I used .73's for a long time, but somehow ended up with one of these and dug it, so this is where I'm at now. Back in the late 80's, my best friend gave every guitar player he knew 2 packs of these (about 10 players). We've ALL moved about 6 times each since then. We've been through numerous relationships. We've sold gear, bought gear...and these damned picks STILL show up from time to time. I actually found one on the floor of an apartment I was moving into, on the first trip in with stuff. Blew my mind!
