      The way I look at the strip issue is this. I have hundreds of dollars
      invested in my keys; a bug, straight keys and paddles. For me
      spending $5.00 on a contact strip from Vibroplex is worth it. No
      second guessing.

        Vibroplex's warning is for those dingle-brain people who take files to
