    my only gripe about them is that after a few shows or rehearsals they lose their sharp edge.


    Yeah, I hate that too. And I thought Ultex was the toughest stuff around. Bet in 5 years they'll have something the same thickness/flex that doesn't wear or break.

      After many years of ragged/fuzzy pick edges or torn picks I was IMMEDIATELY satisfied when I tried Ultex picks. I can't imagine a better pick material. They flex, they last, and they don't fray.

      I prefer the rounded triangle for the larger size (they don't get lost in my hand like teardrops). And as for the corners getting rounded, they do respond well to carpet sharpening technique. What else could you ask for?

                The sharps are great! They're like a magnet for strings. Which is awesome for leads but I eventually realized that pointed picks didn't feel right to me for rhythm. Have you noticed that at all or are you completely used to them?

                Yeah, I'm always experimenting with picks. It's cheap and fun.


                For me they're doing the trick for rhythm too. I just couldn't be happier with the sharps. I probably wouldn't have tried them if I didn't run across your post way back when, so thanks!

                    I also really like the Telefunken 2MM picks which are the replicas of these. I don't think you have to break them in as they are graphite which is very very hard. They also last forever. I've been playing the same pick for a year with not a dent. Difference in graphite is mainly in dynamic range it seems.

                      I just bought a couple bags of the Adamas and they are different from the telefunken replicas,barely. They have more pop and are louder with less dynamic range. I think I might prefer the telefunken. I guess I didn't remember them quite right. For feel the adamas I like more(notice how Anastasio never loses grip). The telefunken are noticably quiter with less pop. The differences between the two and the 2MM gators are minimal though.
