This is about the only thumb pick that resembles a regular guitar pick. I have tried the light ones and find that the bit holding the pick on the thumb is too flimsy. The heavy one does the job OK. the only improvement I could suggest is to make that part on the light, medium and even the heavy picks more substantial so it stays on more securely, especially for those of us with big thumbs

I've tried these picks with both guitar and bass. I find I need the flexibility of changing the angle of the pick and these don't help. They are worth a try if you have sweaty hands and drop picks a lot at gigs, otherwise they'll sit in your drawer like they do in mine.

HASH(0x8c588828) out of 5 stars What a Blessing! 30 Jun. 2012
By Fly By Light - Published on Amazon.com

I had a nasty accident that caused me to lose feeling in my thumb. My thumb also does not sweat any more. It's amazing how your brain constantly adjusts how tightly you hold your pick, so you are not holding it too loosely when you make contact with the string, and you are not giving yourself cramps when you are just holding the pick, or you are between strums. Unfortunately, you have to feel what you are doing in order for the feedback loop to work. To make things even trickier, I realized to my dismay that you thumb needs just a bit of moisture on it to create adhesion with the pick, so it doesn't slip around when you are not holding it tightly. Being the part-time bass player several groups, I was dropping picks everywhere. Finger-picking still worked, but more often than not, I need the crisp attack of a pick.

This thumb pick was EXACTLY what the doctor ordered. It's similar in size, shape and feel to the old Fender tortoise shell. The loop holds the pick in place when I am holding the pick loosely in between strums or songs. In fact, I don't have to grab the pick at all if I'm relaxing between songs - it just stays in place. The holes in the pick create friction so that it stays in place, even when I don't squeeze at all. A cool extra benefit is that I can switch instantly between flat picking and finger picking.

My complaints are minor. First, the loop is a little irritating to the back of my thumb. That may be unique to me, as I have scar tissue there. Second, the picks seem not quite as durable as I am used to. The picking edge gets worn and rough, like any pick. If you press your luck, they WILL break between the edge and one of the holes. So, don't do that at gigs. Finally, the angle of the pick is kind of forced on you due to the contruction, so you have to get used to it. It did not take long for this old dog to learn that trick, so no big deal. All minor stuff.

This product was something of a miracle for me. The ergonomics of it will likely be beneficial to people with cramping and other issues. I can't speak to what it allows you to do differently; I just use it to do things the way I used to do them. Thanks, Herco!

HASH(0x8c588a50) out of 5 stars Great Thumbpics... 19 Jun. 2012
By 316Guy - Published on Amazon.com

I've ordered two sets of 24 packs of these picks and love them. I prefer the Heavy versus the Medium and have used both. When I first ordered them I wasn't sure if I would like this style of pick but soon became so used to them I no longer carry any other type of thumbpick with me in my guitar case. They won't give you as much feel as a regular pick if you are strictly using them in flatpick mode, but if you aren't moving from flatpicking to fingerstyle and back during a song, well, you can always swap out and change before the next song!

HASH(0x8c588cb4) out of 5 stars not for me 21 Sept. 2014
By matt shroyer - Published on Amazon.com
i can see how others may like these for flatpicking, but in my experience they are useless for finger picking.
if i am aggressive at all with it while finger picking it slips off. i think increased (over the usual) pick length (while nice for flat picking) increases the leverage when you pick i string and pries it. i would much prefer a ticker material.
it sounds alright, but not useful to me.
HASH(0x8c588c30) out of 5 stars Perfect for switching back and forth between flat-picking 24 Feb. 2015
By jerseymason - Published on Amazon.com

For the past 15 or so years I've only used these picks. Perfect for switching back and forth between flat-picking, drop-thumb and finger-picking. No other thumb pick I've come across allows for such versatility. They wear pretty quickly, I suspect its due to how they mold the plastic to wrap around the thumb. I perform 4-6 nights a week.. whenever another guitar player asks me about these picks, I give them one of mine to try at home. If they go out of business, I'll be screwed!
HASH(0x8c589240) out of 5 stars Great Picks for Guitar, and heavy enough for Bass 5 Jan. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The one thing I like about Hercos is that you can hold them like flat picks,and yet also use as a thumb pic (hard to explain, you just have to try them out for yourself to see what I mean). The Heavys are heavy enough to use on a bass. I played one on a bass for almost half a year before it broke from over use. Not bad for a pick used on a bass guitar. These picks are way superior to your run of the mill flat picks.
