I am ordering some as well. They have some other good deals in their ebay store so I will give some other things a try. Nice find.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

These picks look great. I love the "rock" shape to them.

Anyone know of any picks that are this shape but are greater than 1.3 mm in thickness?

Those 1mm picks are not exactly "heavy" to me.

I used a Cactus as a Pick once.


It made a hell of a mess of the strings.

I've never done it again!!!

Brings new meaning to the words "sharp, pointy looking guitar"

Just got my order of Cactus Picks in and love them. As of right now I plan on retiring my old picks. Seems like such a no brainer. Why hasn't anyone done little grips on picks before now?

Some have done this before, actually, but for some reason they didn't realize how awesome it was? Or we didn't provide enough feedback? I have this otherwise-strange "wirething" pick that has the same bumps on the thumb side and it's an amazing grip. The downside it's the rest of the pick is a steel wire and not so awesome.

The grips are great tho, same size as the ones on the cactus pick design but slightly denser population of the bumps.
