        Have tried most all other materials in a heavy pick, (stone, wood, V pik, surpick etc) and I return always to the Pro Plec. eveyone is different and like different picks I find the Dunlop delrin 1.5 also very good(after a little light sanding to remove the molding flash from the tip) but the slightly rounder tip of the PP has a free and faster release from the string.
        I am a session player/sideman and have played guitar for over 30 yr's (man,, that long? I'm old!)
        Many, many yr's ago I was asking a monster local jazz player about picking technique and asked about plectrum brands/types.

        He said "Son, you can make a heavy pick lighter but never make a light pick heavy, you must learn proper technique so that your hands and fingers are in control not the pick" He explained how he struck the string very lightly with a heavy pick and was the key to faster runs and more expressive slower playing. Since then I have used heavier plectrums, mostly fender ex heavy and dunlop delrin 1.5mm. Between sessions in Nashville 15 yr's or so ago, i wandered into a bluegrass instrument shop and discovered the Pro Plec. It's been my main pick ever since. Yes it's a thick pick with little to no flex, the reviewer who thought "It is super thick and unresponsive. It really dulls the sound of your instrument" simply is not a player who doesn't prefer a heavy pick. different strokes.... But if you do use heavy picks the PP is an incredible pick to express your technical ability and produce broad fat tone. Imho the best celluloid 351(fender) style made.
        Never have had a bad one, buffed and polished to perfection. long lasting and inprinted deep enough it acts as a mild grip surface.
        Heavy pick user? speed player? jazz. rock bluegrass player? well worth the money.

          You can play a whole 4 hour gig at the casino with just one of these picks because they are so thick. I switched a few years ago when I read somewhere that these picks made them a better player and I've found that they were telling the truth. I'm going to ask Dweezil what kind of picks he uses when I see him on 2/1/2014 in Arcata. CA.

            I have used Fender Celluloid Medium Picks for countless years & experimented with a PLEC a friend gave me... I noticed a completely new tone coming from my electric guitars that I love! I'm still not certain if I like the overall tone these create on my acoustic guitars & still find myself using the Fender Mediums on these for the most part. Good quality picks!

                Acoustic guitars require a heavy pick to bring out their volume and tone. I always used 2.00 mm picks which sound great, but are somewhat difficult to manipulate. Most 1.5 mm picks sounded too thin and bright for my liking, but this pick sounds very close to a 2.00 mm in volume and tone. This pick has greatly improved my flatpicking.

                        Excellent picks, well made and very easy to use once you get used to them.

                        If you have trouble with dull sound, research the concept of the speed bevel. Invest in a nail file set and bevel the edges. I bevel all edges, as I use the rounded portion of the pick as much as the point. You will be amazed at how this brightens the sound of a 1.5mm pick

                            After using a medium pick for 30+ years, I decided to try a heavy pick, as recommended by Robben Ford. A heavy pick greatly enhanced my playing and after trying 15 or more different picks (and finally deciding on an extra heavy), the D'Andrea is my top choice - great feel and tone. I am a professional level player and, for fast runs, rakes, chicken pickin', etc., the quick response of this pick is perfect. Great for rock, blues, jazz, country - whatever. If you are more of an aggressive or heavy handed player, with a lot of attack on the strings, I would not recommend this pick (or any heavy pick). But, if you are competent in controlling a heavy pick with single notes and chords, I would highly recommend the D'Andrea Pro Plec.

                                I have settled into using these ProPlec picks for acoustic and electric guitar work. I have tried everything out there - materials which are no longer commercially available as well as the latest technologies in picks.

                                My search ended with ProPlec's a couple of years ago. They create just the right chirp on the attack and there is a warmth that they tease out of the strings - kind of like your finger nail sounds.

                                I also really like the thickness of the 1.5s - there is enough give in the pick to strum but also enough rigidness to get out single notes fast.

                                These guys did it right at a reasonable price!

                                    Out of the package, the grip was too smooth for me, but these rough up nice after carving a cross hatch with a dull knife. Awesome tone, warm and punchy. I use as an alternative to metal picks. Definitely a hard pick, but once you get used to that style you have more touch and dynamics. These are very durable. I have used for a couple years and still have untouched picks in the package.
