Did we do this poll already? I can't remember...

For acoustic I like the sharp attack of a brand new .73 mm Tortex. For electric I'll go to the Tortex if I really need some bite but otherwise I pretty much always use 1.14 mm Dunlop 500s -- they have an edge I find very versatile.

man I love the dunlop Jazz II's. I have yet to try the jazz III's but they seem awesome too...I think its just a difference in the tip pointyness....
I used to use a typical shaped pick and half an hour after using a Jazz III I threw the other picks out, lol.

I can play much faster with them 'cause of the sharp tip, the thickness, and they don't slip from sweat because of the raised text on both sides... makes pinch harmonics easier to achieve 'cause the size of the pick is about half that of a typical one... among many other things, they rock.

I've always liked the old style celluloid (plastic) picks. The Fender shape works for me.

I like the durability of nylon but I prefer the sound of the plastic.

I buy them by the gross with my name on them (for kicks).
