Mandolin: Rest stroke/gypsy picking vs. Alternate picking

edited July 2018 in Mandolin
Not much going on here in the Mandolin section but I figured I'd throw this out there. I'm fairly comfortable/locked-in to alternate picking. The work I'd have to put in to essentially relearn picking for rest stroke/gypsy picking feels like it would be a major set back. I'm curious if anyone would care to share their mandolin experience with either or both picking styles. Does gypsy picking make a major difference for mandolin in the gypsy jazz style? Any examples of mandolin players that use strict rest stroke/gypsy picking? I don't know of any.
