In order to make special inner rim design into reality, it need some physical support. Finally, we decide to use 4mm Plate to support inner rim.

If 4mm plate is only one choice, we do not think soldering pcb will be a good choice. That's why hot pluggable pcb is default option during IC.

I like the light above the arrow cluster and the overall design.
Hotswap on a TKL is wecome as well.

Not too excited about the mounting system, if the goal is to allow for a low profile build I would expect most customs buyers have no interest in that.

Dang this thing looks killer. Hopefully will be able to get one since I missed out on the Cross 70. I'm ok with the bottom design as long as we can get some PVD Brass for the lettering.

Thanks for your interest.

As explained above, we would like to provide more options for players. But according to current design, we think hot swap pcb is the best choice with 4mm plate in order to get unique inner rim design for this TKL  :)

Absolutely love the top design - the accent colors around the keys look incredible.  Been waiting for a really solid TKL for a while so this has my attention.

That said, the bottom design really turns me off.  Not that I look at the bottoms of my boards often, but this really has me on the fence and I'll end up having to go with my gut in the end, depending on color choices.

Yes, 'accent colors around the keys' is unique in my design. I spend a lot of time for this design to make in reality. Thanks for your enjoying.

Since 'win' blocker is connected with inner rim, you will feel that is not same as other WKL keyboard. Same color for keyboard and plate (inner rim) will make it better. Leave more choice for players  :))
