The material of the JP Flows seems to wear more slowly than the transparent ones of the same gauge, and I think the attack sounds a bit different, too. I might try the Andy James ones and see if those are any different...
I've yet to try anything pricier (Red Bear/Blue Chip/whatever) because I wear picks out like an angle grinder and I doubt it'd be more economic. (I landed with the JP Flows after wearing one Ultex Sharp 2mm to an unusable twisted point by half-way through the first song in the set at a gig, getting peeved and trying different picks again.)
I like the Ultex 427 Jazz III 2.0 as well, but find them a bit small for metal rhythm. After getting back into playing in bands I found that my trusty red Jazz IIIs just weren't big enough.
