    The Dava's kept breaking on me because I like to hold the back of the pick when I'm strumming, but the material and shape were really nice.

    The mixed pack from L&M is pretty cool.

    Five different designs.
    The smaller jazz type I'm using, a larger one like it,
    a couple of different nylon picks and one with a metal tip.
    I looked at the last one and only thought that I'd be changing strings soon.

    A slight necro...

    Picks are like .25 to $1 each and that's pretty cheap compared to strings or even coffee/donuts so to me, durability is not a consideration as long as they last a playing session. What I've noticed is a big difference in tone and I have a handful of different picks to use depending on my mood and the song I'm trying to butcher with my playing.

    My favourite by a slight margin are Dunlop carbon fibre jazz III picks because they sound very even, have great grip, play fast, and show no wear whatsoever... essentially its the pick of the gods.

    But I also like the Steve Clayton acetal picks for their ultra-bright buzzy sound, Dunlop stubby's for their "round" sound, etc. Even the tone sucking Traynor delrin picks I bought at L&M on a whim serve a purpose by saving me from palm muting (I'm not kidding... not much anyways).
