I’ve been playing with mine for about a week now. i *really* dig it. great job, Vinni!!! I’ve been using Dunlop M3’s (the green tortex pointy ones shaped similar to the Dunlop series) for the last 8 years or so. those are the only picks I’ve ever really liked until I tried yours. I do find, as a previous poster (madsman) stated, that when I want to play more hard rock / shred-type stuff, the Dunlops work better for me. however, I find that my sweep-picking technique is more clearly executed with the V-pick. I usually don’t play shred-type music, anyway…I’m more of a classic rock / jazz / fusion / blues kind of guy. so far, I think the v-pick is it for me!!! Artificial harmonics are way easier, too. I didn’t think it would be possible to outdo the Dunlop M3, but you did it…KUDOS to you, Vinni!!! I’ll be ordering more in the future….
