I found the Alaska picks very uncomfortable. Also, you need to have a bit of nail anyway for them to work properly and I found that was enough nail for me to play with.

Long story short, it sounds great but theres a "click click click" at the start of each note you cant miss.

it can be done... but.... click click.
I thought that sounded quite good, the clicking didn't bother me. I listened to a couple of your clips with the picks and liked just how clear the tone was.....I think the clicking is a small price to pay for that tone. Have you heard of Jacques Stotzem? he plays exclusively with dunlop plastic fingerpicks....have a listen to him.
