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 soley by Tony Baleno, n3zn.

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


   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.
