Not to be pedantic but that's a 75% keyboard, not a 60%.

Oh, I agree - I was just going by what the ad said, I think ... I can't remember where I saw the 60% now though. 

Has anyone tried Topre-clone keyboards?  The 35g actuation force sounds pretty nice...

Yes it feels better than some topre boards imo and this particular model (and the 87) are really incredible.
For those who prefer a heavy switch, you can swap in a 45, 55, and 65g rubber dome sheet.

I ended up buying a plum 87 and realforce 87 - both 35g from r/mechmarket.

They definitely feel a different, more of a tactile bump on the realforce. I thought 35g would be too light, but it's fantastic to type on!
