Have used the Dunlop grey nylons for years in various thicknesses.. virtually indestructible.
I mostly use these.
Some with added anti slip sticker...(...no dirt! )
I bought a bunch of the dunlop variety packs, put them in a bowl, and intentionally tried to aleays grab a different pick each time I played.
Nowadays I find myself digging around for the purple .73 gator dunlop picks.
Those or the ultex .73's
I really like that Stubby but stopped using it for anything but clean tones, recently. I've found that it has a *chirp* to it with OD and distortion which is noticeable when I wear headphones.
I've wondered if this has to do with my technique and have worked at trying to alter it, but it's not anywhere near as present when I use my V Picks emerald and not there at all with the Blue Chip TD45. So I'm not using the Stubby as much as I used to, nowadays.
I love the other two picks, so I'm not upset about it...but if there's any advice I can get here regarding how I might alter my technique, I'd appreciate it. The Stubby is a great pick and it's inexpensive. Win win there...
I've been on the acrylic bandwagon for a few years now. I alternate between V-picks Tradition UL and Gravity Classic Standard .77 or .90mm. I like the tone of acrylic picks and they stick nicely in the fingers so I can relax my hand a bit more.
One of these?
That has all the marks of an OHP.

I like the 2.6mm Chicken Picks from the Netherlands.
I'm too cheap to pay for blue chip picks but I like to give my Tortex picks this treatment
Blue Chip TAD 80
Used heavy picks for years, just got back into playing again and now using thin picks, no particular brand (just dumped out my jar of them and started fussing about). I'm kinda ham fisted with the strum so the thin ones give a compression like feel to me and make me focus more when picking single notes.
Thin picks sound better imho.
I've been using Pyramid strings for years now, more recently I started using their picks, Extra Heavy. Shaped like the regular Fender pick, but has a nice defined attack and warm round tone. I use the "shoulders" not the point.
Fender 351 medium. I like them even more after they've run through the clothes dryer a time or two.
Number one preference is Primetone .96, but I can also be happy with a purple gator grip .96 or a blue Tortex 1.0.
I switch between the red Dunlop Jazz III XL, a white Clayton 1.26mm "Danny Gatton" style, and an orange (Medium) Fred Kelly Slick Pick thumb pick depending on the given style of music I'm playing.
I just started using medium and heavy picks after years of only thin...quite a change. Today I received these in the mail:
And I've ordered some wood, bone and horn picks to try as well. Collect them all, trade them with your friends.
Large Fender heavy or large Gibson heavy, mostly.
Oh Heck Yah! it's gotta' be a Dunlop Orange 60.mm for slide playing on a guitar.
For lap steel strung up with GHS Precision Flats .013-054 , it has to be without question, the Flow Jumbo 2.5 mm, ......... nah I'm just joking I use the
Orange for every thing my bad.
This one for years
