Chime in on the thread with Dunlop's phone number and the price they're charging per bag.

Leave it alone, let the guy enjoy his capitalism. Besides, we don't want them to run out.

So a guy's selling Adamas picks for $4 each on another forum. Part of me wants to chime in with Dunlop's phone number and the real price, and another part of me is happy to let him enjoy his capitalism and let Karma decide what to do with him.

I'm pretty sure these are just the currently-available Dunlops, not the NOS originals. Here's the post:
I have a bunch of these. Yes, you can find a company in europe that makes something similar, but Im a purist; why not use exactly what Phil Lesh, Mike Gordon and Trey use.
These are no longer being manufactured. I am asking $4 per pick shipped, min 4 picks per order please. Will last forever but several might be good as gifts or if you ever misplace your pick.

Been using Dunlop Adamas Graphite for 5 years and they have spoiled me for using anything else when i need to play with a pick.

Those appear to be the "newer" ones.

Ah, the cool thng is that not everyone on the sites are going to make a run to the bank for bags of picks...
but, OTOH I made a run to get 2 more bags. I still have a bag I lost a year ago somewhere in my house, they were NOS with all the raised correct graphics...Did they change the design with the new runs? They just mentioned they just got a new run and have over 200 bags in immediate inventory. I too have spoiled myself with only being able to use these too! It seems like nothing else really compares.
I tried a petrified piece of wood yesterday ($20/per pick at this local guitar store), it tore up the strings and sounded horrible btw. Almost like using a quarter.
