    I didn't know of the demise of Presto. Too bad, they were nicely made, especially this one. Beats the Calton, imo.

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    Yeah, the pick thing is a movable target. I've gone to thinner/more of a point lately. I had been on Kenny Smith 55 fairly exclusively, now on a TAD50 or a Gravity Striker or Classic 1.5. I go back...
