Bigger than the Jazz 3. More like jazz 3 XL. But I love the material and the pick is 2mm thick which is awesome.

I take it these are the ones you don't throw into the crowd at the end of a gig?

Depends if you’re prepared to take someone’s eye out?

Video or it didn't happen. ;-) Seriously though, what about it made the difference? How's it different to a regular Dunlop of the same weight?

Just recently I started turning my pick and using the larger corners for faster passages and it seemed to make a positive difference. After years on the same green Dunlops I'm starting to wonder if I should investigate something else. Also, I bend my picks up around my thumb. Can't use a flat one at all. That's part of what I like about the Dunlops. They'll hold the shape I bend them into.

I think it’s the mass that makes a difference. I used to use v-picks for the same reason, and that was great for speed. And when I talk about speed I really mean synchronisation. But the v-pick have an annoying chirping sound which I didn’t like. The hawks have a normal and good tone.
