Exclusive NOS Alps Switches & Plates
Bear Cables (ships worldwide, except UK) will be offering new-old-stock (NOS) Alps SKCM White and forged carbon fiber plates.

SKCM White are a medium-weight, clicky switch that can be made linear by simply removing the click leaf, if desired. Unfortunately, quantities of SKCM White are limited, and will be sold FCFS.
Switch quantities offered are 70x ($99.99), 90x ($124.99), and 110x ($149.99).

Plates offered will all be approximately 1.1mm thick and made of forged carbon fiber.
Four designs will be offered - 60% (gummy o-ring & tray mount), Jane V1, Jane V2, and Jane V2 CE, priced at $29.99 for the 60% and $39.99 for the TKL plates.
These four designs will be compatible with dozens of different boards. Plate files will be released sometime after GB.

Updates

11/03/2022
Just a small update for the few folks that got ISO kits: the legend on ISO enter will be placed towards the top of the keycap, as it is on other DCS sets, not in the center like our renders show it

I'm hoping this makes it. I have an upcoming Frog TKL with Alps that this set would look great on.  :thumb:

I have to wait until the last day to get into the group buy, though.
