Picks have better tone control. I use X-Heavy (2.21) for some Manson and then a light (.73) on some Manson

I use my fingers all the time hardly ever use a pick. The pick has a great sound but I can't help playing with my fingers.

when you master fingers you're going to love it and never leave it, but before… I've always had those kind of doubts - Don't I play better with a pick? Isn't it easier? Doesn't it sound better? But yeah… After the time I love playing fingerstyle, even if the original bassline is picked. Nothing better than fingerpicked Sepultura

My wife prefers the fingerstyle over a pick.

I can play finger style easily so no actually not everyone will prefer it. It's just a preference
