    They’re slightly bigger than the EJ Jazz IIIs I used before.
    They wear like iron, and I drop them less.
    I’ve only started using them recently.

    Simply the best I've found. Size, shape, tone and grip. Dunlop Jazzone 204.

    @brookdalebill - do you know if they make a round tip version? I can't find one so I doubt it.

    I love these tortex jazz h1’s with the larger radius tip. Very mellow and full sounding with less pick noise. Lately I’m switching between these and my blue chip.

    1. Red Bear. I have a dozen or so of them, in different shapes and thicknesses. Very tortoise-like performance, and lots of cool colors. I've stopped buying other brands, pretty much, but I still order another Red Bear every now and then. @Shuster, they make a great thumbpick.

    2. Blue Chip. Very smooth off the strings, and very durable.

    3. V-Picks. My favorite is their Chick-n-Picker. They're a bit chirpy, but sometimes I like that.

    Honorable mentions: SurfPick, Hell, John Pearse, and the very hard wooden ones my son made (bottom left in the picture).

    I mostly use Fender heavies, but I’ve used Tortex, Dunlop, whatever.

    My wife cleaned out the junk drawer a while back, left these sitting on the counter for me

    Call me boring: Fender Mediums, either red, green or blue mother of toilet seat, for both acoustic and electric. Different from most, I use the shoulder rather than the point for a somewhat fuller sound.

    I use a bass pick, normal picks are way too small for my fat thumbs, these give me great control! 23431100006.MAIN.jpg
