I don't understand how people who spend so much on guitars and other associated gear can wear them down so much. I don't break strings and I don't wear down picks. My technique is all in the wrist. I lose more to the lint trap that I do to wear and tear. I've had some picks for decades; they keep turning up like a bad penny. They're usually plastic ones from big box stores or name brands.

Back to the topic at hand, gray/black nylon Dunlops are pretty much all I need. I like the black 1mm ones or the .88mm ones. I don't like a glassy attack sound and prefer a little flex. I admit that I have a couple of "bad penny" plastic picks. One is day glo green that I like to use when I'm playing outside; I tend to lose things easily.
