It Blew Up  Time owned: unknown months
This key seemed decent at first, but as I used it more and more, I found that it just didn't hold up. The adjustments for spacing kept moving, so was constantly having to be adjusted. The magnet wasn't very strong, and moved a lot too. The feel was very loose, unless the spacing was super close. During a massive EU pile on 20cw one night, it blew up on me. Literally. Springs and magnets flew all over the place. I put it back together, but it never worked right again. I didn't really like it in the first place though. Just my opinion. If it can't handle a pile up, it won't work for me.
