Have been looking at these Alaska Piks for a while, but the price seemed a bit steep.
Finally, saw the 12 pack for about 12 bucks, plus I recently got a resonator, so I decided to give them a go.
For a grown man, I have medium sized hands, and bought the medium sized piks.
First off, to echo everybody else, if you just pull them out of the bag and stick them on your fingers, you'll be pi**ed, because they will feel way too small. Fear not! What you have to do is a bit of preparation:
First, you DO have to have a bit of natural nail on the fingers you plan to use these picks on - used as intended, part of the pick goes over your finger like a metal pick, and part of the pick goes under the edge of your nail.
Flex the pick as if you were trying to turn it inside out - they are made of a resilient plastic that I have yet to break from bending. Bending them outward might be all you need to do.
If they still feel really tight after bending, you can snip the middle "pressure band" with a pair of fingernail clippers - this is described in the instruction sheet that comes with the picks. You can even snip down the wrap around parts a little bit.
Once you have them comfortable, you can file down any of the rough spots with nail file - there was a gal on a YouTube video that
provided a great hint to use a Sharpie and mark each pick for each finger.
Is all this worth it? In my opinion, yes! These picks feel quite comfortable now, and I took to using them on my resonator almost immediately (some people said it took them a bit longer to get used to). Love the tone I get out of these picks, and since I only use three of them on my right hand, the twelve pack should last me a while, unless I give some away. :)
