Yes, they can break if you really flex them and play super aggressive. Or even after a few weeks of "normal" playing. But that's a side-effect I can live with for an otherwise fantastic pick. They're not the standard nylon like you're used to. It's a slightly thicker, rubbery/plasticy pick. But the best feature is the grip area, it's a raised design on both sides of the pick made of some heavy duty rubber. These feel great in my hand. Not rough like other grip picks, but solid on both sides of the pick for my thumb and finger to wedge nicely into. The mediums are the best, imho, and they sound great with an acoustic: slightly softer attack because of the rubbery-ish material, but not so rubbery that it's dull or grabby. Just right. If the pick breaks, just grab a new one. Problem solved :)

Hey there guys (and gals)...just wanted to tell you that I was rather disappointed with the arrival of these picks. I had previously read all the reviews (some were quite good) and so I took my chances, allured mostly by the cool design. I ordered the 'heavy' guage which are labeled on the box as 1.17mm. They seem to be constructed with a very lightweight and possibly brittle translucent plastic, and the white grippy substance in the central region does not feel like rubber, but rather feels like a different type of plastic. As an alternative, Dunlop 'max grips' (nylon) seem considerably better in quality and grip-a-bility. My 2 cents worth only, but these Planet Waves Surepicks are not quite my cup of tea.

All broke

By XzgBtir9g

from Undisclosed

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I agree with some other reviewers in that the picks cracked and broke too quickly, some right away. The sound was good over all, so I am already trying the cheaper Planet waves ones without the grip, I think they're a better choice.

sound ok, but...

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

While it's true that these picks are easier to hold onto, they have a fatal flaw: the soft grip goes all the way through them. These things break like twigs, I ran through a pack in a week. They'd be great if the grip didn't go through them, though.

Sure Grip & Sure Attack

By Ampbox

from MD, USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I use the medium's (.91mm) and I play heavy metal and this gauge hasn't broken on me yet. Of course, I use a bit of finesse, but I also dig in when needed. One think I like about these besides the blue color and cool graphic, is it's attack; because I like to 'choke up' on my pick for a tighter attack, but with the Suregrip pick, I don't have to; I get a combination of sure-fire attack and freedom. The 'surf's up' graphic keeps the pick from moving around and keeps the focus on good tone and hopefully better playing.I love Planet Waves products and here they impress me again. :D

Great

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought a heavy gauge pack of these a year ago, and I absolutely love them. There's always a few in my pocket, ready to be played. From what I've read, the breaking issue is only with the light and medium gauge models, and does not apply at ALL to the heavier model. These things are tough.Also: I only noticed this a few months ago, but if you hold these up to the light and look at the logo, you'll see something VERY cool. :P

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought the thickest they offer and it is just too flimsy for my playing style. They may work great for you, but way to flimsy for me.

I played 1.0 mm Jim Dunlop black nylon picks for 25 years. Now, I'm hooked on medium Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks. They break too easily, but they are an improvement.

Big Gulps, huh.

By El Kirkmo

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought a pack of the medium surepicks, excited at the prospect of not dropping my picks all the time. I'm a big guy so I get all sweaty when I play and that's why these appealed to me. The only problem is that I still drop these, in fact more than normal picks. The worst part of these picks is that they are weakened by the rubber insets, they crack to peices and break way too quickly. They just aren't worth the cost, especially since they are a weaker pick. I guess if you are a softer player than I am (I get pretty intense) they'd last longer, but they did not satisfy me in the least.

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought some of these for the all too familiar never ending super master one and only favorite pick search. As many have already said Great pick just breaks too easily. Had five when I started a gig one night had none after 1st set. If you like these buy lots and lots of them cause you will burn through them... if you like thumpin your strings.

these really are amazing.

By tremulant

from massachusetts

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I got these in a pack with a strap, a pegwinder/cutter, and a headstand. these really are amazing picks. the non slip grip actually does work. which is pretty unheard of. I have found that if you take out the planet waves logo on the inside of the circle but not the circle itself, the grip works even better. they are a little pricey, but trust me, they are worth it.

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I don't own this pick and am not an experienced bassist but this product sounds great. I have also heard about the wedgie all rubber picks and have heard that it sticks to the strings. This pick shouldn't.

Good looks, bad quality

By Sunny-aioJS

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I got these picks in a 5-pack, buying them mainly because they looked cool. At first I thought they were okay, and they did stay in place as promised, but after a few weeks playing very non-aggressive stuff, two of them broke and another was on the way to breaking. They crack very easily, which totally degrades the quality.

great picks

By esp08

from macungie, PA

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought a pack of strings that came with 5 of these picks, they work great. The grip really does work. Even through entire practices or shows with my band I never drop them. They still move around just a little bit but nowhere near as much as other picks would slide around in my hands. Definatly recomended.

Great picks that break easily

By Rocker Down Under

from Australia

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

I bought some of these picks from my local guitar store in Australia. They look great and the grip concept is a terrific one. They just break too easily though. In our rehearsal room, we have a shrine on the bar with around 20 broken PW picks. Its too bad because I found them nice to play with.

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

Iv'e been playing with these picks for about 3 years and all I can praise them on is thier amazing grip. However the value of the pick sin't that great, they will you about a week or two with the heavy gauge. It's great for metal! So if you don't mind swapping picks every so often, go for it!

Good idea Bad pick

By Stratplayer31

Comments about Planet Waves Surepick Grip Guitar Picks 5 Pack:

The idea behind these picks is a good one, but the picks themselves are probably the worst ones i have ever used. Every time i use one they break within minutes. The grip in the center decreases the strength of the pick and that is where they often break. Bought a dozen of these because i thought that they would work; but, they just kept breaking and the full dozen only survived through about an hour of playing.
