Edit: 10/5/20

We plan on removing the brass weight and baking the paw engraving into the aluminum backing.

Two main reasons for this - 1. board will already be heavy due to it's size,
2. We really want this to be as cheap as possible - that is what the southpaw75v1 was all about, and we want to keep that trend for this board as well.

Let us know your thoughts!

Reserved! Any idea about a price, considering this seems to be much more high quality than v1?

per the Discord, it's TBD $300-500, but with a budget FR4 version like rev1 as an option that'll be under $75.

If this were to ever come with a split space bar design, this would be the most end game southpaw board!! Nevertheless, great job on the design  :thumb:

Looks great!
Will the pcb from V1 be compatible with V2? https://holyswitch.co/products/southpaw75

If so, I would be down for an option just for the case and internal gasket system!

Thatís super disappointing. I can only hope that v2 is relatively cheap to justify buying it after already buying v1

The reason this is, is just for a better board.. It supports multiple layouts, has an added blocker, a daughter board, and different dimensions to fit.

The v2 is supposed to be different, having the same PCB limits us. However, the v1 is open source and people are already making 3d printable cases for it in the southpaw75 discord.

Love my V1 and in for this V2.

Great that you are trying to keep the price low and have also added some angle. Looking forward to it.

I had no idea this was even possible. But as someone who has never used their numpad due to lack of dexterity I am super excited to get this set.
