great field key  Time owned: more than 12 months
light weight very small

best field work, hiking camping
paddles ive ever used

when qrp rig goes in the back pack
the GM 707 comes along

not a big sit on desk set of paddles

don't expect it to be like a Shurr Profi II

OK, but could be better  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The GM707 is a "Micro" sized paddle. It is well built. Since it is so light in weight, you need to hold it (or attach it to something) when in use. In this respect, the GM707 is no different than other "micro" or "mini" sized paddles. A "Home Base" for GM707 micro paddle is available, which is a handy accessory.

I find the contact spacing and tension adjustments of the GM707 to be somewhat limited. In comparison, adjustment of my Schurr "Mini-Portabel" paddle is easy to perfrom, and is precise. Better adjustment capability would make the GM707 a much better key.

You may like the feel of the GM707. For me, the feel is somewhat "clunky." But "feel" is a subjective thing.

Would I but the GM707 again? Probably not. It just doesn't have the kind of feel that I like. This does not make it a bad key. It's just not for me.
