    Made a change from the Jazz III to the XL version

    And so far I'm much happier

    I really do enjoy the carbon fibre max grip Jazz III, amazing pick, but a friend left his XL Jazz III round my house the other day. I picked it up and it just felt right. I haven't picked up any of the little ones since.
    Recording. Mixing. Mastering. Editing. Re-Amping.

    I actually went the other way. The Jazz III picks were a little too tiny for me, but i liked the tip and feel of it otherwise. I started using the XL ones, and loved them. Still have them around, i think. At least i hope i do. Unless i've lost them. I hope i haven't.

    Anyway, a bit further down the line, i end up going to the Ultex Jazz III picks. Loved those so much, and they weren't available in XL at the time, so i just got used to the smaller size. Now i use the carbon fibre Max Grip Jazz III you mentioned, and i looooove it!

    If they made an XL version of this thing, i don't know what i'd stick with...

    Love the carbon fibre ones. Haven't tried the XL. I saw Dream Theater many years ago at the Orbit Room for free back when Pull Me Under was the new single. Petrucci threw one pick that night and he threw it to me. Probably because I spent the whole show starring at him fucking dumbstruck. Had never tried a Jazz III before. That dude changed my life for the better. Still keep that one in the JPM case for good luck.

    I picked up the XLs on a recommendation from a friend and the regular JIIIs have felt too small ever since. I dont see how anyone can use them and it seems like you barely have any plastic to actually pick with

    I use the regular III's, i find that the tip wears off quick. I havent tried the XL yet.

    I don't think I've ever had a J3 tip wear out on me yet. At least, by the time I lose it

    I've been using the XLs for a while now. Great picks. Too bad nobody around here carries them.
