Key Features
The Protag, for short, is mounted with a leaf spring semi-proprietary grommet system that is customizable via varying gasket hardness. This allows for a beautiful sound profile right out of the box with the ability to perfectly tailor it to your typing preference. We're not kidding, this thing sounds absolutely amazing.

* Interchangeable 'Keyframe' with only 4 screws that serves as an accent piece for tons of color combinations and different layouts.
* Endless customization with our in-house Cerakote offerings
* RGB Underglow
* Hidden Case Screws
* Hidden Daughterboard routing channel
* Hefty weight for a premium feel
Endless possibilities. Infinite value.


With a three dimensional "Keyframe", the possibilities are virtually endless. Between exchanging the 'Keyframe' for different layouts, different material options, as well as in-house Cerakote colors; there is no limit to the level of personalization.

The Protagonist will start at $349 (brass weight) subject to change.

Very excited for the Protag.

Rhienfo:
idk how I feel about this. Bezels are way to big which makes this look not great to look at. You can do that blocky look and have it look well (brutal 60 v2 does it pretty well I feel) but this is a bit much. Also not a big fan of the weight and how it affects the sides of the board, but that's probably more of a preference thing anyway.

Also am I being clueless or are there no images of the plate, cause if they're aren't can you please show some pictures, it's funny if you are advertising a more unique mounting style and just not showing it (also explosion diagram if there isn't would be nice as well)

GLWIC though

NSMN:
I like the design but some information is missing
