I have to admit that I don't have redundancy in this matter. Mark me down for a 
whole bunch of demerits. I made my first paddle for a homebrew TO keyer out of 
wood with TWO strips of aluminum because it felt and played better. There was 
no iambic at that time (that I knew of). Maybe a fat paddle is what I need.  I 
never ever heard anyone complain when I called them in a contest. Straight keys 
for SSCW, anyone?

I guess what we should all be railing about is what the best keyboard is for 
doing RTTY, huh?
