They bend between your fingers
Klok' 08.01.2022
The softest part of the pick is right above the coloured "smile" - meaning away from the tip. The pick transfers the force from the strings to this part and makes this part bend more than the tip. So though the rubber part is in itself more grippy than other picks, the pick feels less stable when strumming hard. The bending makes it feel like the pick is trying to wiggle its way out of your grip ... or my grip anyway. Many others appear to rate these picks highly. I was disappointed in them. I guess it depends on what you want to use the picks for. I can not rate the durability, so I gave it a medium score. On a side note, though coloured in various ways, all the picks are of the same hardness.

D
can't complain about anything
Dai 01.07.2017
I play bass and due to the heavy gauge of the strings, the pick used to rotate. This obviously causes a lot of problems.

Enter Dava. What I like is not just that they don't slip, the way this pick is made, it bends quite a lot depending on where you hold the pick.

This is great, because the bend gives it a sticky feeling that you can only get when you play with your fingers but at the same time, it gives it the "ping" you can only get with a pick.

I know many people scoff at pick players and I used to do the same but playing with a pick on my fretless F bass has helped me intonate correctly due to the "ping" I can get from the picks.

After using this pick, I have not had to cross shop at all. There are different types of Dava but as long as you get the ones covered in black rubber, they all do the same. Some give more ping, others sound a little more fuller. But it's very subtle. The biggest difference is in the feel of the tip.

Surprisingly good
Jimsim 15.04.2020
Initially, when I saw how Dava grip described their picks as "lets you bounce between the feel of a soft gauge (rhythm) to a hard guage (lead) while playing!", I honestly do not expect much but I bought them anyways to be included in one shipment as a why-not moment.

Honestly, I am quite surprised! Usually I prefer thinner picks (0.05mm) to play rhythm due to personal comfort. These picks are thicker but surprisingly comfortable as compared to a normal pick with the same thickness.....for lead, you are supposed to grip harder. You could definitely feel the attack difference between strumming and picking lead - but not heaven and earth difference. BUT if you are into really thick pick for lead, this may not be what you are looking for. It is a bit more pricey for guitar picks but not stupidly expensive. An adequate addition to your arsenal if you have the budget.

VC
Best picks ever
Valerio C 04.08.2021
I do believe these are the best picks ever. Of course everyone will like different picks, but on a constructive and logistic point of view these Dava are spot on. The gummy grip doesn't just keep the pick firm in your hand, but also allows to "control" its stiffness thanks to it being elastic.
The only, small issue is that the point wears out, which is normal to every pick, but I find it changes the behaviour of these specific picks more than that of those which are full plastic.
