The Pick Punch turns a $1.99USD placemat into poly 170 guitar picks. It took about 5 minutes to do everything including cutting the mat into strips. I had my doubts at first but I tested some of these out before making the video and they play very well with a slight soft but firm feel to them. They are somewhat "gentle" on the guitar finish and these play fast runs quite well. I played some bluegrass runs and they did not "hang" or "grab" at all and not too much "slap" on the strings either when strumming.
