Whenever I play traditional lead, any brand of flat-pick tends to squirrel around between my thumb and first finger, especially on triplets and fast runs. No more! These Clayton thumb-picks hang-on. They are not too heavy or too light and have improved my lead-work tremendously. I will definitely buy more.

Coming from someone who went from national thumb picks to Dunlops to these and now forever back to dunlops believe me when I say these are paper thin! They fit like a glove but the sound you get is so wimpy. I found out about them from one of my favorite artists, Ulli Boegershausen, and I have no idea how he plays with them, but they are not for me. Also playing with these will prevent you from doing some advanced techniques like a thumb pick "up stroke" frequently used by Antoine Dufour. Mainly these are not for me, but if you are looking for a thin thumb pick, these are for you.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

      Most thumb picks are thick and don't work well for strumming, I'd like to see these thinner yet.
      I have used them for practice and so far they are great!

                Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

                While these are advertised as "medium," They are tight on my thumb, and I don't have a large thumb so I am very disappointed. Not worth returning but I'll avoid these next time.

                  Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

                  I like the shape and look of these picks but find that they don't stand up to heavy usage. I play hard and soft Bluegrass; these picks turn on my thumb after a couple of riffs. Yes they are the correct size, they are just too thin and flimsy for hard licks. Inexpensive, but not worth it. Pay more; get more....

                      Out of the package these picks are durable and well made. The L size fit my thumb tightly. I am adult male with large hands. The thumb picks are
                      long, thick (0.037") and wide (about 1/2" wide and 1/2" long. I trim the sides with a hobby knife and sand the bottom with 200 grit, then 400, until I get 0.022"-0.025" at the tip. This makes the pick more flexible and fits my playing style much better.

                        I've been having a problem dropping picks while playing. The only thing I've had to adjust with these is the angle that I hold my hand if I want to use it like a regular pick. but great when using it to just play with your thumb

                        I am use to the National Picks and these are just to thin for my liking, also they are a bit long, and I believe I should've gotten the ex large size they just don't feel secure on my thumb. They are made Well and my advise is try them, It might be what you are looking for, But I'm going to stick with the National's or the Dunlap's.
