What's your favorite pick material? I just want to get some feedback on what and why everyone is playing with. I did some searching on the forums and couldn't find too much. Let's talk about it.

I've never heard of half these materials. You didn't include tortex and I don't know what Jazz III XLs are made of so I just put "Doesn't Matter".

I answer "doesn't matter" cause there's no "other" option.

Actually I liked the Dunlop Gator picks, don't the material, but are the one with the gator on it or the turtle.

Tortex

EDIT: isn't Delrex what the tortex are made of, I'm almost positive

EDIT 2: tortex is the original form of Delrex. Delrex was made by another company to duplicate the Dunlop Tortex material

Nylon for me. Nothing else has really worked out for me too well.

Not voting cause poll is broken without Tortex or Carbon Fiber.

Tortex is made of Delrex

Actually Tortex is the original, and Delrex is what other companies call Tortex because of Dunlops pat.

Ultex. Feels good, relatively grippy (could be grippier though) and it sounds awesome. I am itching to try the Dunlop Max Grips (carbon fiber?) though, heard that they are good.

Ultex Jazz IIIs.

They grip better than the original Jazz IIIs, and I prefer the sound to the Eric Johnson signature Jazz IIIs. The Ultex 2.0 has a snappier, brighter tone, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
