    That's what I've been using for that last hour. Dunlop Jazz III.

    These are what I am currently trying. I like the ultex for the bright tone but I am trying the yellow and red dunlops. The jazz III's are nice but I like a size between them and the usual size. Sooo, I shave the tops off and drill holes for grip. Works for me!

    A friend of mine picked up the Agate pick in Italy when he was there.
    It's hand made and is dimpled for your finger and thumb.

    I use it when I want notes to project... it has a lot of mass and sounds the note quite loudly when you want it to. The attack is smooth and quick. Overal a nice asset.
    I believe the cost was around $20. To have it shipped would probably double the cost but I'm not sure.

    I really gotta take the plunge. Everyone who tries these says the same thing.

    I used to use the Tortex picks but they spin. I was in Welland a couple of months ago and found some picks called Surepick. It's like a hard gel with a raised logo. Loved the red mediums. Turns out they're American and don't export to Canada anymore. So, when I went to Vegas at the end of May, I went to Sam Ash and bought what they had in stock, which was only 3 boxes (18 picks) :(

    Yeah I have to say they are very good picks, because of how small they are, the pick alone helps straighten out a lot of bad techniques, and makes playing more accurate and sharp. Not too mention the smallness of them make pinch harmonics easier, that being said I found that pinch harmonics happen more frequently by accident since they're tiny. There are a lot of benefits with them. Anyone who shreds should play with jazz III's in my opinion. Lately though I've been playing a lot of acoustics so I've been playing with the dunlop match piks, I love the grip on them. I have problems with picks slipping, but the grip they have on them is perfect, and would defintiely be a recommendation for anyone having a similar problem, great thickness as well...

    I use those Dunlop aligator picks. Brand new they almost have 'fur' on them but when that wears off all that's left is beautiful deep sweet tone. There's no going back for me.

    I recently started using them--but for some reason while I love them when playing my Iceman and my Mustang, while I prefer Tortex picks for my Les Paul and my Ibanez AF95.

    The Gator Grips you mention here have beveled edges, the Tortex picks do not.
