Pbt keycaps
« on: Wed, 25 December 2019, 00:38:18 »
Hello GeekHack! My name is Quanzitize and I have been in the keyboard scene for around 7 months now, in those times I have struggled to find a decent set of pbt keycaps that do not have many major faults besides Leopold caps which only usually come in 66% / 87% and I have a wkl 60%. Now I have tried EPBT but the warping is quite annoying and having to heat / boil keycaps just to stop an error that should not exist for a 70+ dollar keycap set is to me completely unacceptable. OG cherry doubleshots do exist but they have their rarity and I did blow most of my money on my most recent keyboard + I doubt they would have the exact caps I would need. Should I just go for abs plastic keycaps? I have ordered gmk Merlin which should arrive in a few months but I would rather have an alternative decent keycap set until then. I suppose I am going on too much on this, but to simplify my entire question what producer makes some decent pbt keycaps without many major errors like warping. Blanks do work too.

All PBT sets have some kind of warping its hard to get it straight. Even CRP R2 has issues of the banana effect. With Epbt i didn't notice it much with my korean on red  key set but i think it differs for each set made.
