I think it's time to graduate to opaque locks.

I picked my set of training locks today. All of them.

I started the set today.

Nice! I got a starter set for my birthday a few weeks ago, and I'm still picking the cutaway (but opaque) beginner lock it came with. I also have a lock with spools and a lock with serrated pins, but I haven't yet gotten used to actually feeling out the pins inside the lock--I'm mostly successful when I can watch the pins move through the cutaway window. That feels a little bit like cheating, or at least slowing down my skill development.
That's what I mean by opaque, all my locks are clear resin, so I am *definitely* cheating
