Ernie ball pickey picks finger picks

Does anyone have experience with these finger picks? do you hit the strings better? or is it more difficult to play with these picks?

I used to use those quite a bit, but I found they made it harder to strike the string and made a lot of excess noise. My banjo teacher prefers them though, so maybe it’s just me.

I’ve tried them but never cared for them. Both too thin and thin sounding.

Hi @Severin

I use the ProPick Stainless Steel Angle Picks. I tried many different picks before I finally settled with these. I must confess I never tried the Ernie Ball Picks like Dave said they looked to me to be too flimsy but at that price it certainly worth giving them a trial.

This is the style of pick I use although I have the Stainless Steel version which are more expensive. @BanjoBen @Jake doesn’t have them listed in the General Store but I am sure if you asked they could order them in for you.
