Castle leather wrist rest
« on: Wed, 26 August 2020, 17:35:22 »
Just got this leather wrist rest and like it a lot! https://castle.market/products/bailey-tenkeyless-leather-wrist-rest-black. I got the 60% size on Amazon, which I am not seeing on their site. (The link above is to the TKL size.) There's a pretty strong leather smell right out of the box, but even after a couple of hours it's lessened quite a bit. It's a lot firmer than some rests I've tried, but still has some give. The stitching seems very solid and well done. There's a metal strip apparently built into the base to help it keep its shape, and the bottom is also quite grippy and not inclined to move around on my desk. I thought the castle logo would be annoying but I find it kind of cool actually. For ~$27, quite a deal.

This looks like a decent wrist rest, will certainly be better than my plastic one that came with my KB. I type a lot while working on writing essays for admission-writer.com/blog/georgetown-essay-prompts so it's important for me to rest my wrists during work.

I have the full size, and unfortunately, the leather is delaminating and flaking apart at the stitching. Castle wouldn't replace it, but gave me 50% off of another. I'm hoping my first one was a fluke, it's the most comfortable rest I've used; a little too firm, which feels great after an hour or two.
