Are the max grip Jazz III's better than the Ultex ones? I've had no bother dropping the ultex ones or anything..

The Ultex ones do stay in the fingers better but they have a different attack, I prefer the nylons for playing but the Ultex for how well they stay in my fingers

I'll see if I can pick up some of these max grip Jazz III's - or at least one for a side by side comparison

While raping a bear in Yellowstone and snorting coke out of a freshly-dead baby's skull, I finally felt that I had found my calling and built a time machine out of Iraqi WMDs and LOTS OF HEMP WHOA.

So this video in the first post... I don't really get it. The guy spends a week practicing a run, and he's got maybe a little bit faster and cleaner at it. I would expect that without using a different pick. Plus the Insanity pick has a fairly dull sound to it, it's almost like he's playing with a coin. I'm sure there's something to be said for which pick you use but 20 for one of these seems a bit pointless.

That's a good point actually. Of course you're going to be better at a lick if you practice it all week, I'd be more impressed if he was cleaner/faster at playing in general.

If this pick really does let you play faster or whatever then it should have shown him playing a lick with a regular pick, then swapping to this expensive pick and playing the exact same lick.

It does have a dull sound to it. Just like the guy says in the video, you have to pick harder to get it to sound right. It forces you to play really hard, therefor training your right hand. Of course, you could just keep practicing with a regular pick, but a regular pick doesn't force you to play really hard to tighten things up. It's just a tool to help get from point A to point B or point C or whatever point you're getting there. How you get there doesn't matter but there's more than one option.

All I know is when I switched to v-picks is "flowed" through the strings much easier than any other pick I had tried. I'm thinking about trying one of their 4.5mm models.
