  7. Re: Would anyone be interested in a Blue Chip pick shootout?

    I’ve found the same mid range punch control with going to thinner BC picks in same shape and bevel.

    My Weber is 13 yrs old, varnished. I have spilled lots of beer dribbles and a few (Lot of)whiskey dribbles and lots of sweat. Never polished, only damp wiping. It looks stellar. If you want an...
