A few months ago, I wrote a "post" asking for an advise about a good CW Key  (As a Newbie on CW )

Finally, after reading many wonderful, high technical knowledge, years of experience, I took a decision I would like to share with all you today

It wouldn't be possible by myself, and that's why I want to thanks to all Ham Amateurs whom shares their own experience in this community everyday.

I would like to thanks specially to:

Duane AC5AA,  Andrew K2OO, Kevin K4VD, Tom K1FR, Mark WS7M, Steve W6SDM, Monk K5HP, Lee W9OY, Stan VA7NF, Charles K5UA..... as well as  KF4HR,  W7NGA, Salvador EA4GLI - 8P9EH  and of course to Howard KY6LA 

To all you my best wishes you have a wonderful and peaceful holly-day season, Best Christmas!!! and a very good 2017 year

George, YV5WZ / PY3ZZZ

Well done my friend! Love my Begali keys and I'm sure you will too. Not often art can be used daily in your chosen hobby for many years to come.

You're very welcome.  That is a beautiful key. 

I learned code over 50 years ago as a novice.  I am surprised and grateful that the art of CW is still around.  At the time I started learning, the most advanced keying system around was a Vibroplex paddle and Hallicrafters  vacuum tube/mercury relay keyer.  I'm glad to see that not only has CW survived, the state of the art in keying instruments has advanced as well.

I look forward to working you on CW some day.  73.  Steve

Now that's a nice looking key.  I too use a single lever key similar to my old vibroplex.
Excellent choice George, Best 73'

You certainly picked what I believe to be the very best available.  I have a trio of Begali Sculpture keys: the Sculpture Paddle (with offset touch-pieces), the Mono and the Arrow Straight key.
No excuse not to bash the key now!
