    I recently grabbed some new picks that I REALLY like. I'm a big fan of Tortex and have been using the Tortex Wedge in 0.88 for a while and decided to give Tortex Flex picks a try. They sound and feel like a cross between standard Tortex and nylon and wear more like nylon - almost as good as Ultex. My one complaint is they don't feel as precise, especially when alternate picking - kind of like a Dava pick. They are also pretty inexpensive, so worth a try if you see them.

    Little easier to hold on to for me

    I was going to comment about my credit card pics and pic punch when I look in my hand and I am using a green Tortex this morning.

    I'm a no frills kind of guy. These are pretty much the only ones that I use.

    I like the Fender Celluloid picks a lot, but they wear too fast for me and make a mess. I still use celluloid for acoustics.
