      Hi All,
      Well my Begali Intrepid bug has arrived direct
      from Italy,very well packed and obviously shipped
      with care by DPD Couriers.
      The first thing that struck
      me on unpacking the key was the weight (around 6lbs)
      and solid construction. It's beautifully finished and
      comes with a booklet describing the adjustment process.
      The base is cast iron and finished in a dark grey while
      the upper parts are gold plated with the levers in silver.
      This key,once on the desk,is certainly not going to move
      about. I've tried to move it with a very heavy keying fist
      and it won't budge! There are 8 points of adjustment and
      magnets are used for dot spacing and damping.The key can
      be set for a very light action and with its solid feel,it
      tends to give me an overall "in control" feeling.Once on
      the desk and hooked up to the radio,I was surprised at
      the complete silence of the pendulum,the only sound is
      the making of the dash contacts with a light "click".
      There are two speed weights and they can be set from
      around 16/17wpm up to 40wpm.A nice 20wpm can be achieved
      with one weight at either end of the pendulum. All
      adjustments are made with fine threaded and spring loaded
      screws (no lock nuts).
      I've found the key very comfortable
      to use and the weight and solid construction all adds to
      the overall enjoyment. I'ts definately a winner for me.
      At the price of 455euros,this translated to £420 and,for
      many of us is a considered purchase (I sold 2 bugs to part
      finance it). The key is No.16 so they're not selling in
      vast quantities but I'm happy I got mine.
