...sweet machine !!! Time owned: 0 to 3 months
...sweet machine (CT73 Chrome) !...the first thing I noticed was the key was well packed and the shipping box WAS NOT "dog earred"...it arrived in "fresh condition"...that was good...
...unpacked the CT73, again the internal packing was substantial...prior to installing on the radio, I did a few "clicks and clacks"...the 73 had a very precise feel, very smooth bearing tension and a nice sounding "clicks"...some paddles have "clicks" and some "clacks"...the 73 was a delicate "click"...me like !
...the 73 also had the fine thread adjustment screws and a nice chrome finish...
...plugged the 73 into the radio, and as expected the code generated was as perfect as I can send...in fact, the settings from the manufacturer were to my preference (contact spacing was about the width of a single sheet of paper and the magnetic return was just right)
...all in all, the 73 feels like a finely machined product as opposed to a mass manufactured device...the difference of feel is suttle, but the 73 feels "machined"...
...at the current price point (approx. $150 US) I rate the CT73 as a great value and a true "top shelf" product...me LIKE !!!!
CT 73 MX
