Lookgs Great, but ...  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Lovely looking little beast.

Somebody might be able to adjsut it so that it does not feel so "sloppy" but that someone is not me. I think the main problem is that the springs are too weak. If you adjust the contacts so that there is a short throw, you will likely end up with a continuous string of dits (or dahs, depending ).

Keep in mind that I am new to CW and dogmeat (non-ham for Lid) at sending.

Review of my newly purchased CT91 Single Paddle  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just purchased the CT91 single paddle and was immediately impressed with the look of the paddle. Excellent workmanship and one of the only keys I have used that stays put when you are using it.
But, when I started to use the key I was very disappointed! I found it very hard to set up and when I seemed to get it just right it started to stick just giving out continuous dits or dahs!
No matter how I try I cannot seem to achieve any adjustment using the springs. They are not strong enough and need replacing with stronger ones.
I am disappointed to say the least and have gone back to my old Hi-Mound Manipulator until I obtain stronger springs and try again.

Nice to look at but poor feel  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The CT-91 paddle is beautiful to behold but as soon as you touch the finger pieces you will notice that the single paddle version has an extremely sloppy center point. Needs stiffer and more readily adjustable springs. But the workmanship is without equal.

Beautiful  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Fit and finish is without equal.A beauty to behold.............But The springs ARE TOO WEAK!
Anthony,the seller should provide new springs that
actually adjust,to everyone who purchased this key.
Bottom line:I would be about perfect with stronger
springs

Nice Paddle  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The paddle is extremely well made, very good build quality and certainly worth the 60 i paid, as previousely mentioned the tension springs are not quite as strong as i`d have liked, but these are easilly replaced if more tension is required.

Overall its a great paddle, which works fine on my FT-897. So well done to the manufacturer for building a quality paddle at a reasonable price.
