I play for a long time the Gator 1.5 and 2.0 Pleks, before I had the Dunlop 500 in the same strength and before the Tortex in 1.0, but slipped easily from my fingers. The Gator show here a much better grip and do not self-employed. Normal play, it uses normal quickly, but a slide with the edge of Pleks quickly leads to grooves that make the Plek then sharp. But thanks to the large 72 bag, you can then quiet times often replace such a abgespieltes Plek. :-D The Plek produces a relatively soft sound, at least in comparison with the 1.0 Tortex.
