Does anybody else have an issue with twisted stems?  Here are some of the more worse ones on mine.  A ton of the other caps are twisted as well, but less so and harder to take picture of.  GMK 3run for comparison.

@mgsicker  Maybe something to tell GMK to check so it doesn't happen to other sets?

You are not alone, seeing similar results.

Didn't notice it, but from my photo you can see the W and U look a bit off.  Same keys look off in your photos. I can't tell when it's in front of my and i'm typing though, only if I lean over the board and look from straight above.

That's why I sold mine, though I was also disappointed in the color matching. $140 for a gmk set and GMK cannot even get the keycaps to be straight. My spacebar was also somewhat warped.

Same here. I noticed it a few days ago that some of the caps looked a bit off and was wondering if that might have been soldering. I'll take another look tonight when I'm home but good chance I'm encountering the same problem.

Edit; checked, have the same issue. It's mostly (if not only) on R2 though, so that surprised me.

This is my concern with the massive backlog they have. Feel like their QC has dropped significantly.

Not only W and U but that whole row looks off, also left shift is a bit weird or was it angle of camera?

From what I remember, the I, Y, and U were really off. Some keycaps below that wrre crooked as well, though not as bad.

Also gmk really needs to work on the numbers legends. None of them look like they're on the same plane and too much thickness inconsistencies.

Some pictures. Last 2 are Olive only, first 2 with some minimal caps in between.

I agree that the legends are not great on this as well.  Even before I saw this comment I noticed that the ? looks skinny and the shift is Shift.
GMK 3run for comparison.

Do all sets have issues with twisted stems on some keys? I just ordered this set and didn't see this thread beforehand.

Most likely, yes.  This also probably effects most GMK sets that have run since olive as well. It really isnít that noticeable.  People are expecting too much from these plastic bits.  I have seen slight inconsistencies in almost every finished keyboard I own.  You can have issues with keycaps,  switches sometimes have slightly crooked stems, and it is also possible to have slightly rotated switches when using plate mounted switches instead of PCB mounted.  So many variables.  Donít get too caught up in perfection.  The set is still quite nice.

I guess this is all subjective. I don't mind slightly imperfect legends. But the crooked thing is very easy to notice. Symmetry seems to be a key thing our brains lock on to.

Anyone know why the rama cap says RAMA x Olivia and not RAMA x Olive?

Definitely hoping I can grab a set of these at some point, I really like the color choices.

I know, but just historically the engravings for rama keycaps are named after the set, not the designer.
