Please do tell.

Lately, I have been liking these 'cats tongue' picks that I picked up at a local music store.  http://elderly.com/accessories/items/PKB-88.htm

The grip on these things is far and away above anything I've ever used before.  For at least the past 10 years I've been a Dunlop Standard Nylon pick guy, using white through black, depending on whether I'm lightly strumming the Larry, or tearing into it on my Strat.  But I'm becoming a convert to the cat's tongue grip on the item above.  Even with sweaty or slippery fingers, the grit or whatever is in the grip of these is really 'catchy'.

I also tried some of these http://elderly.com/accessories/items/PKSR-M.htm but the rubber grip wears off pretty quick.  One really weird thing about this pick is that when you drop it, it makes a distinct 'plink' sound.  It's kind of weird, almost glass or metallic in tone.

The humidy was in the high 80%,it was rainy and playing guitar was like trying to pull your hands out of taffy.Everything was sticky but the Tusq 1.00 pick felt pretty good.Nevr slipped from grip,if only my left hand could of moved without sticking.I plan on testing these things for a while so I will keep reporting back.
