    Looking at the rest, I've found that National is the best.
    I've played for 45 years and for most of that time I've used a flat pick or simply fingerpicking with no pick at all. Using the thumb pick has given me the ability to tailor my playing to emphasize tone and volume. I've used the pick for a year now, and it has become standard equipment. I use it on my six string, 12 string and my electric. Mastering a thumb pick gives a whole new dimension to your music. With technique you can strum with these picks. I like the suggestion made about putting it in boiling water to mold it to your thumb as I've found out of the package, they do snag a string at times.
    The only thing that prevents me from going to a 10 is that the loop end of the pick should curl in more to prevent accidentally catching a string.
    The only reason I'm buying more than one is not due to quality, but simply if I lose it.

      Forget the rest! This is the thumb-pick, don't try a cheaper one or you will feel ripped off.
      Pricey, but they do last a long time, so worth it!

        Great picks, although the ones I got look nothing like the picture. They are still very good quality and fit great.

            Comments about National Picks Plastic Thumb Pick 1 Dozen:

            National are my standard thumb picks for guitar. I live in a relatively rural area where they are difficult to find, so, when I find them, I buy them in quantity . Buying a dozen at a time at a competitive unit price and getting free shipping to boot, made it a "good fit" for my needs.

                Only comment is to warn others that the Nationals seem to run larger than do Dunlop picks. The large size of these are a little loose compared with the Dunlop larges.

                    Much larger than the medium-sized one i already had at home. Slid way too far on my thumb. Never tried to use it. Very disappointed. Seems much softer than the old one, too.

                      It was well-worth the wait for the re-order & re-stock of this item; I am exceedingly motivated as I practice & learn new 'thumb-pick' benefits / skills of Acoustic Guitar playing. I have divided my 12 thumb-picks: six (6) for my Gibson and six (6) for my First-Act [steel string] Acoustic Guitars.Wonderful product - thanks!
