Well, I picked one up. Feel stupid paying so much for it. I got into Topre too late to have a chance at a Novatouch. Seems like all the after market slider options are less than ideal.
I’ve only typed on it a little. (Jury duty this week). It seems just as solid as my R2 PFU edition. Seems like there is less flex in the case and that it’s more solid than either of my 87Us. (Although, of course, way way way less substantial in every way to the Norbaforce on my daily driver )
Perhaps my favorite thing about Topre is the soft landing. (I always bottom out and have a touch of arthritis). The RGB R2 feels a little harsher on the bottom out to my fingers. Seems harsher than the R2 PFU.
I’ve got yet another R2 with all 30g weight on the way to LA from Japan. Planning to dome swap the RGB to all 30g. I’ll probably sell the PFU edition and and the remaining post-dome-swap parts.
Then, I’ll just start praying for Norbauer to make a case for the R2s!
