I also have been using an old, by now rather beat-up, Brown Bros. paddle 
for years.  I love it.  It "takes a beating and keeps on bleating." :-)

Seriously, it has withstood many head-first dives off the table onto 
concrete pavement during portable operations and didn't even show signs of 
being damaged.  I have the model with an iambic paddle and a straight key 
on one base.  I don't have to go digging for the straight key on SKN that
