If you like old school lock picks, then the Elite series picks are some of the finest currently on the market. These picks are virtually identical to the older Southord Max Yield picks, but the surface edges on the Elites are smooth and Southord's are rough. I like to belief the metal is better on the Elite picks in comparison, but only time will tell. So far so good Multipick! I like the fact that so many picks can fit in their case with very little bulkiness. The picks are packed very well with a lot of attention to detail. In some way, I like knowing the picks only have a 30 year warranty, placing the planned obsolescence in line with reality, unlike other replacement gimmick warranties from other manufacturers.
