It's all about the tone you want. Thinner picks produce a "thinner" or "twangy" sound, while thick picks produce a "fat" or "thicker" tone. I like a nice middle ground gauge. It's really what you prefer and what feels comfortable. There is no best size.

That's nothing. My pick has speed holes so I can downpick at 3000bpm.

I use 2mm Stubbys.

yeh but clear picks are easier to lose, while red picks are easier to spot so therefore

Every knows bigger is better. If your gf says otherwise she's just trying to make you feel better about... oh 'pick'! with a 'P', uh, forget what I said.

depends on the sound you're looking for. Thinner picks flex more when they hit the string so the sound is different - experiment and find what you like. Depending on what you're playing you may want to change picks for different songs too.

i like medium, firm but not too hard to strum

I see green 0.82 is beating red 0.78 in the poll, but does 0.04 of a mille make a difference...

I Like Dunlop Tortex .73mm. And personally Color doesnt matter to me, I have yellow picks now, but i dont care. I would pick red for a color to prefer though.

I prefer thicker picks for picking and plucking quicker, but picking a thicker pick to pick with holds not wit if you like to pick with slimmer picks. Slimmer picks pick quick, but I like the "click" of those thicker picks. You can pick middle-width picks too.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

I gotta say, anything inbetween .50 and 1.00 works for me.
