My question is does the rubber stretch? It seems it would have to be very tight to keep the "nail" in place well enough to work as a pick.

says they should last a couple of months, so something is subject to deterioration .

I guess he's worked out the value quotient for himself though, eh? For one who plays like, say, James Taylor, they might really be worthwhile. I believe one of you fellas posted a video here where Taylor went over all the machinations he goes through to essentially build up artificial nails on his own fingernails, and I cringe just thinking about it. Of course I don't (can't) play that way, and traditional fingerpicks suit me fine. But I can sure see preferring the slip-on jobs.
