    Hi, anyone out there got a Begali Sculpture Swing cootie/sideswiper key, I'm interested in any views on it, only one review on eHam?

    I have a Begali HST cootie, a nice enough key which also doubles as single lever paddle, very handy at times.. However the paddle is very precise to the point of having no real 'feel' to it and can make my finger/thumb quite numb after prolonged use, I am a rag chewer rather than a '599 73' guy.

    Any views on this key would be much appreciated.

    I also own a Begali HST. The Begali HST was designed to be a single lever paddle with a switchable sideswiper option. It is far too stiff for a sideswiper but it will work in a pinch. I suspect the Begali Sculpture Swing will be much more what you are looking for. It is a dedicated cootie. -Joe N3HEE

    Thanks for that Joe, that's what I was thinking, looking at the u-tube videos the paddle movement seems much softer, probably more of a hacksaw blade feel to it. 73 my friend.
