An Instrument, not a Tool  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Bought it, took 12 days to get here. Waiting for a Begali to arrive makes time stand still, in this day and age. Exceptional packaging. When set up with feeler gauge for gap, the amount of motion perceived at the paddles is imperceptible to me. You hint at touching it, and it's sending, there is no lag time. It is built like a fine instrument, the adjustment is so micro fine.

The jack on the paddle requires you pay attention and seat the plug with tip all the way in firmly, do that you get all dit and dahs. It would not be fair to compare a Bencher to this, due to price point. The Turtle finish on my Expedition is fantastic, just be sure to wipe it down with silicon, don't use spray, protect the contacts, spray on a cloth, then wipe silicon on. Failure to maintain like a fine firearm made of steel will result in rust from salty hands or salty air. Get the Professional finish if you do salt air, and tropical or humid activations. 
Product is in production.
