 1.14.

I've been using Fender Mediums for a while and that haven't quite been doing me justice.

I've been looking at either Orange or Yellow Tortexes, I like the thickness of Fender Mediums, so which one is the closest to those, Orange or Yellow??
