I'm looking for a durable rubber type of material for a guitar pick holder. The material I'm looking for will need to have flexibility to pick individual notes of a guitar, but needs to return to its original shape/position as fast as possible for picking faster notes.

I've tried vulcanized rubber sheets of different thicknesses (1 mm to 4 mm), it has good flexibility, but returning to its original shape is very slow.

The material from a bouncy ball is the closest material I can imagine for what I need, but I need something in a sheet form.

    $\begingroup$ I think "rubber type" and "very fast return" exclude each other. It would need some hard flexible plastics or metal. The softer and more compressible material is (like rubber), the weaker are the forces returning it to its original shape, causing slow return. $\endgroup$
