    Yeah right now beige Cherry doubleshots with 1.25 modifier command a hefty premium, but that could change at any time now as soon as new production of those key become widely available again.

    Lobster keyboard is super rare, maybe even one of a kind with that super cool sticker :lol:

    Does anyone have a cherry ISO enter that they don't want anymore?

    edit: In a similar vain does anyone have a black sp universal spacebar with the 6 stems?

    Guys, I was wondering - did you ever heard of low profile key caps?
    Most of the key caps are pretty "tall", I thought why not have a low profiles.
    I used Logitech low profile keyboard for like 10 years and few months ago I switched to CM Storm Rapid (which I LOVE) and have to say this change was a bit strange - couldn't get use to those high key caps.
    Are those available anywhere?

    Another update on the SP Grab Bags group buy - the package has cleared customs and has been "received and processed" as of today. I'll phone the depot later today to see where the parcel is at and if I can go and collect it on the fly. It'll be a 1 hour round trip but well worth it lol. If not today, I would certainly expect it to be ready tomorrow.

    It is not my intention to start a fight but, at the risk of receiving a grilling, I shall don my flameproof all-over body condom...

    Why are Topre based boards classed as mechanical? Aren't the switches just another (albeit improved) version of the rubber domed jobs found in standard boards?

    They aren't classed as mechanical in my mid but they get lumped in with MX / BS / Alps boards all the time.

    They're technically different, but the ethos of a Topre board is the same (possibly, you could say, even fancier) as the true mech boards they get lumped in with. Would you really say it has more in common with a horrid rubber-dome board?

    I would define them as Topre boards :p They are the most thought out execution of a keyboard switch, they aren't as popular mainly because of price but also because you cannot put custom caps on them.

    If anyone gets any ISO modifiers that could be used on a winkeyless 1800, and doesn't need them, please let me know
