    Definitely not at the build detail level of my Begali Signature but much much better than I expected from a 150€ twin paddle.

    My new Kent TP1-B; It replaces my old BY1 Bencher in my second qth shack!

    Looks great!

    I've been wanting a Kent for a long time now. At one point I was ready to order, but no one had them in stock and would not for up to a month. My instant gratification control was turned up to 10 at the time, so I passed. :p

    One of these days, though.

    It does look nice, and I don't have one.

    Is the spacing between paddles adjustable? If so, how do you do that?

    I'm afraid it's the only thing that isn't adjustable on this key.
    The paddles are firmly fixed to their axles with the bearings as shown in the photos.
