The ZN3-V is a vertical brass iambic paddle.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The ZN-V arrived in perfect condition in Omaha having been carefully packaged by Tony.

My heavy hand requires a heavy key, and the beautifully crafted ZN-V at 4 lbs 11 oz does the job. Large 7/8" rubber feet on the bottom increase the key's stability. Using the key is a pleasure, and I don't have to hold the key down to keep it from moving around. Ball bearings make for smooth operation. Contact points are gold-plated silver. The easily adjustable settings are set close on my key and reassuring clicks are audible during operation. Magnetic return with no springs is a definite plus. The brass has a tarnish-preventing finish and adjustment screws are stainless steel. Being a Nebraskan, I chose Husker red for the finger pieces and added the personalized optional call sign plate.

The ZN-V is a high quality brass iambic vertical paddle that will last more than a lifetime and provide dependable, enjoyable service. I am delighted to recommend this key without reservation.
