I used to use the regular green 0.88 "normal shaped" Dunlop Tortex picks until I spotted these and thought they would be fun to try out. Just like the regular ones, the grip is great. The bigger size seems to add to stability, and as an additional benefit, you get 3 tips on every pick. This is great if you tend to wear picks down (in my case when I pick hard on my bass guitar). Great alternative if you want to try something with a bit less regular shape!
