Cute, but small  Time owned: more than 12 months
These do the job they promise to do... they are easy to put together, small in footprint, and do a nice job.

Not the most tightly machined paddles you'll ever owned, but perhaps the most elegantly simple. And the brass is nice and solid.

The base comes with 4 of those semi-spherical clear plastic feet... I don't find they stay in position on my desk very well. You need something there, to give clearance to the wiring, which runs beneath the base plate. I constructed a little jig with some molding to hold the paddle unit in place, yet let it pop out for portable use, and it now sits solidly on my desk.

Negatives: the spring is lightweight, giving a maximum sending speed in the 20-25 wpm range I should think. I also expect it to lose force at some point, althought it has not so far.

Nice little fun paddle  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Great little paddle. Fun to build and use. Bought it to use with my IC-703+ at the cabin, FD etc. It's a lot easier to build if you just look at the pictures online but comes with instruction. Can't go wrong for 30 bucks. Mike WA3SLN
