Don't you mean gauge?

I go between extremes. For most of my heavy work, i use a Dunlop Big Stubby, either 2mm or 3mm. For other stuff, i use (amazingly) 0.46mm light pink Delrins.

I guess 1mm is the popular choice after all.

For overall clean articulation and speed... I have found nothing better than the Dunlop 1.14 Sharpie Tortex..

The also make a 1.35 and a 1.50 in the sharpie.

I don't like the Stubby's.....way to rounded tip...they feel worn out when they are new.

The Dava control picks are ok.

I alternate between the Dunlop Jazz III's, Pickboy Jazz 1.5, and the Dunlop 3mm Little Stubby's. Anything lighter than 1mm is far too flexible for my tastes.
