Maybe you mean because of LEDS but POM isn't shiny AFAIK. It's got a strange, almost waxy look to it.
Well I only have two POM sets and only really used one.  They're both very shiny from day one but the feeling is a lot better than shined ABS caps.

All these people begging for cherry profile, lmao. I see some things never change around here.
I long for the day when I find a beamspring. (At a not insane price)

I actually prefer OEM for this because it means I can use them with topre without o-rings.

How do you figure? Topre keys are effectively OEM profile, and I definitely needed rings on mine.

I'm not following. You need O-Rings on your stock topre keycaps? The shorter cherry profile keys impact the slider housings on my novatouch, but the taller top/bottom rows are fine as is. OEM is taller on all rows so they should clear fine?

Edit: Are you talking about silencing rings? That's a completely different issue than what I'm talking about.

Very interested! Would love to see solid black as an option in the future if not possible in the first run. Cherry profile would be awesome and please please please include a 7u spacebar  ^-^

Hello! This is CognacWine from Escape Keyboards. Thanks for letting us know your concern. As a long time lurker I thought I really should register and start answering some questions!


Did you fix the spacebar?

6.25 OEM spacing on the original sets is slightly off and will not work on cherry stabilizers.

Other than that, the originals also yellow quite easily, even my blue set.

You are 100% correct on both issues! 
We are well aware of the OG OEM spacebar problem as demonstrated here https://imgur.com/6EC19ms this is with a GMMK TKL with cloned cherry stabs i believe. You can see that since the stems are not fully aligned when you depress the key full it sort of pushes the stab stems outwards causing a jam between the housing and the stem of the stabs.

I believed that the problem is resolved with our new batchhttps://imgur.com/lY6cgG9 as demonstrated with the same keyboard.

We have asked about the possibility of adding more UV stabilizers into the plastic but have not gotten a definitive reply.
We've also done some testing on the effect of UV on the keys, I'll post a photo between the different of a UV exposed key, a chemically exposed key and a normal key when i get some better lighting this week.

I'm not sure if we can do anything more regarding on UV exposure as I suspect that that is tied to how the pellets are made and not something that you can just add into the injection process.

great, thanks for the response

Sorry for the late reply but here is the UV test result.

After a 2.5 week direct UV exposure under the Queensland sun. The Matcha spacebar has shown noticeable fading. The 1u Matcha key has not seen UV.

The white ones above are the OG POM Jelly Whites. 1u key has seen more than half a decade of use and the space bar did not see any usage at all due to bad stem alignment.

As you can see usage does not seem to affect the material much but UV exposure will definitely deteriorate the pigments.

Hey, just a heads up, you hyperlinked an imgur/undefined url and the link doesn't go anywhere when you click on it.
