KLE is labeled wrong I think, that left spacebar is 2.75 not 2.25
1us are also labeled 1.5 and 1.25

Usually I wouldn't even bat an eye at 40%s but it has a numpad and arrow keys so I like it  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Looks fun. How does the middle of the plate feel? I imagine something as long as this, mounted just at the corners, might feel a bit unstable in the center?

It’s a bit softer in the middle but the difference is negligible.

Changing the weight so after the heat treatment it gets clear coated so the scuffs don’t come on it.

I hate arrows (except for TKLs) and numpads, but this board is so lit I want it.

This degree and price. That's... Nice.

GLWIC and hopefully GB!

This is the layout I never knew I needed, but will work so nicely on my desk by being much less deep than every other board I currently own and use. Very creative design and looks great too! Any rough ETA on when this will go to GB? Definitely intrigued & interested. 👍

Will have to see with my current projects and new prototypes.

I enjoy the design, and love that weight look. the skyline is beautiful

sadly the "oil slick", "rainbow", or "prismatic", etc. just makes me hate what ever it's placed on. it's just over used imo and doesn't add much other then the metal equivalent of RGB rainbow barf
