Ok so simple put it this is my favorite pick. First of all these sand paper coated picks just have the grip you will need if you have sweating hands like me ,atleast on gigs when your nervous. Also why dont all picks get made of this pink color because other picks are usually made from dark colors which i just can't find anywhere where i put them. Like if i drop my dark pick on top of my black cap i can't find it without flashlight. Frustraiting and pointless. Only bad thing i could think of these picks is that if you drop one under something its really annoying to get it out There because of that friction that sandpaper makes.
How many times (mid solo) usually has your pick flown out of those nimble fingers and shot across the stage, once?, twice? three times? Lets be honest, in a live gig once is once too many. In the past I've tried all the tricks, rubbed a pick with sand paper, got the drummer to stubb out his cigarette on it, tried marking it with my soldering iron, all to no avail. Now a simple solution, buy these picks. Even with the sweatiest hands I'd defy anyone to drop these picks (ok there'll still be someone who can) but these picks are designed for 99.9% of us guitar players who drop from time to time. Downside?...only one, if you play an acoustic without the soundhole covered and you drop it inside....well...you're on your own...lol
