Got mine today, great deal!  Not sure I like them, but better than the hodgepodge I had on here before.  Sorry for the poor quality pic...

Also... just ordered clear caps for all the grey keys.  (May only use them on the letters though... bad habit of looking for symbols sometimes.)

I got these keycaps last night but am experiencing a weird problem with them. The Costar stabilizer inserts from my Quickfire Rapid fit so loosely into the stems that they fall out. As a result the long keys are very wobbly, especially the right shift. These are my first non-Esc keys from Signature Plastics, is this how they always make them?

Make a shim out of paper or a piece of plastic bag. Works like a charm.

I don't do the paper shim thing... I drop a dab of my kids school glue in each stem and set it.  I've been doing this for a long time.  It's just enough to hold, but not enough contact space to prevent you from somewhat easily pulling it out.  I've removed/re-glued several times, no problems.

I just end up buying spare stabilizers and attaching them to all my sets... the new ones seem to attach more secure and I dont have to work about swapping in the future.

Thanks, that did the trick. Can't believe I didn't think of that. :-[

I used home hot melt glue to fit the stabilizer inserts.. They look good with white on black cherry keycaps :D

I'm assuming it also includes all the F keys, and they just didn't show them for space issues in the photo?

Considering picking these up...anyone else have some nice installed shots they wanna share :p

No, what you see in the picture is the entire set.

Only the base kit has the other F keys and they are white.

The set direct from SP actually has no F keys.

With the loose stabilizer stems, I wrap mine with Teflon tape. It takes five minutes and results in a perfect fit.
