There is a lot of interest in what straight key is of good quality for
reasonable price. I see a lot of guys mention the j-38. Only bummer
is you have to find one, then get gouged on an item that was
originally pretty cheap. On the other side of the coin, I see guys
mention keys that cost in the hundreds of dollars. A bit rediculous,
in my opinion. 

For my money, the Nye Master key is the best I've seen for the 
money. I think it's about 60 bucks, and is solid as a rock on the 
table due to it's heavy base. It also uses contacts that are enclosed
in the base. AND, it's currently in production.

There's a picture of one on my ham page, url at the bottom. 

Do a search on your favorite search engine on Nye Viking, and
you'll come across several places where they are available.
