RAMA PBT Heavy Industry set
« on: Wed, 30 October 2019, 04:44:16 »
I would like to buy this set and was wondering how does it feel etc.
Anyone has this set?
What can you say about it? Does it feel awesome? How does it sound?

This is my first ePBT set and I find the quality to be fair for the price.
No ragerts.

There are minor imperfections (some sprue marks and hairline scrapes around the sides) when inspecting them closely but none of these has bothered me when I have it on the board.
FWIW I'm can't say that I'm picky with keysets because I have not had the chance to compare this with any GMK set yet.

The bolder fonts suprised me and I am liking it more than I thought I would.
IMO it goes very well with polycarbonate Think 6.5.
Paired it with Gateron Milky Yellow (unlubed) on the Think 6.5 and I am really liking the sound and feel of this combo.
After breaking the keys and lubing them, I can only imagine sound will get better.

Oooh, lovely photos, thank you.
Sounds good then, I also like that font. Specially on mods, looking nice and fresh:)
For this price I also think that you can't go wrong, nice font, colors as well.
I believe that white isn't really white, it looks like some kind of cream-ish?

They are actually white. Those earlier photos were taken with a phone.
It was the warmer white balance and the not-so-white curtains diffusing the light that makes it appear like a light cream.

These photos are more accurate. Taken outdoors (overcast sky):

This is close to what my eyes see.

This one is slightly underexposed.

Aaah, ok, cool, I see.
So they look like Topre Realforce caps then. This is actually great, as when I'm gonna mod my future Realforce R2 with mx caps, these would be a nice Topre-like caps, plus the yellow accent is really pretty addition.

Can I ask you a favoure? Would you be able to take some photos of those caps up close?
I would like to see the actual stem and whole botom fot he cap - for example enter cap and one of the letters.

What is the profile of this set? Doesn't look uniform, that's for sure.

I found some isssue with GMK cap son Novatouch or Realforce keyboard modded with NT sliders - apparently enter cap is pretty low and stem length is so short that this cap hits the switch housing making weird noise.
I woul dliek to see if these have same stem length...
