I just did a Sequence build over the weekend, and it’s really nice (typing this using it). The fit and finish is fantastic (purchased the e-white version). The low front height and middle-ground angle make the typing experience quite nice. Aesthetically, I love the top-to-side proportions as well as the roundover on all of the edges – it has a timeless simplicity to it without looking cheap in any way. Overall, I’m very happy with the board.
The main reason I purchased this board was for the ease of swapping builds which the mounting style excels at. I already had this on my Bakeneko60, but this will be its upgraded replacement. This allows me to test out new switches or configurations without much hassle.
It is very comparable to typing on my Bakeneko, and from what I gather, a standard 65% gummy o-ring experience. Being such, it has a softer feel, but it’s not all that bouncy nor flexy (moreso around the edges, but that doesn’t really translate to anything meaningful during use). My configuration is a hotswap PCB with an FR4 plate which is mostly responsible for the feel. Had I gone with a plastic plate, or even sourced a flex cut Bakeneko65 style PCB, it would change things up. If you are looking for a definitively bouncy or flexy experience, the Sequence isn’t your board.
Also, out of the box, these types of boards with no weight to break up the case, have some hollowness to them. It’s easily remedied with some foam or polyfill (I cut out a piece from a microfiber cleaning cloth for my Bakeneko).
One thing to note: Parallel Limited is waiting on the VIA team to merge in their branch, and they haven’t publicly given out the VIA json draft definitions. I think the board is flashed with a QMK hex anyway, but you can easily configure it using the QMK Configurator (GUI). They will provide the VIA hex and layout json when it’s officially in the repo.
