Hello all,

Just a quick intro, I'm a new picker just doing it for fun and the challenge. I started out picking a padlock I had sat around from Aldi using a set of SouthOrd picks from Amazon. I quickly got hooked and bought a set of Sparrows and gradually bought some more locks, using /r/lockpicking and going up the belt rankings, but only up to orange so far being able to reliably pick an Abus 64TI/40 using SPP.

I'm hoping to join in a community to share locks etc.

Cheers!

And here is my small corner of the lock picking world

I didn't like the SouthOrd case so used that as an excuse to get the Sparrows set, but then thinned out the Sparrows and put all the rakes etc in with the SouthOrds but I do like the SouthOrd hook so use that plus I added a set of TOK tensioners.

Excellent, you're very definitely on the right track. There is a ton of advice on here about how to climb those rankings, dive into the site and start asking questions. Best wishes, Michael.
