I don't see the holes listed as an option when ordering. Where did you get yours?
If you select 2mm or thicker, the grip hole will show up as a clickable option. I guess it's hard to do on thinner picks, or makes them too weak.
Ah I see it now, thanks!
I used to drill holes in my V Picks but then I found Gorilla Snot and the holes are no longer necessary.
Fender Medium/ Dunlop Jazz III
I was married to the Dunlop Tortex/Star 1.14, but I have been cheating with a Clayton .80
I've used Dunlop .88mm Tortex picks for 20 years. They reason I kept them was they didn't wear down like celluloid.
I also dug Jazz III's but they were small and I would drop and loose them like crazy.
I found a package of Ultex picks that Dunlop gave me years back and REALLY dig them. The material grips well, doesn't wear out quick and has the attack of a Jazz III.
I think I'm converting after 20 years.
If you record acoustic in the studio, I would highly suggest trying different gauges and materials. They are like an eq and compressor built in one.
I just recently changed my pick.
I now use picks made from Buffalo bone.
I thought the whole "expensive pick/magic material" stuff was a load of crap - someone gave me a bone pick and the sound difference is IMMEDIATE and VERY noticeable.
The bone pick sounds slightly fuller. Going back to the plastic, derlin or celluloid picks and I can immediately hear the sound becoming "scooped", or missing some mids and girth.
I HATE buying these picks because they are so expensive, but for the best sound, I'm sold.
Think I'll order a few Gravity picks tonight. Any recommendations? I'm thinking two classics and two Razers with different sizes and thickness.
Herco Flex 50 (Gold ones), and just started really liking Dunlop Max-Grip .73 (Grey). Used to use Jim Dunlop USA Nylon .88's (Dark Grey)
Purple Dunlop gator grip .96mm for electric
Wegen M150 (white) for mandolin and acoustic guitar
Dunlop Ultex 1.14
Fender Heavy Confetti
Fender Medium Confetti
Keep coming back to the Herco Flex 75
I'm stuck on the 3mm size. Once you get ahold of such a thick pick there is no going back. I really like the Razer and Classic.
Timber Tones Jazz tones black horn for me
Dunlop Ultex .60 or .73 depending on the guitar.

Pickboy vintage classic white 1.00mm. Sometimes 1.20mm.
Timber tones makes the buffalo bone picks I've been using!
the horn I thought wore a little quickly, where the bone so far doesn't show much wear, and sounds approximately the same. If you can you might try the bone and compare it to the horn - would love to hear your thoughts on that if you do.
Wait...there are picks other then fender mediums?
