Unfortunate that most threads with Ducky here are just bash threads... I'd never seen that model before.

This thread is relevant to my interests.


I see why so many people are asking for Decks. Didnt understand why until now.

And what about PBT spacebars ? No one does PBT spacebars ? That's quite a shame, because its the key that shines the most i believe ....

It's also the key that warps the most readily when made with PBT, as seen in lots of people's photos. My four PBT spacebars all seem okay though!

He wasn't very specific but it damn near sounds like he bought molds.  I was more expecting him to source blank caps but given the range of colors he's offering I'm at a loss to know for certain.

That IS interesting. I wonder if it is really cheaper to make his own, unless of course he is expecting to move lots of keysets.

I personally really enjoy my ducky =), it works great and even though people love to hate on the stabilizers I don't have any problems with them; the keys with the stabilizers all actuate with the same force as other keys and work fine. Mine was a ducky tiger edition with engraved PBTs which were pretty sexy and I do recommend them. If you want white pbts, mechanicalkeyboards.com is having a nice deal where if you buy any keyboard from them you have a chance to win a Ducky year of the rabbit keyboard, which is all white and looks like this: http://forums.vr-zone.com/hydra-distribution-virtual-service-center/1639684-ducky-year-the-rabbit-full-snow-white-keyboard-limited-edition.html
also sexy as hell.
