This is my all time flawed but also all time lovable board. This is the WASD Code keyboard. It was my very first mech and came with MX blues. I loved this thing and thought it was the absolute shit, that is until I discovered other switches
Honestly, if I had just stopped there, I would have kept on typing in blissful ignorance thinking my full sized plastic keyboard with MX blues was the only and last keyboard I would ever need. BUT, it didn’t go that way. Oh no, it did not go that way. After spending 3 months binging every keyboard video that was ever made, I emerged out of my cave and began desoldering this puppy. I made some zealiostotles and put them in but… I wrecked my PCB. A few YouTube tutorials and some switch bridges later and I had fixed it only to find that 62g springs were not enough to make the switches work and half my keys didn’t return. I swapped in 67s but it’s to heavy for clickys and feels no bueno.
I still get it out once in a while but it, (and honestly every board since) somehow feels not quite as good as the feeling I had the first time I typed on her stock. In another universe, there is a man happily typing away on a plastic rig filled with rattly AF mx blues. In a way, I envy that man and his goddamned blissful ignorance. Curse you, you young dumb sonovabitch.
Flawed? Yes. Lovable? It feels the same as my first real high school crush.
But, its story is not over. I’m for sure going to get some phoenix switches in it that will work fine with 62g springs and get one of those badass metal cases on it. She will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine.
P.S. Hey, at least I was kicking ass with GMKs on my first board right?
