There was a problem with the Street Cuffs tubular lock mechanism that (like other such mechanisms on more reputable locks) turned out to be very easy to pick. Now Master uses a different mechanism that defeats that pick technique.
Whatever you choose is going to be a compromise between security, weight, and easy of carry. It's not a simple call. Learn more about the risks you'll be facing. To me, the Street Cuffs look like a good choice and have a nice mounting bracket, but they are expensive. And Master still doesn't have the best reputation.
Also pay attention to the reimbursement programs offered by the lock companies. I believe Master has a $3500 "theft insurance policy" on the Street Cuffs. Others have similar.
