I used Ibanez heavy with the sand on them for a long while.

For the last several years Pick Boy metacabonite. The orange ones are best but I don’t think they have any more of that material. I only have 20 or so of them left. The other colors are good too but the orange ones are where it’s at.

I know what you mean. Finding exactly "your" pick isn`t an easy task. Everyone has their own requirements for a pick, its shape and size, thickness and material. Guitarists often use different picks when playing different guitars. So you can only make an informed choice after playing a lot of different picks. I've tried a bunch of them, now I buy at https://ironageaccessories.com/ and they fit me perfectly. Now I choose the thin ones, because you hear the cleanest and clearest sound with them. The first one I had was a Tortex, and I still have it as a memento, even though it's pretty worn out.

Wow, one can buy a cheap guitar for half a dozen of their pics :yikes but yeah, given the workmanship and all... they do look nice.

I started out with the purple 1.14mm Tortex, anything thinner than that felt too flimsy… I’ve tried many others since and lately I was using 1.5mm Dunlop Delrins like Yngwie but I now use the 2.0mm ones. Yngwie recently came out with his signature Dunlop Delrin picks with 1.14mm, 1.5mm and 2.0mm gauges and I bought the 2.0mm ones in red so I’ll be using those for a while. :headbang :toast
