Im 6,5' (196cm) and when I was younger I could pick up a regular basketball with one hand. The Dunlop 213 sits loosely on the upper 2 phalanges of my middle finger and is supported by the index finger next to it, which is as it should be. I use it for Blues rock riffing on an old Ibanez solid body e-guitar with relatively low action. It's got some weight to it, which feels great and makes it a joy to use. I bought two, (just in case) and should I ever loose them I'll buy a Dunlop 213 again. Great product, especially if you have large hands.
