Anyone else tried Cactus picks?

I ordered some on a whim from the ebaystore of the guy who makes them. I think thats the only place you can get them.
But anyway.. i really liked them! It's almost impossible for them to slip your grip.



They are really cheap too.. here's the ebaystore: http://cgi.ebay.com/100-Cactus-Grip-Guitar...818159007r16294

The mediums are my fav so far of them.

Sounds good from your short review smile.gif How much do they cost (for 100)?

I think you can buy smaller quantities too. I just went for the 100 pack. The pricetag was about the same as 10 picks would cost here in Norway smile.gif

Emir, it's US $9.98 for 100

I seriously hate the 1-pick-situation! I know it's only a matter of minutes before i loose that one too biggrin.gif
After my latest ebay-binge, i now have around...... 250 picks in a box ready for use.
100 cactus, 10 v-picks and other assorted brands of various shapes and sizes.

By my calculations i'll have one left in 4 weeks.

I used a Cactus as a Pick once.


It made a hell of a mess of the strings.

I've never done it again!!!
