I need picks for a fast gallop rythm, I hear 1mm Ultex is the way to go. So far I've only played Tortex picks and I was wondering if there's that big of a difference. Any Ultex fanatics here? :]

just try them out and you'll see what you like.
I prefer 0.60 Tortex but I play power chords and this kind of stuff.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

What the hell?

Are the pics colour coded or something for rigidity or what?

Seriously this would be helpful, i use 1mm Black Nylon Jim dunlop picks, and some awesome Clayton USA pick 0.94mm thick and i have no idea what the difference is.

EDIT: Oh cool the clayton is made of of ultem? is that good.

Incase you hand't worked it out, yes i am a complete noob.

Ultexes are better, IMO, but Tortexes are slightly more grippy. Ultex never bends either.
