Went and got the mail and I was SO VERY happy to see my new picks from LockNewbie. I got a short hook and a bogata to go with my long feeler, and replaced my existing short hook and half diamond in my carry set. I am still going to keep my set of bogata from Rai, because how could I not??
This should about do it for me, on a day to day carry-and-practice set. I can get into a Master 140 in about 20 seconds using the long feeler and my custom tensioner. Rai’s bogatas will get me into a lock with no security pins in under ten seconds usually.
The bogata/short hook combo seems to be a great combination for spool and mushroom pins. They have the same feel, so I can start with the handled bogata to get a false set, and then move to the VERY delicate short hook to pop the lock.
I got Gabrielle a bogata and a ball feeler too – it should work well with her picking style. And they are RED. All in all, very happy.
