Bencher Hex Iambic Paddles are a classic Bencher design - attractive to the eye and a perfect match for the fingers of the proficient CW operator. Fully iambic, this innovative design utilizes magnets for tensioning and, unlike some rather expensive European designs, allows separate individual tensioning adjustments for dot and dash contacts. If you are a ham that learned CW using a "bug," then you know that it was necessary to be fairly physical with the bug for good CW. But old habits are hard to break. Many operators still tend to slap their paddle around.
These are paddles that will take it and come back for more. They're certainly one of the heaviest paddles available, weighing in at well over 3 lbs., and the components throughout are tough, sturdy, and built to last. They're paddles that you won't be chasing around the operating position. But does this sturdiness mean that the operator must give up the feather-light responsiveness and tactile feedback that Bencher paddles are justly famous for? Not at all! The Hex Paddles are truly a magical combination of rugged construction and a deft, flawless touch. Solid silver contact points with gold plating ensure perfect closure. Whether you are just learning CW or are at the top of your form, these are the paddles that will take you to the next level.
