The Axis shape is a tri-sided pick with most rounded tips we offer. This essentially gives you 3 picks in one. Nothing wrong about that. Rounded tips create a softer, less bright tone compared to pointed tips. This creates the softest tone for all our acrylic picks. The rounded corners glide through the strings with ease. The Striker and Stealth are also tri-sided models, with the Stealth being the most pointed and the Striker in between.
There are 4 sizes: Mini (Jazz size), Big Mini, Standard (Traditional size) and XL.
Mini: .96" wide, .93" tall
Big Mini: 1.06" wide, 1.02" tall
Standard: 1.16" wide, 1.12" tall
XL: 1.26" wide, 1.22" tall
There are also several grip holes to choose from. Grip holes are not available for the 1.5mm thickness.
There are many variations combining size, thickness, grip holes and choice of polished bevels. There is definitely a pick for every guitar player.
The bevels on each pick are shaped on a grinding wheel which creates rough bevels. Those bevels are then polished or left unpolished (which we call ‘Master Finish’).
The Polished version glides across the strings with very little effort.
The Master Finish (unpolished) version is a bit brighter and creates a different release off the string. It allows you to ‘dig in’ a bit more. It is just a personal preference.

Excellent quality but I don't know how long they will last. It is fast and has smooth string release and is as quiet and sounds similar to other acrylic picks that I have. The 2.0 is similar in size, shape and thckness to V-Picks Medium Round and Dunlop's Jazztone 207. Although a bit thicker than the 207. It's tone is brighter than the Dunlop Jazztone, and it chirps less than the V-Pick Medium Round. The Axis 3.0 seems to be a good jazz tone type pick because its sound is thicker and a bit less focused like round tip picks are.
Use these if you like the acrylic sound.
