Hi Brent...

I use a the Palm Mini Paddle for both portable and at home.

It is very light weight and virtually indestructable, especially when in the closed position. The action is supurb!

At home, I have a heavy copper base it snaps on. When portable I prefer to hold it in my left hand, operating the paddles with my right.

You can order magnets with it, which will allow it to stick to your rig. A very good setup.

Also, there is a very small electronic keyer (option) that fits on the back of it.

I think you should check this one out.
