    http://ice-pix.com/metal-brass-12-pack-xheavy-non-flex-63mm/ I had one of these back in my teens I used a few times. Didn't really care too much for em. Always wanted to sharpen it and start throwing it like a ninja star though.

    I have a couple of Monoprice medium picks, a .96mm Dunlop Gator Grip, one of those 1 mm black nylon Dunlop picks, and a couple of Dunlop tortex (.88 green and 1.14 purple.) PM me if interested. I also was at my local shop today and picked up an assortment of these beauties.

    (Thickness increases left to right.) I like the way they feel, and they're gorgeous, but I've been using the purple one a bit and I fear these are going to wear much faster than the Tortex ones.

    Which Dava is that? If it is other than red or yellow, I will try it.

    13 Picks coming your way as soon as I get your address. Please pass on any you don't like so we can keep this going. I'm sending the White Dava to RVA, I'll send you a different color.

    Good thought! Or, if you think it is really good, recommend it, buy yourself a pack and pass along the sample. We can then see which picks get the highest endorsement among the ESG folk!

    Got my Dava pick today. It is a great light pick - flexible without being floppy. This is an area I was lacking in, and since I already liked Dava, I will certainly get more. Thanks Sp8ctre!

    Thanks for the review. I really like Dava picks!

    I received my Nylon/Copper pick as well. It's a little stiffer than I normally use, but I like the little indented circle. It really helps to hold onto the pick. Also a little larger than I'm used to.

    I also picked up some Jim Duncan "Big Stubby" picks this weekend and I really like those. They are slightly flexible, but still hard for a 1mm pick. They also have a concave to help with grip.

    Got some Ernie Ball "Everlast" as well, just run of the mill IMO.
