best keys for the money  Time owned: more than 12 months
im a 30+ year extra class ham who works 90 percent cw skcc # 15055 . im heavy handed and have used many keys both straight and paddles . i bought a set of these on a whim based only on thier weight 2.5 lbs . what a shock i got ! ive been slapping these keys around { they dont move on the desk } nearly every day for 5 + years and NEVER had to reset them . i love the over sized paddles , the keys are very smooth and consistent in thier action . i work mostly 25 to 30 wpm and they never miss a beat . my benchers now make a great paper weight . hi hi . these keys are no longer being made and thats a real shame as in my opinion they cant be beat for the money as well as for how great they work , long they last and remain true to settings . as stated in a previous review they wont win any beauty contests but if your looking for a great set of paddles at a great price that can take a licking and keep on clicking and your lucky enough to come across a set give them a try you wont be sorry .

Better Then It Looks  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Purchased thru Milestone Technologies, Inc. And advertised on their website as NOT a precision key. But, you know what. It adjusts well, stays in adjustment and is extremely stable in use. Sure its kind of an ugly duckling, but it works just fine and can be set to fairly close tolerances. If you are looking for a basic paddle, the Katsumi KM-23 might just fit your requirements.
