Kinda wish this had some big strips for feet instead of the tiny circle bumpons. Only possible complaint, since the board is gorgeous. Definitely in!

Nicest TKL out there! Have never appreciated the inconsistent spacing on the F row for normal TKLs.

This has been asked before, they said that the bumpons are more easily replaceable since you can buy them from any hardware store, whilst the strips have to be custom cut. And ultimately not last as long.

As Iíve said before I am also in favor of strips, though I also see the argument about being able to replace them. Custom die cut or custom molded strips would be extremely difficult to replace in the future. That being said though, Iíve never had any issue with a strip/bumpon coming off and needing replacing. I just got the Rama U80, and the strips on it, the M60-A, and the Dixie Bauer Proto I tried at the Seattle meetup all seem very solid. I even ordered extra 60% strips from Rama to use on a 60% case Iím having MJF printed.

Stunning. Could there please be a hot-swap PCB version?

I (and I'm sure many others) can't justify spending a huge amount unless the PCB is hot-swap, because then we can't find the right switch for the board and we're stuck with the initial build. I saw what you wrote about the different layouts, but can't you just have one hot-swap PCB and one non-hot-swap PCB, where you sell maybe 100 hot-swap PCBs? Why is that not a possibility? The interest for this board is huge.

The philosophy is that when you're at a point where you're spending big money on a keyboard, you should already know what switches you want to use for it. And if there's new hype switches down the line, you can always desolder.

Hotswap sockets have a finite lifespan and are somewhat more prone to failure. You'll find very few "high end" hotswap boards in the market (the only ones I can think of are Rama).

I would argue that the majority of people who will buy this board will know exactly what switches they are using for the build. If you want it to be hot-swap you can always solder in mill-max sockets.

Iron165 MAX aftermarket was ~$2K, I think. I could see this going up to $3K... :-/

My advice would be to not pay aftermarket if you miss out on this one and that price seems too high (it _is_ too high).  New group buys for boards of this caliber happen every few months and will just keep coming.  Keep your eye out for a group buy with the specs you want until you're able to get into one.  It will happen - maybe not this one, but the next.

Eventually you'll land a board with enough hype (and the hype for this one will have died down) and you can trade for it.

Bottom line - gotta have patience in this hobby and realize that new stuff is always on the horizon.

Yeah it really hasn't been easy trying to find a white board.  I'm still on the lookout for one that's either TKL or has a F row and arrows.... sigh.

We will be working with vendors again and they will be FCFS through the respective vendors websites.

Quick Update:

Prototypes were ordered a few weeks ago with a 5-6 week lead time on them.  We are hoping to have them around end of August. PCB will be ordered here within a few days so that might limit build streams but we will have photos of the boards themselves when protos arrive. This time we ordered one of every color option we are considering instead of just a single sample and ano chips.

Thanks
