ABUS 65/40 mushrooms

Stubbornly used this as my first practice lock. Then research showed how tricky this lock was. Also I demanded that spp was my only way , refusing to rake or bump. I single pin picked a few decent locks before my 'graduation' with the 65/40.now this little bigger is second nature, still despise mushroom pins I'd even go to say I prefer spools! Anyone come across this lock? Or was it me being a regard that hindered me?

I have that lock, but have yet to open it. I haven't given it that much time though, since I until recently didn't have any tension tools that fit the keyway.

Congrats on the opening!
From my experiense there is not really much difference between spools and mushrooms, they bahave the same way so next time you open one just treat them as normal spools :)
Have fun with my channel - VDE on YouTube

Just posted a video of me picking it last night. They are a nice little lock.

Re: ABUS 65/40 mushrooms

Just watched the vid. Puts me to shame, I tip my hat to you.

Just a side note there is a distinct 'V' in the Notting which used to give me a hard time, over setting trying to reach. Justifying my own inadequacy I think! Well done.
