for those who have used these picks, is the end point fat? because the Fender pick i have right now is really really to thin, i want something a little fat so i just nudge when i pick. I dont like having to dig my pick against the strings, thank you for any help.
LOL

i use them.
the fender style picks havea rounded point, and the xl's have a actual pointy point.
its a heavy pick so it wount take much effort to hit the strings.
try one at the local store.

If you mean the Jazz 3 XL then i love them, i just bought a pack, and they make you play a little faster (IMO) but i just like picks like tht. so try them out
#4
i did get them, they are so much better compared to my Fender picks. It took like me like 5 minutes to get used to them. Now regular sized picks like the fender feel bad.
LOL

jazz III's are those the little red guys? i love em.. fantastic for shredding and they almost sound cleaner when you play. (less string noise/and scraping)

whenever i find em, i usually buy a few bags of em

I prefer the stubby 2.0's. They have a smoother tone, and don't grab the string quite as much.

It's a matter of personal preferance though. The Jazz III's are great picks, I just prefer the stubbies.

I use Jazz III's and I think they're awesome, but I don't use them when I strum. My fingers end up getting caught in the strings so I use the regular-shaped Tortex picks.
