I couldn't bring myself to using the snot stuff  :( Various brands/styles/thicknesses of picks have been arriving in the mail, and the Dunlop Max-Grip picks win hands down grip-wise.

I bought a dozen 'medium' picks a couple of years ago.  I still have most of them.  I loaned out a couple that were never returned.  I use picks so seldom there's little chance I'll need to buy more any time soon.

I mostly grow my own picks.  I use 'Healthy Hoof' (from Amazon) on them to make them stronger and less likely to split.  The darn stuff works!

Gorilla snot is yellow weather stripping cement, and he uses the Healthy Hoof (real stuff) on his finger nails to make them stronger so he can use them rather than finger picks.

I can be a bit of a jokester indeed.  But kdbgoat nailed it.  Sort of. 

Gorilla Snot (for guitarists and drummers) is REAL!  https://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Snot-Original-Drumstick-Guitar/dp/B0002GL5S8/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1524615415&sr=8-6&keywords=Gorilla+Snot

Healthy Hoof :  https://www.amazon.com/Gena-Healthy-Hoof-Cream-Ounce/dp/B0006Q00ZI/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1524616878&sr=8-1&keywords=Healthy+hoof  (Read the reviews!)

I haven't even started on nose grease for guitarists yet.

 ;D ;D ;D
