Looks like a very solid TKL to me. I still love my OG KBD8X & this looks like it keeps all the good from OG then adds in some real improvements at a damn good price!

Thank you for hot-swap ISO support. Depending on cost I am definitely in for one.

ai03 said on his discord that this was not made by him, makes sense since he works for Cannonkeys now

Will this be compatible with regular unified daughterboards and universal pcb's? The weight looks like it has mounting location for a unified daughterboard at least.

Hey there, yes it's compatible with regular unified daughterboards and universal PCBs in the market. We have not tested other brand's pcbs, however, a f12 layout with a north facing spacebar, should be a possible compatible pcb

i heard you added a force break kit with every keyboard now. i Assume that's after review feedback? On your website i don't see the 1,6mm hotswap pcb as an option instead of the default 1.2mm hotswap pcb...
Hoping to see that as a kit option not only as an extra because that would mean i will have to buy 3 pcb's that's a waist..

Strange that there are no EU vendors (yet) that have announced their participation....I don't look forward to the 31% extra in customs fees (+- $95)  i would have to pay over the total.
That's 50% of an extra board i could have bought  :eek: ... That's the main reason is stopped buying from Drop.. Dear KBD time to get moving and get a warehouse in the EU...
Look at Poland and other countries.. Or just offer to pay eu vat in your store saving customs fees and the hassle.. Or just help folks in the EU..

Thanks for the info. That sucks i thought Keygem had put all the boards on "Sold Out" just as a place holder and was planing to offer them when the pre-order time closes on the KBD site.
Well will see what happens..
