Welcome. This is my line of high end iambic & single lever paddles and keys. They include ball bearing movement, magnetic lever arm return,solid silver contact points, and quick "adjust on the fly" contact and magnet screws. Along with short lightweight aluminum lever arms and the correct geometry, these paddles offer an excellent and responsive feel, making QRQ (or QRS and anything in between) operation effortless.      All ZN products are MADE IN THE USA solely by Tony Baleno, n3zn.

       The ZN-HKIII straight key uses 6 ball bearings, spring for return, stainless steel screws, and solid silver contact points.

    The ZN-9RZ is now available in 15 different color combinations. (These color combinations only apply to the ZN-9RZ. All other paddles are available as specified in either Black or IRONMAN V finish.)

   I have had numerous inquiries about key covers over the years. Gifts4Hams makes an excellent key cover for the ZN series of paddles and keys..........................................Tony Baleno, n3zn                                                                                                                             

   I have had a few requests for custom fingerpieces. At the present time, I am not aware of anyone making them.
