i like whatever pick... i usually buy dunlops but ive tried those... they are alright... feels like a regular pick to me... you shouldnt be too picky on which picks you like... it is a waste of time...

"You will play better and sound better with V-Picks guitar and mandolin picks. "

quite the claim :/

all picks are different, some have different sounds in the way they attack the string and allow it roll off, some stay in your hands better depending on your perspiration, and some will compliment your picking style better than others.

just buy a ton of different ones, and see which one feels right.

Play better?
Yes.

Sound better?
Meh...

I've been on and off v-picks for a while.
I hate, hate, hate playing with them. I would never play a gig with them, I'd rather use a quarter. That said, they have become a staple of my practice routine.
They literally force you to play cleaner, smoother, and more controlled.

Some people love them, but personally, I think they're good for technique only.
Worth trying, if only for that.
YMMV.

Play better?
Yes. or at least I think so

Sound better?
Yes, or at least I find them more punchy then a 1.5/2.0mm tortex

Since I bought a set of these picks I haven't used anything else anymore, those tortexes and stuff don't do it for me anymore.

they also wear a lot less, (and I mean alot). i'm still on my first set, and have been using em for about a year now. The ones I use are the Acoustic/Screamer (same thing) and the Large Pointed. I also tried the Shredder, but it's not my cup of tea.

So yeah, I recommend em.

They're all right, you can kind of play faster, but I don't like the plucky sound they make and they can't do pinch harmonics well.
Wait.
