I have more picks than I will ever use. When I see a new kind that I haven't tried, I get one or two, play with them a few times, then go back to my Alien EBE picks. Why? The glow-in-the-dark material is smooth and has just the right amount of flex for me. I use Elixir strings pretty much exclusively, and this pick sounds right on either light gauge or mediums. I lose fewer, too, since they glow and I can find them with the lights out.
