Nice vintage keyer  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I picked up one recently to use with my Omni C. This is Ten Tec's Ultramatic keyer adapted to match the older Omni series. It uses electromagnets instead of springs for paddle tension so has has a unique feel if your used to spring loaded paddles. You adjust tension with a pot on the back of the keyer. Once adjusted for your fist it's action is very smooth with hardly any contact bounce or slop.It seems to work best with a light to light medium touch and it's heavy enough not to "walk". I find it plays as well as any paddle that I've used,and that includes some some costing much more. Wins over the Bencher hands down. Just be ready for a learning curve, if your used to more conventional paddles. 73
