Anybody else out there use a bug for everyday CW use or is it just me?  If so, what model?

I use several: A GHD GN127WS, a 1927 Vibroplex Original, a 1948 Vibroplex Original, and sometimes an old Skillman "coffin key".  If they weren't so expensive (eBay) and hard to find, I'd have even more!

Hmmmm...I think anyone that works 40m, above 7.025 MHz will find many folks using bugs. My preference for the past 30 years has been a keyboard as I enjoy CW above 70 wpm. But I also have plugged into my Omni 6 and IC-781, a 1916 Blue Racer, a Zephyr, and a Mac P-500, each of which I have tweeked for many months to get them to 'feel' the way I like them to feel. I've even gotten to the point where people dont complain too much about 'ear pain' when I use 'em! As long as it's CW, it's gotta be fun.

I have a 1955 Vibroplex Presentation I got as a present.  I use it occasionally, but lately have been practicing to get my fist back in shape for putting it on the air.  By the end of summer, I am going to try to use it for every day for a while.
