I’ve tried them all and these are still the best! Yes, I’ve tried them all and these are still the best!
I’ve tried the original jazz iii red black and ultex, the ultex 2mm, wegen picks, gravity acrylic and gold, blue chip, dava, piglet, buffalo horn and all in between. One thing I’ve learnt from the boutique picks and from classical guitar technique is that bevelling the pick for right or left hand speed both opens up the sound and reduces resistance massively. All you need is a nail file. With that in mind, my shredding takes me through one of these fellas every 3 days, so durability only gets 4/5. However the size along with the stiff quality and bevel makes for a rapid loud and super ergonomic and economical pick that I think is still the best and the others still copy. The ultex XL then the nylon come after this top pick. Like I said,I’ve tried them all and jazz iii xl stiffo are still the best!
