As you already have a BC pick, I’m sure you already know that Vespel is a completely different material to celluloid, so I can’t recommend a BC pick that’s ‘comparable to a Fender Medium’. They aren’t ‘the same’.

What I can say is that I found changing from a Fender Medium or a JD nylon .88mm to a BlueChip TD35 and TAD35 very easy. No more than a few minutes to get accustomed to the different ‘feel’ of Vespel.

The usual disclaimers apply......IMHO, YMMV etc.
