Have anyone used these? They're almost half price of similar Abus and Kryptonite and I need a new lock for my new (soon to arrive!) bike.

I have one, a pitbull , I think.

Never attacked it with power tools so I cant tell you how strong it is ::-)

I bought it as it got a very good review in C+  a few years back  and was a good balance between price and performance.

I have the Bulldog ATB.  Weighs a ton and is very solidly put together, easy to operate and plenty of spare keys.

I got that one because the received wisdom is that the ones with a smaller internal shackle diameter leave less room for the tea leaves to insert a bottle jack or something.  IIRC I got it for about 27 quid from Wiggle but they don't seem to stock that one now.

I ordered the Pitbull Mini DT bundled with one of their cables from here:

It was that or the Kryptonite Mini Evolution, as I refuse to carry around either a Granite or NY Lock.
