Thank you! What’s even weirder is that the GMK set I got from Drop (Mitolet) has a different texture on all of the R2 1U keys as well. I wonder if the GMK factory has a different production line / set of machines that they use for Drop specifically.
I dont think so, afaik metaverse r2, gmk zhuyin also had that issue. Those are the sets I own with the same issue so I think it is a gmk issue. Honestly dissapointing and no idea why this was not caught by qc on their end.
Until you said that the upper row of letters was a little rough, I didn’t notice. I completely agree with the rest. I liked them. I have mt3 abs, in mt3 pbt, as well as garbage with aliexpress SA, oem, cherry.
I like all MT3s. I have two Claudia. change as wallpaper on the desktop. But the sound of the abs is better, the space button is pleasant to the touch. And the PBT has a very rough coating, the buttons feel better with touch typing.
GMK may be on the upswing, as it has been producing new molds.
You mention the ‘next set,’ and I think the next big one is Modern Dolch R2.
GMK says they are using the new molds for Modern Dolch R2, and may even present photos of the new molds in use with MoDo R2. Makes sense, as you’d want to get your ducks in a row before producing what may be the largest GB.
