HungerMechanic:
Thanks. I have heard that there are issues with lining up replacement domes with the PCB on Niz boards that are worse than with Topre.

Seems like some generic Topre board would be a better candidate for replacement domes. Although I might be okay with stock 30-35 G Topre / Niz anyway.

Maybe I should have just sold my 45 G ABKO, lol, it is a good specimen. I have put replacement keycaps on it, which has diminished the factory stabilizer lube a little during the process. Still think it would be better with 35 G domes.

Mine is 45g, never tried 35g Niz or Topre. \_(ツ)_/

I do think I enjoy the overall typing experience more on my ABKO than my Realforce. There's something eminently satisfying about that boiling water sound.

HungerMechanic:
The sound is very keycap-dependent, I find.

Nothing is as good as the stock keycaps. Cheap, thick PBT is alright, as is ePBT, forget most ABS. But the stock keycaps give that 'boiling water' sound most correctly.
