Absolutely amazed at the quality and playability of these picks! I have been a strict user of Tortex .50s for the last 8 or 9 years and thought I would never switch. I try out new picks from time to time but up until now, nothing had even come close to comparing to the Tortex.
However, I have always been a HUGE fan of James Hetfield and was very curious to try out the Black Fangs for quite some time and when the opportunity arose, I took it. And boy am I happy I did! These picks are AMAZING!
The picks are made of ultex which I never considered to be any different from tortex but I was wrong! These picks have the PERFECT amount of grip on them - not too much, not too little - to ensure maximum comfort while playing. But the biggest stand out to me when trying out these picks was the fact that the point of the pick is slightly contoured all the way around and provides complete ease of playing, no matter what type of tune you are playing!
This combined with the fact that I think Ultex may in fact be indestructible makes these picks my new go to pick from now on! I played some very fast and heavy tremelo-based songs while trying the pick out the first time and it looks as though it has never even touched a guitar! Amazing! Considering the price, you have nothing to lose! Give em a try! :)
