POKER Interest Check
« on: Tue, 04 December 2012, 10:35:33 »
Vortex is making ONE LAST batch of POKERs. 

They will not be making any with Brown switches due to the shortage, but Black, Blue, and Red MX are available. 

Please let me know if you're interested in a KBT POKER.

Price should be between $88 and $94 depending on the switch type.  Domestic shipping, as always, is $9 flat.  International ranges from $32 - $55 depending on the part of the wolrd.  (Canada, UK, Australia <-- least to greatest)

Also, the interest checks for us are more about 'Determining market demand'.  I just need to gauge what demand is like before I put the order in with Vortex - specifically for which switch types.  You won't be held to it if you say you want one on this thread, and change your mind later :)

Thanks for everyone's input!

If they offered either grey I would be all over one. But for now, three pokers is enough hah.

Thats my problem also. I have a bunch of MX clears that I'm saving to either do the GH60 or ergoDox but strait up buying a poker at this price is sort of tempting. If they offered a poker with an unusual switch I'd be all over it.

Switch swap on a Poker is super easy.

I might be interested but I was hesitant to order a Vortex keyboard because the company has zero internet presence and the MechKeyboard's return policy makes me cringe a bit.

If I can be allayed of this hesitancy I would likely order a Poker.

OK great. Thanks for everyone's input!

We'll be sure to stock up on blues as much as possible. Probably get 15-20 reds and blacks.

Once again, this isn't a "group buy". Just basic 'market research' so we don't under / over buy.

Thanks again!
