          Best pick I've ever used... by a mile

          I used Dunlop Tortex .50mm for close to 20 yrs, but decided to try the Ultex .60mm (lightest Ultex guage) about 5 yrs ago, after reading an interview w/ Jim Dunlop. I have used nothing else since.

          For me, the best attributes of Ultex is the attack & clarity they add. They also make you feel like you turned your volume up... the notes just jump off the pick, very lively. They are more rigid than pick of the same guage made from other materials, so you might want to try a guage lower than what you're used to. They also last a lot longer than celluloid, nylon or tortex picks, although they're not "Indestructible" as Dunlop claims.

          Try them out... you'll never go back!

          These picks feel nice and yield a good sound, but are not durable enough: I grabbed a few of these before a gig, and they all broke. I played 3-5 songs with each one. Because I play aggressively, they didn't hold up.

          I'd consider using these for guitar, but never again for bass.

                Pick gives you a louder sound when hitting strings notes seem to jump out of amp especially with lots of gain like metal gives it a grinding sound last a little longer than ordinary picks

                        Comments about Dunlop 421P Ultex Guitar Picks:

                        The .60mm picks really hit that sweet stop between the "Medium" and "Heavy" gauges of most picks out there -- I've typically played with Fender & Ernie Ball picks, so I'm referring to those brands for this comparison. The .60mm Ultex picks are flexible enough where you won't lose any smoothness in your strum, but firm enough to provide a little more confidence when it comes to soloing or single-string picking.

                        Have not had any durability issues thus far, nor have I noticed any "slimming" of the pick near the point. Good product.

                          Been experimenting with different picks-it can make a huge difference. These have a fast, smooth release off the strings-you can feel the difference-can play a bit better, faster, smoother.

                                  I ordered a pack of this and a pack of Tortex .73mm picks. A dozen of the .73 came, but only one of the .60mm. Seems there was a tear in the bag and maybe when packing the box, most of them fell out.

                                  Called MF up, they were helpful buuut only to send me another packet of Tortex .73. At this point, I just became frustrated. I don't know how much clearer I could have been. This is a great product - I wish I had more than one instead of 2 dozen picks that I don't need. I recommend this product because it works so well with my style of playing and guitar but TRIPLE CHECK YOUR ORDER.

                                        These are the best picks ever. Feel and tone are just right for acoustic and electric. You will notice the difference when you go back to regular pick material.

                                            I have used a few different variations of the Ultex picks over the past few years and while they deliver crisp tone, they flake, chip and flat out break far too quickly under the strain of live performances. For the money I'll stick with Tortex picks. Twice the pick, half the money.

                                            I like using these picks. They are snappy and hard, and that type of action translates into my guitar picking.
                                            These picks have great bite and sharpness compared to other brands of picks of similar thickness.
                                            These picks are strong and difficult to break. They will break if you try hard enough. These picks will last a long while, but not forever. But, what lasts forever anyways?
                                            These picks are appropriately priced. They are not expensive.
