    I've never wore a "brain" pick smooth, the edges start to go, but not the grip. brainpic.jpg

    Intune GripX Jazz Picks - I think they are Dunlop Gator Grips (private labeled for print). I use the yellow .73mm.

    Man.. I could write for hours about picks! Indeed, I'm considering forming the International Plectrum Fanciers Association (IPFA). If there was a fire in my house at home and I could only save THREE picks from my jar of about 200 pick types, it would be the Dunlop Ultex Jazz III (small and XL), and the Primetone Jazz III. The Black Petrucci Signature Primetone is great too, but too similar to the Ultex Jazz III small, so I'd have to let that one burn. All of the above are super-grippy, but for me the most important thing is the finish on the edge of the pick - some have little ridges where the moulding isn't quite accurate, and that totally changes the tone. Ultex has totally smooooooth edges. Nice.

    I like the looks of those, especially the pointed tips. I have some ULTEX like that. I don't like Jazz IIIs, but the points do offer some benefit.

    0.73mm for yours truly, too. Not that long ago I reverted to the Fender Mediums of my youth after randomly picking one out of a drawer one day. I loved it...again. Apparently, 0.73mm is where I'm supposed to live. :D

    I like the ESP picks with the kinda sandpaper-like logos and designs. But recently, I've also been using bone picks by pickboy, which are sculpted on both sides to fit your fingers. No idea if they come left handed.

    Yep. Ultex is my favorite and they don't slip.

    V picks aren’t bad. I think they claim you won’t drop them, but of course you can. But they do become kinda grippy after they warm up which considering they are smooth is not bad. I’m sure there are grippier ones out there, but I’ve gotten used to them.

    Cheers

    Those look just like Dunlops or Hercos. Anything special about 'em?

    Don't think I've ever had one wear out, I usually lose them 1st.

    2F149579-FF37-4FFB-BC00-0D2A2BEB85A2.jpeg Winspear Instrumental picks is all I use now. I started on the cheaper Jazz III XL size standard (bottom middle left ) which actually gets grippier the more you play! Just got a pack of the top line luxury picks, in the 6 different materials he constructs them from, to try. Definitely recommended!

    Fender Heavy for years. I tried a Blue Chip TD 50 and I was hooked. Bought 2 years ago and they haven’t worn at all that I can tell. No slippage. I use them for electric and acoustic.
