for the longest time I struggled with finding the right picks to play with and I never had some that i liked using with guitar and bass so I always had to have two different kinds, thats until I started using these, they got a great grip and are perfect for both instruments (i like them on the uke too but I don't use it that often) I never broke one and I play pretty hard with my right hand (thats my picking hand) I'm not really sure how one would break them seen that I haven't even managed to bend one
These are in my opinion the greatest gripping picks in the world. With the serious crosshatching going on, these bad boys stay put! My only gripe (ha) I have is the processing is a bit sloppy - some of the bevels have leftover plastic hanging off that is sharp to the touch. You shouldnt have to "mod" brand new picks just to use them!
