    I like V-Picks a lot. The acrylic ones are really fast and clean and easy to grip. I like the clear, articulate tone -- cleaner and clearer than the Blue Chip, which is a great pick. I like virtually no flex in a pick, but still like 'em thin, and some V-Picks fill that bill. (I, too, use the Tradition Lite pictured in another post.) Gravity Picks are similar. Both have minimal string noise on electric, but on acoustics, I find acrylic really noisy and so use either Blue Chip or Charmed Life (red) on those. All have major tonal consequences, so that's up to you! For all-rounder performance in a regular brand, it's hard to beat Ultex or similar. They're awfully good.

    +1 for the Ultex.

    I really love my Gravity picks, but you can't beat Ultex for a regular production pick. In my opinion, it's one of the best for versatility, price, sound, and feel. I like the Ultex Sharps in .73mm.

    Switchblade user here. Absolutely perfect. The same model that Brad Whitform of Aerosmith uses.

    Ultex used to be my favorite then I found Pickboy "Edge" and "Reefer" picks and they became my favorites then I found Master 8 Infinix they are my favorites currently but they can be hard to get in the US-- I got them when I was in Japan.
