      John,
      I would venture a guess that far more hams regret selling a key than are glad they got rid of it. I hear it all the time. I suggest giving it time and don't be so impatient. Its a nice key so you will always be able to unload it. However, regretting your act and acquiring another might be quite a different story.

      If you can, work with N1EA...it could be well worth your while.

      Without divulging details, I will say there was once a time when I ALMOST refused to listen to David on a CW matter.......Boy am I glad I found it within my ego to listen. It changed my CW life .... for the good!

      Yes, at first it feels sloppy, but so you realize it is much more relaxing, the most difficult part is dashes, so let your speed improve slowly, do not hurry

        I can still at 35 wpm but 45 is too difficul my dashes are still 35 wpm dashes.  So I need dash practice above 35 wpm.

        Yes I have read the article on adjusting bugs along with speaking to others and it has helped.

        After using dual paddles for the past 35 years I find it very difficult not to use my fingers however using the wrist does allow me to strike the paddle more solidly. It will take more time since this motion feels so unorthodox and a feeling of less control of the finger pieces.
