Currently, I am using the Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III Carbon Fiber Guitar Picks and they work great however when my arthritis flares up I definitively can use additional help with grip. Any suggestions for other brands etc....

No suggestions but a heads up!

I bought and fell I love with Dava picks! I love the way the grip felt but when it came to doing pick slides the pick would get stuck on the strings because of the way the grips are constructed!

I sort of solved this problem by drilling a hold right through the middle of the pick about a pencil width in circumference. It becomes skin against skin snd hence no more slippage!

Brain or Cat Tongue (from the Czech Republic)...same concept and available at L&M in various gauges.
I think I have had a "Cat Tongue" before if I remember correctly the grip was great but the thickness was a bit too much...
Thanks, Greco,....I need to call you soon as per last pickup swap:cool:
Thanks to everyone who replied, I really appreciate it!!

The irony concerning picks is, I only started using them approx 1.5 Yrs ago, prior, I preferred to finger pick even with an electric I never used a pick, unfortunately, arthritis got worse and finger picking became more difficult and I had to learn using a pick..the worst part is my finger picking is terrible now..haha
Oh well, one step forward two steps back, such is life!!

V-picks have a property that causes your skin to grip the plastic. It's a temperature and skin chemistry that just helps you grip them unusually well.

After playing for a few minutes I can open my index and thumb and the pick will hang vertically for 30sec +. Allows for very supple playing. Once you sprinkle the fact that the tone is also special and the speed is noticeably faster, you start to understand why the company is starting to take off.

Try the Ultex Jazz III. They don't have grip on them but are thicker which might fit better with your arthritis.
