This key was bought from HA8UG at a hammarket.
He had about 10 different keys from Yani. HA9KN
All were new as HA8KN is a friend of HA8UG and HA8DU.
I tried all keys at the table also the Iambic paddles both with magnetic retuns and spring returns.
I found this key to be the best.
I buoght it and got a unused new one in a box from them.
The key was adjusted perfectly and mounted perfect, with beautiful aligned contacts and very precise produced and finished parts.
It looks very much better as the ones I saw from MFJ.
I triad about 10 paddles up unil now and this is the first key that can handle the competition from my homebrew paddles.
You can almost close the contacts and set the key up very light.
For me it is a perfect key for not to much money.
It has very beautiful finished parts and all screws were high quality and the chrome work is perfect.
Also this key came with 1/4 inch plug and wire nicely assembled with wires in the base of the key even at that point the finish was well thought and well done.
As I am a metalworker my-self I know how to recognize fine workmanship.
HA8KN did a very good and very precize job.
Big compliments to him.
