Synthetic "feel" vs Genuine TS pick "feel"

I recently acquired a real TS pick. In comparing it with a bluechip pick, same style, same beveling, I noted that the TS seems to "drag or scrape" along the wound strings where the bluechip feels smooth on all strings. The TS is fine on the non-wound types.
Since this is my first experience with TS, is this a normal feel with a TS pick. I love the tone. Just wondering about the difference I felt.
Thanks for any input

Hi John,
We were in MT not long ago. I did a Martin Guitar clinic with Larry Barnwell in Bozeman. Keep and eye on my website www.jimnunally.com. There is a schedule page there where you can find out where I will be.
I am pretty sure John Reischman and the Jaybirds will be in MT some time in 2010. Not sure just when.
All the best to you,

Thank you, Jim, for the information. Will be on the look out for them this coming year.
BTW--loved your interpretation of the Clinch Mtn/Pike County medley. Great tunes
Happy New Year
