The cheap locks are thatbpoor quality they can be a pig to pick.

This does not mean they are good.

Don't try to learn on cheap locks as you will pull your hair out.

Hi mate
:welc:

Get stuck right in, have a read of the files in the library section, Check out the videos in that section too.
Pop in to "what I picked today" and see what has been going on!

Simple answer here mate is to have a look in the Newbies section as there are many many threads on what picks to move on to. For me i’d say the SouthOrd 2010 set.. but have a look in the threads for other equally good options and recommendations .
