I use to play my bass with fingers, but there is certain scenarios where it just would sound better with a pick. After testing a bunch of them, i chose these ones, because they are not too thin not too thick. On bass it gives me just a little of this punch wich is typical for picks but keeps the fat round sound I am used to play by my fingers. Beside that they feel very solid. They don't break too fast. If I wouldn't loose them everywhere, I guess they would hold for a pretty long time. There maybe could be a bit more grip, but maybe you would loose comfort by that. So yeah, all in all it is perfect. Especially compared to other brands.
