In my opinion, Vibroplex makes the best standard iambic paddle, cost vs. quality considered.  It is very well made with chrome plated
parts and has a heavy base with knerled screw type nuts for the electrical connections.  (No soldering wires to lugs on the bottom
side like the Bencher.)   It is slightly larger and much stronger constructed than the Bencher.  Also, it is about  the cost of the
G4ZPY unit.  It is very well suited to people, like myself, who have large hands (paws?).   If you try one, you will not be
disappointed! -  73's -  Sherrill W.   k4own

Me too on the VHS paddle - I sold my Bencher!
