Reviews Summary for NT9K Pro-Pump SKCC Club Key
NT9K Pro-Pump SKCC Club Key Reviews: 11 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $TBD
Description: The first key was designed by Bill Crosier, NT9K and branded for the Straight Key Century Club. Following this introductory run for the SKCC, planning is to begin production on various other styles and designs.

This key will be called the NT9K Pro-Pump - SKCC Club Key 2010 Version. It will weigh in at about 4 pounds. The weight comes from all the half inch thick brass parts and the half inch thick powder coated steel base. The key base measures 8 7/8th by 2 1/2 inches.

The key makes use of ball bearings for a fast and smooth action. Balance and physics of the lever's mass, insures precision feel and tactile response as the large 1/4 inch contacts come to close with just the right amount of flex and bounce. Careful attention to the materials the contact strips are made from, gives this key a professional action and may allow you to send for longer periods of time with less fatigue.
Product is not in production.

Incredible!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just received mine and was impressed by the ease of adjustment and how nicely balanced it is. It's heavy and sits very stable on my desk and just has a nice feel to it. I'm far more impressed with this key than the LTA Marconi key that I'm currently using. In the interest of full disclosure, I am a founding member of the SKCC and am not receiving any form of compensation from, nor involved in any way the the manufacture of this key.
