There are lots of them.

Jim Dunlop makes a few - the Tortex line doesn't feel as slippery as a celluloid type pick, and their Jazz and Stubby lines have a lot of texture with raised letters that makes for a good grip.

I've also seen picks marketed with holes in them, and some that curl around your thumb. I don't remember the brand names, and I didn't like the feel of them, so I gave 'em all away.

I like these, they have a textured, rubber like center.

You can also try a product called "Gorilla Snot" -- it makes it easier to grip the pick.

I just love the name "Snarling Dog Brain Picks With Cat Tongue Grip."

They work as advertised. They're molded with a raspy gripping surface that feels something like a cat's "sandpaper tongue."

How about the Dunlop Gator Grip? These have a mild textured surface.

+1 on Gator Grips. I tried a good number before settling on these.

Sandpaper on the fingering end of the pick helps . Some people use a paper hole punch or a drill to make holes . In extreme cases , Crazy Glue . Just one little drop ... just kidding !

If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .
