    Thanks very much, Vinni and Scott! (As you might expect) I can use some picks. I've bought V-Picks several times, and I really liked 'em. Wish I knew where they were. Clear's not a great choice in pick color for me.

    . . . But nevermind. Fresh supply on the way!

    As the winner from furthest away, I think, (Scotland) many thanks to V-Picks and to Scott for restoring my faith in my ability to win something in a prize draw. Will post update when I have had a chance to try out the picks.

    Thanks to Scott and Vinni for making this happen. Looking forward to test driving all three picks. I love the one V-Pick I have, although for me it works a bit better on the guitar than on the mandolin.

    Unfortunately the event is over. Fortunately, these are inexpensive and you can order directly from their site! Not to mention I usually find an extra to try for free when I order!

    OK....time for a report.

    I got 3 V picks in the mail today, and after playing hooky with work for too long...I have had an opportunity to enjoy all 3 and compare to my usual pick like substance. Will give an account and a 1-10 rating, 1 being "fling into crowd worthy" bad and 10 being "I just cant bring myself to play this, as I am not worthy!!!!!" good.

    1-thick white triangle. Feels funny being as thick as it is, very easy to hang onto, great warm sound, louder then most of the other "mando" must have picks. It would be great for when I play at church, and its just me. 8.5 points. My ONLY "objection" if I can use that strong a word, is it still feels funny in my hand. I am sure I will get used to it though.

    2- Large triangle clear- VERY nice definition! I seem to be able to really control the action, pick out what I want, (like the weirdness I do sometimes by just wanting 1 string instead of 2. An old 12-string guitar habit for definition of sound.) I really enjoy the feel, and the engraving helps the grip. I LOVE the fact that it has 3 sides, so it should be able to last longer. Strumming it has plenty of bark, and again, it just feels more in control. 9.5. It achieved the coveted spot of being put between my strings when I put the Bulldog mandolin back in the case. I can not give it a full 10 yet, as I dont know how it will shave down as I play. (yes, I am one of those "weird" players that play at different angles to get different sounds) so only time will tell. Promise a revisit.

    3- med clear somewhat rounded. This one is a bit more "muted" in sound, most likely as a result of its shape. While I enjoyed the feel of it, (closer to my fender med in shape and feel) it was less defined in sound, more thuddy and almost muddy. I would give it a 7. While it is not my FIRST choice, it does have some pretty warm and gentle sounds that I could see a use for when I dont want to reach out and pull on the nose of my listeners.

    Over all, I am sold. I have played MUCH more expensive picks, only to toss them back in the pick case. I have played Fender mediums for decades, and I replaced all 3 hiding places with these 3 new picks. If I had to only pick 1 of them, I would and will buy the 3 sided larger clear triangle picks.

    Thank you SO much for the opportunity to play these. I would HIGHLY recommend them, and will. No flinging them into the crowd for these pics!

    To be honest, I think the thread should be closed at this point to avoid more people thinking the draw is still up.

    Thanks for the review Ray!

    As I didn't win free pics, I'd love to see some more reviews!

    I'll probably order some as they aren't that much...and wonder what the most popular models are among cafe users.

    If any of you winners don't like them then I will be first to accept the "unwanted" and try them out. If I don't like them I'll pass 'em along to another.
