I'd like to thank the spam-bot whose long-deleted post brought this thread up from the bottom of the list. Saves me digging for it.

I treated myself to another Blue Chip pick, a TD40. I've developed a preference for large, thick picks, and I have a number of them now, but I thought I'd see what a thinner Blue Chip, in a conventional shape, felt and sounded like.

Very nice. Its stiffness holds up, where nylon picks at this thickness will flex a little, and it has that turtley rattle when you drop it on a tabletop. The Blue Chip site shows a new model, the TD35, that's even thinner. I might try that someday soon.

I've gotten to where I don't even try to convince anyone that it is worth spending double figures on picks (some of you will be happy to know,) much less which exotic pick is "best", but Blue Chip is a definite favorite for me. They arrive very soon after you order them, too, unlike some of my other favorite brands.
