I don't like pics/plecs, whatever you want to call them. You hear so many guitarists say, "tone's in your FINGERS!" - why introduce a foreign body into the equation? I did try some stone picks once, a guy from Australia sent me a couple to try out, and I did a review of them - they were nice, and eliminated a lot of pick noise, and - although they were highly polished - were surprisingly easy to keep hold of.
But my main argument against them is simple....picks are great for strumming, but what happens when you have to change from strumming to fingerpicking half-way through a song? It's difficult enough to pick with a thumb and three fingers (does ANYONE actually use their pinky to fingerpick? I've never seen it....) but when you've only got a pick held between your thumb and forefinger and only two fingers left to pick with, I find it very difficult.
Ditch the plec, grow your nails...you'll be surprised how much extra control you have.
PS - It once cost me Â£72 to call a washing machine repairman out, a plec got stuck in the lint-trap and blocked the outflow. That particular plec went straight in the bin.......after being severely tortured!
