I went pickless for a while. I went back to a pick after I tried out a V-pick (the one that looks like a Jazz III). I've noticed that since I went back to a pick, I really do a ton of hybrid picking. I sometimes practice without a pick and then use one when I'm playing out or with others.
I have that same pick, and its a great sounding pick on electrics (acoustics not so much). When I get back into electric playing a little more it'll probably be the main reason I'm using a pick. Too bad they are like $4 a pick a quite hard to find if you drop them.
