    I use the exact same picks, but I use the black version, which have a little bit more grip...
    The Tortex picks also have some grip, but different...
    Try them both, and see what works for you!

    It's NOT the best, but the best for HIM.
    It'll always be a personal choice.
    Just go to a local guitar dealer and just grab a couple and check them out, to see what works best for you.
    (It normally doesn't take longer than half an hour)

    I usually play Jazz III picks, because thanks to the small size they're very accurate and it makes pinched harmonics a lot easier. But I use normal thin/medium plectra for acoustic chord work, because they sparkle more.

    SO I already have a couple of opinions with some personal arguments, just try for yourself and see what the goods and bads are in YOUR opinion.

    Greets, Sebas.

    :headbang: thanks for the great advice.... currently jazz 3 XL does work best for me... somtimes i just wonder why there are those who can shred with those normal size picks... doesn't it contradicts with the principle of economy movement and accuracy?:erk: :erk: :erk:
