bump-proof padlocks?

I'm looking for more information on bump-proof padlocks.

Is there a general consensus on which locks are bump-proof?

Is there any measurable difference in, er, "bumpiness" between a regular doorlock and a padlock, or are both types of locks equally bumpable?

The "Abloy Protec" is supposedly bump-proof, but at $200+ (up here in Canada anyway), it's not an easy sell. Do older Abloy padlocks (with the half-moon key) stand up as well as the Protec to bumping? If so, are they still available in the Vancouver BC area anywhere?

If I don't want to spring for an Abloy, what are my other options? Will a good disc lock padlock do instead? If so, what do professionals recommend?


(please post, don't email. it likely won't get through my hyperaggressive spam filter)

Why not purchase a Master guarded shackle combination padlock for $20?
