                      Just switched over to thinner picks like those and I'm not surprised that he came out with those.

                      Feels far less clumsy trying to play fast and when ya wanna get a little more volume, just grip a little tighter

                        I've normally used Tortex, but I'd like to try out a full size Ultex pick. All I've ever tried where the Jazz III's.

                        BTW timjtitus, Our guitar/amp setups appear to be very similar.

                              Hm. I have some Ultex picks laying around. I might give a try next time I plug in and see if I like them more than the Tortex versions of the Jazz IIIs that I'm such a big fan of.
