      I bought this specifically because I'm playing the song "Falling Slowly" from the musical/movie "Once" and it switches back and forth between fingerstyle and plectrum rather quickly. Trying to "tuck" a standard pick into my palm (I can't do the standard trick of putting the pick in my mouth because I'm also singing) was not consistently successful, so I figured this pick might allow me to "retain" the pick in my hand with less effort or likelihood of dropping it.

      For that, it works wonderfully! It really does put the pick right in my fingertips quickly, aligned with the strings. For design, the manufacturer gets an "A" - on that count, it's just what the doctor ordered.

      The problem with it is that the materials used for the pick itself are not right; for one, the pick is very "soft" - while firm, the pick breaks down very easily, and playing hard strumming patterns on an acoustic very quickly wears the pick down. Perhaps more annoyingly, the softness of the pick greatly diminishes the attack and volume of the instrument - playing with a standard pick, followed by this one, the difference is quite profound.

      So my "Yes, I would recommend it to a friend" comes with a caveat; while it will perform the specific job I bought it for, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for regular use - its poor materials choice means it will wear out quickly and detract from your sound.

      may be of some use to those who have zero ability to hold a pick... but it could be soooooo soooooo much better. I bought it thinking I could easily switch from fingering my bass to picking and back. the "pick" wears out in less than an hour of playing. looks like my idea for this pick FAILed. I'm not upset I'm only out a few bucks... just sad that it wasn't what I thought it could be.
      Features... what somewhat looks like a pick molded to some cheap flimsy rubber.
      cheap. cheap, flimsy rubber. not what it looks like in the BIG picture. is much smaller than it seems.
      This for one single, crappy pick. it's not green either. its red.

        I have been playing guitar since the age of Ten, I have had a hard time in the last few years holding on to a pick. These picks have eliminated this issue completely. I'm 55 now, maybe just getting older. I LOVE these picks.

            These work great if modified

            Comments about ZeroGravity Orbit Guitar Pick:

            This is a great invention and a great pick holder but a lousy pick. The black loop is brilliant and works great for holding the pick. If you wear it on your middle finger you can flip it up above your thumb and finger pick, then flip it down and use the pick. The pick will never spin, nor will it ever fly out of your fingers. It is simple but it is genius. The problem is that the the stupid green/blue/red plastic they use for the pick is complete garbage. It is soft and flimsy. It gives a very bad tone to the guitar and it also wears out very quickly. The plastic literally shreds on the strings. My solution? Lop off the colored plastic pick just below where the black loop plastic stops, take the thing out to my shop and buzz the one side of it on my grinder wheel until it is smooth and flat, then superglue whatever pick I want onto it. I am fond of the Plec Pro pick. I just glue one on to the Orbit and have the ultimate pick. By the way, the only glue I've found that works is Gorilla Superglue. Not Gorilla Glue and not Superglue. Gorilla Superglue. You have to hold it a long time because it does not dry/set quickly, but it holds.

                          I've played guitar for about 56 years. In the 80's I suffered and injury to my right arm severing the Ulnar Nerve below the elbow, resulting in the loss of lateral motion in the fingers & thumb of my right hand. I can make a fist, but cant turn a door knob, very hard to hold the guitar pick at the right angle. If it starts to turn I can't right it using another finger like most folks, that is if it hasn't already flown across the room at that point! These Orbit picks are great and exactly what I've needed. I just slip the pick's ring over my index finger and the pick stays in the right position all the time. I can't even drop it ! How cool is that? Has improved my rhythm and lead pickin' a lot and has put some of the "JOY" back in my music.
