Hi all, just started learning to pick and am really enjoying it, I've gone down the route of transparent practice locks and have actually picked a real one ( ok it was only a Master no 5 ) and would welcome some advice on what my next stage should be

Howdy and welc =)
It's different how we all learn best but I would get some brass abus xx/40 and or a repinnable practice lock with some extra pins.
Also, check boot sales and such and try to get hold of some different euro cylinders. Good luck! =)

Hi, I have a set of Petersen picks ( Kens set ) and a set of UKBumpkeys Polaris rakes, plus a cheapo set from Curious Smith ( which are great ) and a variety of tensioners
