I see that Apollo Picks have a pick endorsed by Mike Marshall made from glass infused PEI. Anyone know anything about this material and how it should sound ?

Polyetherimide. (I hope I got that right, maybe?)

ULTEM is a brandname for PEI resin. Like other resins it can be mixed with fillers like glass fiber to fortify it.

So yeah, it's an Ultem pick. $35? What d'ya think?

And doesn't Mike Marshall endorse BC picks?

My Apollo MM pick arrived and I like it very much ! I like my BC picks also however ! None of the many brands I have are the best but just a little different sound ! This MM pick produces just as much volume but with less brightness than a BC. A little more mellow ! I am not good at describing sound but the feel of this pick and sound is great TO ME !
