I don't have a true favorite, but if I did, it wouldn't be any of those.

i like the gator grips

i don't drop them as much and instead of serrating they wear in a more even fashion which means i don't have to dump them after one playing session

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Each is different than the other. It's like asking "what color?". The answer won't mean much. You need to figure out your own preference.

I've been using green .88mm Tortex for decades I recently tried the Ultex and like them as well.

OP should have let us pick more than one choice.

My Arkansas pick is some kind of steel.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

My wife went on ebay and got me a guitar pick made of brass with the Starfleet logo stamped on it. I love it, but I stick to nylon... preferably with a grip so it doesn't fly away from my finger tips.

I've been using Nylon .88 for... um... 15 years. I think. I've fiddled around with thickness here and there, but mostly have stuck with .88. I do have other kinds of picks just to pick up and play around with for a change of feel. But, I went with Nylons because I liked the grip on them, I like the feel of them, and I don't wear them out. Not saying that will be the case for anyone else. I was cracking and chewing up picks left and right until I started using the Nylon picks. Didn't help that when I started playing the nearest music store was an hour away... so, picks were a precious commodity.

Then buy some and try them. I just ordered 10 of them off ebay for a buck. What have you got to lose?
