    I paid $6 shipped to the house for this paddle on ebay, its gone up in price. Its definitely does not have the feel of your nice paddles but does a very good job for what it is. Ive used it successfully out in the field straight key and iambic mode. The only problem is that it comes in kit form with no instructions and you have to rely on the pictures. I also did not use the hook up wire supplied with the kit.

    Looks like a rough 3D print job but if it works ...

    Hey - price of a Starbucks latte and a muffin - with a 3 month wait at the "pickup counter" :D:D

    I'm 'heavy handed' enough that it's probably not heavy enough so I don't have to chase it.

    Me too - but for ten bucks, I figure I'll come up with something - if it even has usable "action" in the first place

    just fun to try it out - when it gets here in 2020 :D

    Cheaper than a pack of smokes, and far less likely to kill you. It’s worth a shot, I reckon. :D

    Forgot to mention. I order the small version, I hold it in my left hand and send with the right. Yes, I feel it is a 3 d print job.

    In related news, I just now saw American Morse has a new micro-paddle. It just costs a little bit more that the one above...but it looks like a nice alternative to the Palm Pico Paddle that I sadly waited too long to order.

    At $150 Im sure it's not even close. I would like to see the inside to see if it is close to the plastic one.
