Are there any small, adjustable paddles being made with contacts near the fingerpieces, instead of "on the other side of the pivots" ?  The "finger - pivot - contact" design is almost universal (WBL V22 excepted) and I'm wondering if there's a commercial (or kit) paddle that has the fingerpieces and contacts at one end of the arms, and a pivot at the other.  

I _think_ the Autronic was built that way, but I've never seen one "in the flesh".

Thanks.

The Paddlette Paddles have the contacts near the fingerpieces but the "pivot" is accomplished by bending
the arms which are a thin flexible brass stock. These are very tiny and lightweight paddles but have a pretty good feel.
I have the older unimproved version that doesn't have the stiffeners on the arms so it probably has a slightly mushier feel than the new ones.
