What's a good thickness for a pick that doesn't flex, and thin enough so you can alternate pick fast?

Also, what's the difference between a jazz pick and a normal triangle pick?
#3
I usually use Dunlop Tortex .88 or 1.00 picks... they're perfect I think...
#5
depends on what the pick's made of. celluloid picks, usually medium or thicker don't bend much at all. most nylon picks about .88 or above are pretty sturdy

I use 1.14mm dunlop picks (the PINK ones )

i find its best to play with the thickest you can. they dont break as easily and you have a much greater dynamic range.

when i play, my picks are thicker than the rhythm guitarist's and bassist's put together

I had a Dunlop 2mm pick. I loved it. I've lost it a good seven times now... Haven't found it the most recent time though. Should buy like 200

Dunlop Jazz III's or Jim Dunlop Big Stubbies in 3mm size. They are the best!

Well, if it's for guitar try Jim Dunlop's Jazz III. They're quite small, perfect for pinched armonics and for those who hold their pick with two fingers (at least to me .

OMG bassists don't use picks!!!

Just thought I'd beat someone to it. I really liked a heavy Fender pick i used once. Unfortunately I can't find it on guitarcenter.com so I can't tell you what kind they were.

yea jazz III's are great small and are pointed for accuracy and some ppl say its easier to play faster with them also if you find they are to small for u they make an xl version its the exact same but bigger

DONT USE THE JAZZ 3. Sure they amke you pick faster, but if you already ahve some picks at home and came home with a pack of jazz III's. you wont be abe to sue any other picks because it will seem like you're using a ****ing dish as a pick.i bought home a pack of jazz III about 5 months ago. i have about 30 picks new from 5 months ago

na, its hard at first, but after using jazz IIIs u can use other types every now and then. i would never use another pick on a regular basis though. anyways jazz III all the way. the most natural feeling pick i've used. moves alot of string so u get a full rich sound. dont use the small ones though, i tried for a while, felt like i was going to develop arthiritis

The color is just a thing dunlop uses so you know what thickness it is at a glance. It moves down the rainbow as they get thicker in the tortex series, most of the other colored series as well I think. Red is .5mm, orange .6 or so, yellow .73, green .88, blue 1.0, purple 1.14.
I personally can't use thick picks, don't know why but they just don't work for me. Unless it's a Jazz III I really can't go beyond 1.0mm. I used to use .88 tortex (green), then the Jazz III. These days I'm using tortex .73 (yellow), and they work perfectly for me. Not much flex, nice and thin, they last a while, and I prefer the tone I get out of them anyway.
I never had problems using regular picks while I was using the Jazz IIIs, unlike shtiming.
