The Heavy-6 (now resurrected in polycarbonate)

I finally got around to taking proper photos of the Royal Wrinkle and Enigma Gray finishes on this design.

More of them on the product page.

As of the moment, I believe I have at least a few of the Enigma Gray in stock.

Almost 3 months after receiving my Monolith, I am just in love with it as the day I got it. No other keyboard even interests me anymore, they are mild curiosities at best. Nothing even comes close to this beauty. This is everything I wanted in a board, it is my endgame, and I don’t see it being bested any time soon!

I took the Monolith to the Cleveland Meetup and wrote on the card, “Feel free to pick this up”.

That was fun to watch.

Is this board ever going to be restocked? Such as for the currently out of stock colors (aerospace/tactical)? If not, will there be a second round?

Given the limited availability of the underlying keyboard, I don’t have any restock plans, so if you want one, now would be a good time to snag what I have left in stock. :slight_smile:

I see, I’ll have to find the aerospace colorway on the secondhand market, most likely. Your finishes are too nice to recolor.

Did you end up wanting to keep both, dc_in_sf?

If not … I’m interested…

Heavy-6 Monolith with BKE Light domes, lubed Novatouch sliders, stabilizers, and housings, and GMK Metropolis.

This is as close to endgame as it gets for me!

WHAAAAT???

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH. MUST BUY MUST BUY.

You rock, sir. You rock.

Now, the bad thing is, I have a heavy6 already. And I bought the TX 660c case for my other 660c. So… now I will have to own 3 of these babies? Oh boy. let’s see… maybe I can do a dome swap this time.

So, the big Q… when do you think these will be ready to ship? Is it impossible to say? DAMN YOU, COVID-19!

I think it won’t be too bad since the housings don’t require a secondary coating. My estimate it about 6-8 weeks.

How much weight does this version add compared to the regular heavy-6?

With the keyboard installed, it weighs 3.2 pounds, or just around a 1kg–heavier than you would expect for something that’s clear polycarbonate of its size.

Has anyone ever posted the black on black keycap variant with polycarb? I checked the Mark II poly images and didn’t see one. Anyone got a pic? Might go that route.
