    Whatever’s lying on the table. For general playing, Dunlop Gator Grip picks (1.5mm or 2.0mm). For faster, precise playing, I’ll go Dunlop Tortex Jazz IIIs (1.0mm)

    Hard to say, as I use a bunch on rotation and I kind of prefer them when the tip isn't "brand new pointy".

    At the moment, it's mostly that carbon fibre jazz thing or D'Addario Black Ice with a custom print for my band. (Never play without the blessing of the Aten)
    I had a phase where I was all about the bigger Tortex thingies but found my technique to get a bit clumsier with them.

    I have been using 2 mm Flowpicks for a bit over a year after like 30+ years of red nylon Jazz III.
    I tried a bunch of different pick sizes and material and ended up really liking the these. Great pick attack due to the pick thickness but also great control due to the bevels. I tried the 1.5 mm also but much preferred the 2.0 mm.

    My only negative is that I wish they were Jazz III size (They are Jazz III xl sized).

    I just ordered some of these: Ernie Ball Prodigy Picks (2mm)

    I think/hope/wonder if they are closer to Jazz III size.

    Curious to see if I will like these better than the flow picks.

    That's where I was.... and then I thought I'd try to mix it up a bit. I tried Dunlop Tortex Flex Jazz III Guitar Pick, 1.35mm... didn't like the lack of grip or bevelled edge.
    I've been trying the JPs recently and getting on well with them.

    Timely thread, I just had a new batch made up (the black ones). Black and blue are 1.0, purple is 1.14. XJJ jumbo jazz.
