I'll stick with "lion" and have a Singha.  NOT the export variety, even if it means I have to go to Bangkok to drink it!

Best tasting beer I EVER had, in 1993.

I have the Graciella.  I love the key and I hardly ever use my Vibroplex paddle now.  The Graciella is unique in that it has a vertical orientation and the height of the paddle is adjustable.  I would love to have one of each available Begali but that would be a considerable investment.  The next one I purchase will be one that has magnetic spacing.  I would like to see how well that works for very closely spaced contacts.

I just got a Pearl this weekend and it's fantastic.  Best paddles I've ever used.

Another vote for the Signature. I tried one out twice at Dayton (along with their other keys) over 2 Dayton trips (also tried some N3ZN keys.. which were also very nice). At the time I think the Signature was the top end when I first looked at it. It was my favorite key to use when I tried them. I like them with the longer paddles they offer (they sent two sets of the anodized aluminum paddles of my choice). Now the Signature is probably considered one if their mid-priced keys. I hope to try some of the newer keys out if I head out to Dayton next year.

I've had my Pearl key a few years now; great key no problems. Also have a N3ZN key; it has real nice touch to it. I'm set for now, I sold all my other keys.  Smiley
I have a pictures of both in my QRZ page.

Now have a Signature to go with my HST. I took the HST off my desk but it got lonely, so I wired the two in parallel.

At the Hartford Convention I tried all Iambics at his booth and settled in on the Sculpture.  This is obviously very subjective really analogous to picking out golf clubs.  My wife and her Mom told me to pick out a Begali for my birthday present, they really encourage me in this great hobby.

Hi,

just 2c regarding the paddle using the bearings...

According to my experiences it is better to use the covered bearings instead of the open one because of the dust coming in will make issue after some time. You will need to maintaining the paddle more often compare to paddles using the covered bearings.

I used the Begali Magnetic Professional and except this task the paddle worked excellent equipped with short metal finger pieces.

Good luck,
