Over the years, I have purchased many N3ZN keys, a few for myself, and many for gifts to special friends. Not only do they perform flawlessly, they are also precision machines, meticulously built, easy to adjust, and works of art. The adjustments stay put, too. Last Friday, I received a ZN-QRP, unplugged the heavier ZN, and connected the ZN-QRP to the K3. Even though this the smallest of Tony's keys so far, it stays put on the desk, and is just as delightful to operate as the larger ones. There is nothing QRP about this beautiful key. I am going to leave it connected to the K3, and have already moved the heavier one to the S-Line transmitter. Between the unsurpassed quality and excellent customer service, I recommend N3ZN keys, and am looking forward to seeing his upcoming straight key.
If CW is the key to ham radio, N3ZN keys are master keys! A pure joy to use...........
I have, and have owned a lot of hi-end paddles, I wanted a first class usa made key, and I got it, I have the Fratini,Schurr,Macpaddle,Mercury,Jones and this key does not take the back seat to any of them, the 5 rubber feet, the weight and selection of finger width , selection o finger pieces, I got it opened it , the finger pieces were broke from the shipping, I called Tony , in about 3 days had new finger pieces,no charge, He is great to work with if you want a first class key,it is worth 2 times as much as it cost, Get him to make you a new ZN-5 you wont be disappointed, NU5X
Hi Tony ,
de Gilbert LX1CW
My key has arrived today! It is in good condition and it sends exactly
what my fingers want. I love it!
Tracking with USPS shows that shipping from the US was quite fast but
the key was held at customs for a long time :-(
Thank you for this enjoyable piece of art!
Dear Tony ,
I am very pleased to inform you that the 2 ordered items have been delivered to my

wonderful delicate workmanship.
I am appreciating a lot that you and your company shall be existing in the world.
Thank you again, Tony.

George ( M6 CFJ ) _____________________________________________________________ Dear Tony,
I unpacked the ZNHKC #004 on Christmas Day, and it was in perfect condition. I have adjusted it to my liking and it has a great feel. Thanks much for your continued interest.
You may not recall that I have one of your original vertical paddle keys: ZN3A #031. It is absolutely fantastic! It sits like a rock and has a great smooth touch as I talk to my CW friends. It is the best.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Just want to comment on my ZN5H. The stamped number on bottom says "062". This has been a FABULOUS key for me. Its excellent operation has motivated me to get back into CW in a big way after 55 plus years in ham radio.
Thanks for the beautiful workmanship. This key is worth every dollar.

I have now had several QSO's with the paddle.
I am very very happy with the ZN-SLjr.
The single paddle design is exactly what I was looking for.
It is effortless to use and the size and weight ratio are perfect.
Everything about it, the design, the materials, your construction
exceeded my expectations.
I have been a ham for 45 years and always enjoyed CW and this
remarkable instrument takes it to a whole new level for me.
Thanks 73 Bruce K8LGY
Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with my ZN-5. It’s feel, looks and workmanship are superb.

Tony, what else can I say? Quality workmanship, must be smooth action because I can't see anything moving on the ZN-SL, and it makes my fist better than it has ever been. I guess I gotta also give you some credit along with a little help from propagation for working an A71, an SV9, and a host of ZL's, JA's, and VK's the first time I put it on the air since they pulled me out of the pile-ups. I put all the other keys away in storage. Tnx es 73 de WA4KSO ____________________________________________________Just a short follow-up on my new ZN-9A key.

GA Tony. This is just to let you know I have just opened the best packaging I have seen since 1926: Inside I found the best morse key I have ever seen and handled since 1926. Yes, 1926.
Many thanks for the safe delivery, even if it appeared to come long path! vy 73 de Eric GM4FQE.
