How many keycaps sets do you have and how often do you swap them?

Yeah, I know you like your blue caps:)
Is it MT3 profile that speaks to you that much that you don't want to swap? If so, do you have other MT3 that you also like?
Dont remember actual Dasher, but most MT3 are ABS - how's the texture, did it come off quickly? Are they now shiny? They must be,  if you using them full time:) Do you have some photos of those caps now?
I'm curious cause I only have Serika, which is PBT, so stays rough on top.

One extra set, I changed it about 6 months ago. Previously I had changed one set in the last 5+ years.

I don't feel the need to change my keycaps like my shirts...

It is the combination of MT3 and the blue colorway that speaks to me. I am still a big fan of SA, but I think I kinda like MT3 more. I haven't been swapping because I just haven't gotten tired of these enough to bother. I also have /dev/tty, Susuwatari, WoB, and Extended 2048. I love /dev/tty and have it on a couple of keyboards, but my silver CTRL w/ MT3 Dasher has been my main driver now for over a year and I haven't felt the urge to switch to something else just yet.

I've been typing on these MT3 Dasher keycaps full time and they are not shiny yet. I'm actually rather surprised by that.

Interesting. I thought those ABS MT3s will go shiny pretty quickly, like GMK.

Yeah, I like SA same as you, we are one of those 7bit's GBs lovers back in the days:)
I only have Serika from MT3 and love those on for a while, colors are amazing, but after a while (few months) I feel like I want a change.
Same for SA - I keep on different sets for about 2-4 months, then need a change. Between 7bit's sets and SA Carbon, I bought a new SA set last week, its that good old Filco SA dark brown/cream set - I think I bought last existing new set of those, you can't get ANSI sets of those anymore.

Yeah, I'm generaly surprised that when I ask peeps how often they change their sets, most of the time they don't change them for ages.
then there are loads of people joining all keycaps GBs and buy tousands of sets, so they must change them at some point:)
