    I have a little extra weight on my bug, factory weight in pic on left side for compairsion. I have it set around 17 rag chew, paddle I use around 19 for rag chew. Bug way more fun to use to me, rag chew is all I do. 73 Rich

    18 to 25 WPM for rag chews, but I am very happy to go a lot slower or faster.

    I am pretty comfortable over a wide range of speeds. All I work anymore is CW, and one has be adaptive to the environment if they want to make contacts.

    Now that the QRN season in the upper latitudes is starting to wane, I am ready for the nice long relaxing rag chews.
