What did you get in the mail today?

OG Dolch as in actual Dolch Pac caps or the OG Ivan Ivanovich GMK run? Either way nice score & I’m rather jealous of GMK Mint Chocolate! Kick myself for skipping that one every time I see it! Enjoy the new digs man! :sunglasses:

When my SA Laser arrives in a few months I’d be more than happy to send you my GMK Mint Chocolate for just the shipping price. I’ve sworn off anything not DS/S/XA profile ever since I tried my first set and I won’t be using my Mint & Chocolate afterwards.

Dang dude, you’re really that not into it? What do you like about those others? I find cherry and DSS to be the most comfortable to type on, with the lower profile and slight but comfortable sculpt.

I will preface by saying I think GMK sets are beautiful, it is the profile itself that I have come to dislike.

  1. Aesthetically I like cuter rounder things and those profiles fit the bill.
  2. The sculpt of all of those profiles physically feels better and more substantial to my fingers. The amount of material used in most GMK keycaps is okay but compared to the others I can’t stand it.

I blame the deep dive I took into the keyboards for my change in taste. I mostly use blank SA profile keycaps right now while I wait for SA Laser/DSA Magical Girl/SA Berserk 2.0

I feel that. The bigger SA caps definitely have a nice sturdy feel to them. I’ve found that I tend to prefer the feel of cylindrical keycap on the finger and almost exclusively just get GMK sets anymore.

Have you had a chance to try DSS yet? It’s almost like a best of both worlds, the sculpt shape is more like cherry profile, but the tops are spherical like DSA. The caps aren’t as tall as SA and a bit textured like SP DSA (which is definitely polarizing), but I’ve found that I like those a lot.

Wow, thanks! That is a very generous offer & I am definitely interested, but I would be willing to pay you at least something beyond shipping for it. Whenever you get SA Laser in DM me on here & I’m sure we can work something out that gets me the set & puts a few bucks in your pocket! :smiley:

Because I obviously don’t own enough Topre boards, I got an HHKB and some really nice Mitchcapped mods for it. Also stuck on some of the other purple topre resin I had lying around. Used the stock keycaps from an FC660C to give it a bit more contrast.

Got my first Fugthulu today, it’s a Caconym one from the March Marbles raffle! I also managed to grab it at price not too much over retail! Kinda wish I had went for this colorway in the raffle now that I got to see it irl as it is straight beautiful. Although the Rotavirus Menloe I did get is pretty awesome looking as well so I can’t really complain, LOL!

Still waiting on my 180g SPRiT’s for my heavy creams switches. Super jealous.

Bought a doro67 second hand that came in yesterday. Put SA chocolatier on the MCG 112 lubed NK creams and it has been a really enjoyable board so far!

Oof, those are some super heavy springs. Is the board you’re building just for memes? IME with 180g springs they are basically unusable for typing longer than a paragraph, even in linear switches. I had mine in some Gat Clears on a Pok3r, but ended up ripping them back out cause they were just too heavy!

Eventually. I am trying to make sure and convert whatever board I build from this point onward to hotswap so I can have a set of meme switches to play with when I want to try something else.

I really wanted the 200g springs but the 180g were all they had available at the time.
