Or do all professional metal guitar players use Dunlop Tortex .88mm picks? Y'know, the green ones?

A lot of Metal guys use them. I tried them because I found out that James and Kirk used them and I was a guitar noob. I thought I was so cool because I used Metallipicks.


Now I use them because I genuinely like using them.

He said Metal players.. Mick Thompson is not metal...

I'm a big fan of .73mm but I'm more of a blues guy than a metalhead.
I feel like I get the most dynamic feel out of the .73's, Jazz III's being my second choice.

On a side note: anybody ever use Ultex instead of the traditional Tortex?

when you play with thick strings on a 7string you need a thick pick to pick the strings properly.... I can't play with thin picks, they're just to flexible to provide the needed picking power!

....atleast that's why I use 1.0mm picks

good job ignoring it

They were the picks I got when I first got my guitar just because I liked the green color.
Now I like the way they feel so I continue to buy them.
I'm not a Bible-thumper anymore. Realized I had a brain in '09.

I like guitars, running, and math.

I use 3mm dunlop stubby's. A nice thick pick. I started using thin picks but once I started on really heavy picks, I find that I hate the scratchy tone of the thin ones.

Tortex 1.0 Blues FTW!! they are good for really digging in, but they have a bit of give for other stuff. i stared using them because this guy at my school who played guitar used them and i idolized him. now, i just play them because they feel right. i can't play with any other pick except for the 1.14 Purples. i've tried Jazz IIIs, but i hated them. i've tried many picks. Fender mediums, finger picks, metal picks, Stubbys, Gators, Speedpicks, Tortex Jazz, Tortex Sharp, Cattongue, Sharkfin and even that Jellyfish Pick (sucked). Tortex Blues are simply the best.
