Maybe he doesn't want to spend $5 for six when he could get the same thing for less. It might not sound like much, but it adds up if you eat through picks.
I bought a pack of PG picks to try them out. They were very good, but a bit too shallow for me.

I think they are just little bit to small for me.

I burned mine up really fast, maybe it's the material or that I use it differently since it smaller then what I usually use.

I use the Ibanez heavy "Sandpaper grip" picks and I love 'em but they're the same price as the Gilbert picks.

I really like the point on the sandpaper picks and the material they use sound nice to me. Solid attack but no "ping" in each picked note.

I switched from Ibanez Paul Gilbert's to Sandgrips, and they are the same or better in ever single aspect. Very recomendable.

I know whats perfect for you! Dunlop Big stubby 1.0 mm. Thats what I use! Very similar!
Actually, as a former Big Stubby user I can unequivocally state that they're not very similar because they sound a lot different.

The Ibanez picks are made of standard pick material (delrin if I recall correctly) and the Stubbies are made from a much harder plastic. The Ibanez picks have a smoother attack whereas the Stubbies has a much sharper attack and add a "ping" to the sound. Whether or not this is good is subjective but make no mistake, they are not similar in tone at all.

Those stubbies look rounded off while the Ibanez Sandgrips/PG's are flat. How can you say that they are the same when they differ in such a vital point?
