You should try a Baubet delrin. I own a 6 keys, block mounted, 5 parts w slide. Excellent response and price, much better than previously mentioned options. Just to put everything in perspective, I must say that I already play an 8 keyed Watson, the best flute I have ever played.

PD: I´m selling a keyless Seery D flute in delrin, Pratten style ;)

Interesting, I would put the Baubet as one of the worst options mentioned. But obviously, opinions will vary on such things.

Yes, opinions do vary on this—and Loren and I have agreeably disagreed on this in the past. I have a Baubet that was a keeper after going through most of the other "top name" delrins. As with Loren, only one opinion to put into the mix.

Best wishes.

Steve

I will be sadly selling my Paddy Ward Pratten-style delrin, but it won't be for a few months. Because of some tendon issues I'm having, I need one made with some accommodations, and Dave Copely will be doing that for me. So once that comes in (ETA May) and I know it's working for me, the Ward will be available.

Might be too far off for you, but let me know if you're interested.

IMHO you should consider the Ward. They are excellent. For comparison I also have or have had Olwell, Hamilton, and Murray flutes and, while I won't say the delrin Ward is *just* as great, it is comparable. No tuning slide, but that hasn't been an issue for me yet in playing with others. If it's like mine, the flute is very well in tune with A440 and you can still slide the head joint out a bit to adjust if you need to.

Thanks for the input everyone. I decided to go with a delrin Somers Pratten. I played a few a while back that really grabbed so I figured I would give it a shot. Its en route from Brazil as we speak.

Here is a Boosey Eb I made a while back. Hope the Summers flute works out.
