These things can be outrageously expensive. I refuse to pay $200 or more for one, which limits me to their bottom line models, I suppose. Looks like the best I can do is $160 to $180. I have always used Bencher paddles, but now find I need a new one (sold the old one). So, I'm wondering, in the quoted price range do you have a favorite? And if you've used all 3 brands, what is your favorite? There are no doubt other brands out there, it's not a subject I keep up with. I'd be interested to hear about those as well. Now, why can no one bring a quality twin paddle to market in the $100-$120 range? After all, they are just a glorified switch.
