I must confess to being a stubby user for more years than I care to remember. Personally I'm a fan of the "chunky" pic and the great thing about stubby's is the little dimple for your thumb which means they don't fly out of your hand in the middle of your showcase guitar solo and leave you standing blankly for 16 bars. If Mr. Dunlop is reading this "Jim can you do them in white please, so if it does fly off I can still find it on a dark stage floor" I personally use the 2mm as the 3mm are a bit toooooo stiff for me (ooh err matron) The tips do wear down after a while even this size but if times are really hard I would imagine that you may possibly be able to re-point them?? Maybe some youtuber with too much time on his hands has the answer to that? All in all the best guitar pick in my very humble opinion.
I got these to experiment with thicker/sturdier picks, and it was a success. These are now my go-to picks. Initially I was a bit scared that such a big pick would be unweildly, and if you have the same concern, I must insist that you try such a pick out. Maybe you'll like the feel of it, like I did.
I'd been using the heavy Dunlop Tortex 1.14 for 10 years or so up to now, and picking up a big stubby was a revelation. I have a much better grip on them. They work great with hybrid picking. They sound a bit brighter, what with being a nylon pick, but I've gotten used to it.
I recommend the 24 pack because I, at least, wear the tip out rather quickly (it's noticeably less pointy after about two weeks of use).
I know these are very thick picks but they feel great in the hand and give you total control over your contact with the strings. I mainly play classic rock and blues with a mixture of clean tones and various degrees of crunch and over drive. You actually learn to use a lighter touch with these as the pick transfers all the energy from you hand to string so, for me at least, my playing became a lot more dynamic and when you dig in these really bring out all those harmonics. I use them on acoustic guitar also, again with a lighter touch from the right hand.
