After working with Vibroplex paddles (2) for 35 years, on which i made many modifications to upgrade them for QRQ. I relocated the springs on one halfway to the pivots for smoothness. Then I had to install bypass wires because conductivity originally passed thru the springs (Not a good idea with very low tension) and put 4 gold contacts. It worked better on QRQ but I was not completely satisfied.
Then I removed the 2 springs on a second one and installed 2 brackets with magnets.
This one was far better and could work up to 60 WPM. But I could not retain the near zero on the pivots and had to readjust often to keep it sharp.It was very smooth whith fine pivot setting but the locking screw on the thread is not the best idea.
Tired to work on the Vibroplex to keep QRQ without paddle errors, I ordered a BEGALI Signature with gold contacts. First I could not get familiar with the finger pieces, so I installed the 2 Vibroplex red fingers and that was all I needed to work QRQ.
Now I cannot attribuate the errors on the paddles because the speed limit is way over most anything I worked with.
