Pickboy produces nylon and ceramic plectra with various grippy textures. Dunlop's Gator Grip picks work well when new, but tend to "polish up" as they gain a coating of bio oils and dirt. Then they need degreasing.

That's true even of nose picks.

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

I have a couple of those, and like them.
I have noticed they smooth out a bit over time, but they haven't shown any increased tendency to jump out of my hand.

From the Everyman English Dictionary....

plectrum, n. (pl. plectra) quill, small rod, for plucking strings of lyre, etc. (L.)

Only found that out recently myself.

:D :D :D

My grand dad rode "Shotgun" With the local Moonshiners Back in the late 30's. He was living in Kansas then. Also Had some relatives from central Kentucky who made the stuff. Half of my ancestors made the stuff and the other half were in law enforcement Must have made some interesting if not awkward family get togethers back then

Oh yea, I'm one of then Damn Yankees also (since 1983)

Not unheard of for the same guys to play both sides. A police chief in a small town near here just got busted for selling undercover agents meth. Of course, he's been recently in the papers talking tough about the war on drugs.

I'm sure none of your ancestors did anything like that, though!

(A little bit tongue in cheek. I figure any of us in America likely had ancestors that got run out of Europe for one reason or another.)
