Sweet machine.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This key is smooth, feels right with my fist and gives very good feedback as to my sending. Some keys do not quite give my fingers the physical feedback where the stop is, the rebound pressure, etc. This key tells my fingers all that they want to know, I'm not sure I need a sidetone with it. I can now send a bit faster and more accurately - less stress and easier for me to know exactly where I am at. I love this key. I would compare it with the Kent SK-1 very favorably, my other favorite straight key.

Beautiful and Easy Sending  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was looking for a small straight key that doesn't take much room on my desk. The base is a little over 5 inches long, and 2 1/2 inches wide.
It is very light but has a weight underneath, and the keys excellent balance keeps it in place
on the desk. The larger wheel adjusts the magnetic
tension and the smaller adjusts the contact gap.
And its very smooth at sending. Just what I was looking for. Thus the 5 rating.
