Red Dunlop Jazz III's are the way to go. And for acoustic I use whatever I have lying around, generally Dunlop matchpiks, .80 I guess.

Dunlop Copper picks (Hot Licks), 008s or 009s. Great picks, never break them, nice controlled attack. I've been using them for years, I can never use plastic again.

I usually play Dunlop Gator picks 0.88 or something like that.

I ordered some wooden picks once (www.woodenpicks.com) and they were really good - they're thin (around 1.0 I'd say) unlike most wooden picks I've seen which are sooo thick that I can't use 'em. Expensive, though.

Here are some of the picks I make, the first one is from a 1964 silver dollar, next is aluminum, brass, coconut,plexi-glass and ebony. I make them from alot of other materials, these are just some of the ones I have lying around, my guitar playing buddy's are constantly scooping them away from me :D

I hear you on those Ultex, Jeff. I had been using Tortex .73's for a while, and read about the Ultex on the FDP. Haven't decided between the 1.0 and the .73 yet. I know what you mean about the attack - I was really surprised by the difference.
