Peterson Bogie 1, 2, or 3?

I'm looking at buying my first bogota style pick and would like to know which one you guys think is the best. I was already planning on getting a few Peterson picks. So I was hoping to get them all on the same order. But I don't know which one to get.

Any advice on Peterson's Bogie 1, 2, or 3 would be appreciated. Also please let me know if you think I'd be better off just getting a bogota style from elsewhere.

Why not get the original - and best - Bogata picks made? Designed and made by our member, Rai.

Definitely not out of the question and I do like giving credit where credit is do. But a few things I was considering were;
1) Being my first bogota, I wanted something cheaper to practice with.
2) I'm a lil impatient and wanted to get all the picks I wanted on one order.

Sooner or later I will be contacting Rai

spend a little extra and get real ones now, when you buy cheap tools you buy them twice.

I'd love to buy a real Bogota, however I don't think Rai is currently making them. The Serepick Titatniums are alright and are definitely a more polished product than the Petersons. I carry the Serepick versions as part of my everyday carry. I also have the Petersons as part of my kit, I prefer the handles on them and use those if i have my entire kit on me.

Thanks for the info. Which line do you use (classic, euro, or slender)? Also, which of three styles do use seem to use most often (1, 2, or 3)?

I have the bogie 2, in the purple. I like it, but the finish is terrible. Sent it to Kerpeesh for a polishing.

Heres a vid of it in action. https://youtu.be/WlYRHj7ByAg

I would like a Rai bogota one day, after all he invented it.

Yep, I was in touch with him just a couple weeks ago, unfortunately he's not currently making them so you'll need to source elsewhere.

That's too bad, I wanted to order a new set from Rai to give as a special gift to someone. I havent heard much from him, so I hope he's doing well and cant wait till a time we can order some more from him. I've been trying to make some of my own with the bristles I got my hands on, but I'm just learning home brew pick making, so it's slow going.

Peterson has a version in 0.018" of an inch, I love these.

Given that Rai is not able to supply these picks at this time what are some of the best alternatives.

Re: Peterson Bogie 1, 2, or 3?

As you're in Ontario, Sparrows make a good version.

jimylongs mentioned Serepick. I believe they're the only manufacturer who rai actually has a deal with. Have a look:

http://www.serepick.com/products/index.html

I bought the SO Pagoda set just after they came out, and I don't recommend them. I didn't want to buy them, no, what I wanted was the Serepick set. Thing was, at the time, Serepick wouldn't ship abroad unless you were in the US Army, Navy or Diplomatic Service.

Long story short about the Pagoda set. They can be made to work, but you need TOK tension. The set doesn't have a TOK tension wrench.

You still won't be opening any Medecos with 'em though. And I'm a SouthOrd fan!
