I’ve tried a few of them. They are very well made. Most, for me, were too thick. However, I do use their “ Medium Lite” for loud heavy digging in, dirty blues type stuff.

Great tone, great slip resistance. For some reason never got round to buying more although I love them as much as Blue Chip.

Vinny makes a great product. He has a bunch of endorsers you have heard of. He is a really nice guy with a wonderful personality, he's great on the phone and is just plain friendly. His product is consistently made and useful. I have a couple on my desk where I rehearse.

I have several V-picks; the Screamer model is my favorite. That said, I prefer my Charmed Life brown pick over the V's. The V-picks make a lot of clicking pick noise when strumming chords.

I've got to second that! I've tried to like mine because it feels great in my hand, but there is way too much click noise.

I love them on electric guitar. Can't say that I feel the same on the acoustic side. I'll stick with Charmed Life and Blue Chip on my acoustics.

They were my introduction to the fact that a pick can make a huge difference in the sound of the guitar. I got a variety pack years ago and there really was a nice collection of edges, thicknesses and sounds.

Although I rarely use them now, I think they are an excellent value for the money.

I own many V-Picks and they don't perform that way for me, and I'm a flat-pick strummer. They make no more noise than any pick but they stay glued to your fingers and are rock steady in your hand.

I use a Traditional Ultra Lite for my acoustics and prefer them over my Blue Chips. I use other thicker picks for my electrics and they deliver great solid tone.

Very affordable and they offer a great selection from $3.50 to $5.00 on average.

Big fan of them on acoustics. Favorite is the Red Rocker.

I really like them. Red Rocker is my go to and I use a couple on my mandolin that I don't remember the name of. I tend to tear up picks but the V-Picks really take a beating.

They do a terrific job. They, and Gravity, deal largely in Acrylic. You should give them both a try, for sure.

Because of the grip factor in the material, these are heavily favored by electric players who perform under hot lights.

Beautiful material, and from what I've heard just a great group of people. And always a positive thing to support boutique vendors.

hope this helps,
scott
