      I have used Dunlop Tortex .73 exclusively for over 20 years until recently when a guitarist friend let me try out an orange Snarling Dogs BRAIN pick. I liked it so much I ordered tins of the red and black ones to try, along with three other brands of picks I thought looked interesting. After doing some thorough comparison testing of all five picks, I couldn't deny how much more clean and accurate my picking was when using the black BRAIN picks. I am now totally sold on them!

      Some people don't like the bumpy grip on these picks, but I do. The raised part is far enough away from the edge of the pick that it doesn't interfere with playing or catch the strings in the way some gripped picks do. The bumps are also not as "sharp" feeling as other gripped picks. The BRAIN picks are comfortable, have good attack, just the right amount of flex and strength, and seem to last well. They are made from Nylon, so they should hold up for quite some time.

      My style of playing is typically 90% metal, lots of string skipping, shreddy leads, driving rhythms, sweeps, and squeals (these picks are friggin' awesome for pinch harmonics!). They are also great for acoustic playing.

      I have a lot of Dunlops in my gig bag, but I'll be using them as backups from now on. Definitely switching to BRAINs. More brains!!!

      I bought a box of these picks (red .73) about a year and a half ago and they were probably the best picks I'd ever used for tone and ease of manipulation. However, I recently bought another box because unfortunately I gave most of my others away for people to try (wish I'd kept them). This newer box of picks (red .73) are of much lower quality and very much different than those I had just a year ago. They are flimsier, flop more, and have a scratchy yet tinny weak tone. Unfortunately, these newer picks are useless to me. I contacted there support several times over the last couple of weeks to ask where I can find the older stock but have gotten no response. Either they lost their old formula and molds or made some executive decision to cheapen the product in lieu of keeping the pretty tin box. I suppose they're banking on the fact that no one will notice to drop in quality hoping the fancy box will sell the product. I will send the remaining 11 picks in my last order back to musician's friend and tell them to send them back where the got them.

            Best picks I've encountered, BUT I hate the name. Snarling has virtually nothing to do with dogs or guitar playing.

              Love the tin the picks come in. Still getting used to using a textured pick, but even if that doesn't end up working out, the tin can be used to store other picks.

                I find that smooth pics easily slip out of my fingers when I play. These pics give me a much more secure grip. I really liked that they came with a metal tin. I usually use a skoal tin...not into advertising for tobacco...so I was glad to get this tin. It does not stay securely shut. It's ok, but I would prefer if it would securely click closed when you shut it. I keep it in my guitar case, so it works alright for my purposes.

                    I have never come on here and actually trashed something BUT! I bought these picks to try along with some more Dunlop's which I normally use. I have to say most of these picks had an extra 1/32 of an inch or more of unformed plastic all the way around them. I'm not going to sit here and do the finishing trim for Snarling Dogs or I'll become one. They charge a lot of money for unformed picks. Bad form Snarling Dogs. These are useless and the worst excuse for a finished product I have seen in a long time.!

                      As one reviewer stated, these are not the same picks as previously manufactured. I still have several 1.14mm/orange picks from a few dozen that I purchased a couple years ago and compared those to the 1.14mm picks I recently purchased in November 2015. The difference is quite noticeable...the new picks are more pliable and you can feel them 'give' while you're picking strings. They still don't move around in between your fingers while you're playing, which I like and is why I tried them in the first place, they just aren't as rigid. Consequently, as least for me, it makes playing with them a little sloppy. Well, I still have a few of the old formula picks...after they're done I'll be in search for a new non-slip pick. Too bad...I really liked them.
