    What is it?

    Mines the Herco Flex 75 (Silver). I found a vintage Herco from the 70s and I lost it. It was my favorite guitar pick. Jim Dunlop made Hercos so those are what I use today.

    I have a clear blue-green pick with a palm tree on it and 3 holes drilled in the top for grip. Medium thickness, really stiff.

    I use Dunlop Delrins at 1.5. Pretty violet color. I'm all into pretty.

    Alice steel picks for me. Thin but stiff with a slight flex factor.

    That portrait is really cool.

    My POD changes all the time, but currently it's my Blue Chip TD40. Waiting on a couple Red Bears.

    Jazz III's for me too, but I use the XL's the one's that are actually the size or a regular pick, not the tiny ones. They are my pick of destiny...

    I think this is the last day that V-Picks is offering a free pick if you email and request one. The offer is over on TGP.

    I used to like the white Dunlop Tortex sharps, I think they're 1.5mm, but have been using the 2mm Dunlop Ultex sharps lately.

    Just the other day I got a great deal on some pickboy Pos-a-Grips, made of some carbon/nylon alloy. They might be a little thin for me at 1.0, but I really like them.
