Kinda silly question, but I have a set of Sky Dolch pending. Would this set overlap too much in terms of colorways/themes?  Anyone already planning on getting both?

The color of the mods and alpha are opposite. I prefer this set though :)

Ok... so the Chinese version lists it at 938Y (~$137) and 838Y (~$122) if 500 MOQ is reached. I'm going to assume shipping is extra.

https://www.zfrontier.com/m/1190

Is that also a mistake or is only global/english getting the difference back in zfrontier reward points?


As I know (I'm not a staff of zf), zFrontier China only handle China domestic orders, for the shipping fee and labor cost are more lower than abroad.
As you know, the domestic express fee is only about 20 RMB (about 3 USD), far lower than US and international.

And, why zF China shop and Global shop use different cash back method,I guess they have diffenrent bosses? (I just guess :p)
but, not quiet defferent I think.

I guess you are new to GB in general? You will not see any real keycaps until GMK has finished production and sent it to you, if there is any imperfection you will contact GMK for replacement. None of this is in production yet, so it's impossible to have "real" photos of keycaps now.

The absence of bars is like a zfrontier that stops me from buying this set.

Hi guys! GB is live.
On Zfrontier!
https://en.zfrontier.com/collections/keysets/products/gmk-ocean-dolch


Currrent price at 149, will there is further breakpoints? Also if possible, do update on how many have purchased. Thanks

Edit: I want to add that I thank you for having free international shipping for orders above $100. I am sure many would love this.
Perhaps not. Sorry for bringing wrong info to you. i clarify the truth. IF reaching 500 sets, zfrontier will give the participants zfrotier points.
about the points, you could check them at https://en.zfrontier.com/pages/rewards-program
Free shipping? Is that right? yay
yes ,free shipping to all the world

So no further breakpoint? That's too bad. Reward point system is pretty gimmicky imo. Not interested in that. Might have to give this GB a pass then.

If we refer each other we get $10 off.
Form a replay chain, refer the person below above you :-/

For now you can only buy the base set so it seems.... how much does the add-on set cost? Because the pictures show that the add-on set for other layouts is included in the base set. But then in the description below it sas add-on kit wil deliver support for the FC660M, not the base set. Very confusing.

As is tradition with GMK sets.

That it works well with Skeletor has me tempted.

Kinda silly question, but I have a set of Sky Dolch pending. Would this set overlap too much in terms of colorways/themes?  Anyone already planning on getting both?

This is what you do.  Buy both.  Then swap alphas.  Now you have one full N9 set with TU2 legends and accent mods (effing sweet looking).. and one full CC set with TU2 legends and accent mods (equally nice).

Exactly what I intent to do when I enter this GB. This is a great set on it own, but its ability to be compatible with other sets is awesome :D

I am counting 143 caps (ISO included) on the latest mockup. Am I missing some?

Well, GMK is the manufacturer and they have their own color code. Check it out: https://goo.gl/pQvlG9

Yeah...Really I don't think bar homing keys are THAT important once you got muscle memory and know how to touch type.

If you use programs that require a lot of shortcuts, like autocad, having homing bars is very important.

Nice! In that render, the base color of the F1-F4 and first seven or so numrow keycaps from the Ocean Dolch board look a bit too blueish though.

Nice.. I wish standard dolch used black legends on the cyan keys so that my cyan modifier kit would work better with ocean dolch  ;D  I'd like to use my cyan arrows but it might look out of place.

I need homing marks, even being a fairly decent touch typist. Scoops are good for me and I like them better than bars, but bars are more effective, by being easier to find.

Got my set ordered! 

I actually prefer the black alphas w/ grey modifiers over the classic Dolch, and the blue is just amazing. This will be my first GMK set, so excited!

Hopefully everything will fit properly on the TADA68/SABER that I'm looking to get.  ;D

Anybody have experience, ordering from ZFrontier?

I've heard of PayPal/payment issues from other users, from the Sky Dolch thread.

Maybe those were isolated cases, just want to be reassured before I order.

With three group buys for Dolch sets running at the same time - one more for Germans only - it is very easy to get confused.

Edit: It should be stated that only the German and other set are actually in Dolch original colors, the other two are Dolch-like.

Gotcha.  I didn't use paypal so I can't help there, but I do know zfrontier has been around awhile and is well established in China, as well as with GMK.  I personally wouldn't worry, but with any group buy you need to assume some risk.

They are great, all of them. But they have their own idiosyncrasy that leads to different sets, They are similar and at the same time they are totally different.
