I've heard great things about them for a long time, so I finally got some and noticed that they're a bit too small and not meaty enough for me - not much to grab on to so that I can have optimal control. Plus Its really uncomfortable for me to play fast with them.

Do I just need to get used to them?
Does anyone agree?
Does anyone disagree, if so why?

I'm not too concerned about it, since I have my amazing ultexes and tortexes.

About the size you'll get used to it soon, about the hardness you should try tortex Jazz, same shape, more grip and different gauges.
personally I use yellow or green tortex, sanded into three-tip, jazz sized picks, and I love them, I think they should be mass produced

I think it all boils down to personal preferences, style of play and also on ur finger size etc., however, the pros of this pick (according to me) are the foll:
1) Yes, they are small.. and this makes sure that only a very small portion of it sticks out from between the fingers, .. this leads to better control and better chances of producing harmonics.

2) Try to play some fast riffs on the low E, and u would know the difference, the Jazz III does not bend , watever ur string gauge is,...

3) the sharp edge allows for more precise picking esp while shredding.

However, these do NOT fare so well, while strumming. So i wouldnt suggest this for serious rythm playing.

I use Ultex picks. I tried a Jazz III and I was like... wat. It's too small for me, I ended up using more of my finger as a pick than the actual pick.

Keep trying new ones. Eventually you'll find one that just seems to fit just right.

Thanks, I'll try sweeping with em tomorrow, I figured that the jazz IIIs would be good for lead stuff when I got them, but I'm naturally more rythm oriented, so when I noticed they weren't very good for rhythm I didn't even try to use them for leads...but I will tomorrow!
