    I like and been using for a long time now the ultex .88 rounded triangle. They are just very comfortable for me.
    Not a big fan of the smaller pointed picks.

    I like Dunlop Primetone. Not pretty to look at but nice grip and sound.

    I wish I would've spent more time trying to get that hybrid style down- it really is the best method. I do kinda have my own thing though so that's always a plus. I just have a very tough thumbnail on my picking hand and that gets me close to a pick sound.

    Dunlop TIII 1.14. Has the Jazz III tip, but Tortex shape.

    Yellow Dunlop .73 Tortex. I've been through tons of picks. These just work for country and R&B.

    Jazz III for many years, have Ultex Jazz III and Ultex Jazz III 2.0 mm coming to check em out, on this guy's recommendation. Not that I'm a speed picker or seriously want to be, just looking to improve.

    I think the OP would like the John Petrucci Jazz III's, they are stiff and slick. I used them for quite a while but I change picks about every 6 months for some reason. I'm really liking the Dava Control or Rock picks for at least a year now.

    I went on a pick adventure years ago & after playing tons of picks my favorite is the Dunlop jazz iii Eric Johnson signature picks! They have a tone about them that I like & I like the grip the old style font provides!
