Has any one used these picks and if so, what is your opinion of them?

They look cool. Im curious about how they'd compare to the bluechip. I love my bluechip.

I tried them on a few times at Wintergrass and in the year since, haven't bought. They seem kind of loose and i have pretty fat thumbs. A local store does sell them, I would need to either tighten the spring or take up slack somehow.

Loose to me is not a drawback when playing 6 string guitar, that's why i use blue hercos but is drawback for pedal steel.

ok, just took a bullet for science and bought one. Now i remember why they felt loose.

When you first put it on it's very snug but the point of the blade is way behind where it is on my normal tpicks, so I have to have it pushed forward where it's very loose.  So i'll have to spend some time reshaping the blade to something i'm used to, or get used to picking a different way, maybe a little of both.
