Looks interesting, John.  We'll see how the practice goes after my bug arrives!

"Just a few weeks ago the podcast DIT DIT DOT NET featured the president and owner of the Vibroplex company.  Lots of good info on the history and future of the company and all.  Everyone who is interested in the Vibroplex should listen in.

DitDit.fm is the podcast for Amature Radio Morse code and CW operators."

I found it interesting the Robbins says that he uses a Vibrokeyer and for several pretty good reasons.  I bought a junker of Ebay and went to the trouble of completely refurbishing it.  I am finding that it is arguably the best key that I have used In my 39 years of hamdom.  Love the thing!

I used a Vibrokeyer when they first came out (single lever).  It was very good, and felt like my bug.  The Autronic single lever was much better, however.  My current favorite key is the ZN-SLR, followed closely by the ZN-9B. 

I received the Vibroplex Original that I ordered.  It looks beautiful, but still sounds horrible (my fault).  I have ordered a 1.9 oz. weight from 2B Radio parts.  Hopefully this will slow down the dits to a reasonable practice speed.
