This is my 2nd N3ZN paddle, and while certainly not cheap for me to purchase across the border here in Canada, what with the low dollar and whatnot, is well worth the money.

After 30 or so years, I used to think my Benchers were a really nice paddle, but after using some others like Tony's, I see how loosey-goosey they are. Tony's are built wonderfully. I won't ever buy another $50-$100 set of paddles from anyone.

Both my N3ZN paddles have been custom built with specs/colours not the defaults, however I am sure the defaults will be perfect for 95% of hams anyways....but I like things to match the shack or the car colours and design, so Tony worked with me.

Awesome product and the packing is like I have never seen before. Short of being run over by a forklift, I doubt you could have the key you paid your hard earned money for be damaged in shipment. This is reality at times for buying something from far away. I doubt any of Tony's keys will EVER be damaged in shipping.

Not sure what more I could say that hasn't already been said 100 times.

The ZN-9DX was on a real tight time line and I ordered it exactly 1 month before Xmas to be opened on Xmas morning, knowing he was a couple weeks behind. Guess what - I opened it Xmas morning !

Thanks Tony.
