Seems like mf68 layout is all the rage now.

I'm not gonna rag too hard on you already having a GB date, since it's ICing extras and whatnot. Not to mention you are a company.

Design looks solid, interesting that you use poron squares around the screws instead of strips. I'm not too good with exploded views, but it looks like it screws into the top case...? Interested to see how it plays out. Like gasket-burger fusion almost.

IKKI68 revived the 68 key layout.

Or is it just Velocifire jumping on the hype train yet again?

True, 68 is a nice layout, we like it too, but we think it's a good thing to provide more choices to the community and do our best to bring out the most we can do.

AFAIK IKKI68 was top-mount therefore I would call it more of an upgrade with gaskets than a clone, and for that I am very interested.

Funny that you don't shout clone on all same looking TKL boards which this layout is very much based on.

Hot-swap version does not support ISO, will consider solder PCB with ISO support. Thanks.

No RGB, but may have real gold plated brass weight. Let's see how the samples come out in days.
