I play primarily finger style, but will occasionally use a pick. On the rare occasions I do, I use super-flexible .46 mm.

i play fingers always, always try to not use a pick but when you have sixteenth notes that last long or play bands like MUSE its always better to play with a pick

Depends on what I'm playing. For my high school Jazz Band, I use fingers, but when I play my standard stuff, Five Finger, Disturbed, ect. I use a pick. I just like the tone a little more, but I like fingers too.

I use a 1.0 or a 1.15mm
I mainly use fingers, but there are times that call for both / one or the other. There are a couple of jams use picking and fingering in the same song. I used to only use a pick, my instructor took it and threw it across the room one night in class. Funny. There are times that call for one or the other though, the nice sharp “attack” notes in some metal/rock songs require picking.

It's easy once you get used to it.
