Works great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought this along with my Original Deluxe bug. It was shipped separately by HRO (you guys are great by the way) and that allowed me to use the bug without it and when installed, what a difference it makes. A high quality and well engineered attachment - highly recommended.

Surprisingly good!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was apprehensive about this thing - esp because of the cost. Well! What a surprise! I installed it on my Vibroplex Original and it hasn't been off since. I adjusted it exactly to the speed I'm most comfortable with and it actually helped improve my sending. Easy to adjust down to very slow speeds when needed. I Love it!

Very cool!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Picked one of these up in Dayton - 2008. I was a little disappointed at first at what little you get for $30.

But - this has turned out to be one of the best deals from Dayton.

The finish matches my Original Deluxe perfectly. Because of the little extra amount of weight that it adds plus the simplicity of speed changes, I now have a bigger range of adjustment (I can go much slower) and I can change speeds very quickly and easily.

Very nice - money well spent.

Nice !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months


I bought this new to go with a new Vibroplex Anniversary Bug purchased at the same time.

It works well and looks good. My fear was that it would look like a goofy after market add-on. Not to worry... It looks like it belongs on the bug.

It slows the dits down nicely.

Very Useful Accessory !  Time owned: 3 to 6 months

I previously avoided owning a bug, partly because of its speed variation being so limited. This is no longer a problem thanks to the Vari-Speed. With my arrangement of a medium weight at the end of the pendulum and the Vari-Speed (with a large weight attached) directly behind it, I can vary the speed between approximately 15 and 28 wpm. This can be done well within 5 seconds. One could also reduce the overall weight for a very versatile QRQ arrangement.

Thanks Vibroplex!

Jack, N0NV
