dependable
28.03.2016
I've been using these picks (or the Fender counterpart) for the past 10 years and it's a dependable pick. Initially I started off with the green one and then tried all of them out (from thinnest to this one), and I've settled for the 1.14mm because it's durable and because, apparently, I like rigid picks. The light ones have always irritated me because they bend against the strings.

I usually play them flipped to the side (with the pointy side towards the bridge) and very slightly angled, which gives a nice dark tone and the pick doesn't get 'stuck' in the strings. It also makes pinch harmonics easier for me.

I've used them successfully for shredding on an electric as well as on acoustic guitars. They work great for complicated strumming/picking and they are very durable in the face of heavy acoustic guitar strings.

They do tend to slip off every now and then from between your fingers, especially if you're a bit sweaty, but not too much. I don't think I've dropped one while playing sober in the past 7 years or so.

Overall, this is a very dependable pick.

i've tried so many picks
Diablo, 20.01.2020
I have tried so many guitar picks that I don't remember them all either, but I know that I have never felt so good as with Tortex.
Obviously the choice of the pick is a matter of personal taste, however there are characteristics such as resistance to use that are good for everyone.
The last picks that I have abused of are the Ibanez Paul Gilbert, which, however, have always worn out too quickly. In these picks I found the same handling, a little less peak (but very little) and a significantly longer duration. I highly recommend them for those who use alternating picking on electric guitar a lot, and also for acoustic guitar they give satisfaction, even if in that case there are different choices also depending on the type of timbre you want to get

Good but too thick for my taste (bass).
TrEr, 19.09.2019
I got these for bass. I rarely use a pick on bass and when I do I normally used the thinner yellow Dunlops. I wanted to try some thicker ones but I much preferred the tone I got with the thinner yellows. These thicker ones made the sound too thin and clanky for my taste. I also got a better, more defined attack with the yellows. I had to play extremely hard to get a tight, defined "click" with these purple ones. With my normal style of picking the attack sounded more like "cloink".

Don't get me wrong, they're good quality picks, just not for me. Maybe if I was in a punk band, played REALLY hard and needed a clanky sound to cut through. For a fuller, warmer bass sound I would recommend going with a slightly thinner pick.

Flexibility:

Thickness (1.14mm) and material of the picks grant them a high stiffness, but do not make them inflexible.

Grip:
The sides are slightly coarse giving them some grip for starters, which can but doesn't have to be enhanced by further sanding, unless you are playing longer gigs or sweat a lot.

Tip:
The pointed ("sharp") tip allows for high precision runs.

Size:
With a size of about 1.14" (=29mm) from bottom to tip, the picks aren't small, but unless you prefer mini-picks you will be fine.

Tone:
As the "tone" section is often rather a "voodoo"-section I'd like to limit my review to the statement, that flexibility/sharpness/hardness allow "tight" pick-attack.

Recommendation:
Recommended to try for everyone who's not into fat or mini picks. Price is fair.
