The solder and hotswap both support the same layout, yes.

I'd be into a 65%. There was the Maker Phantom last year, but it didn't have a weight. The new CK Bakeneko 65 is a miss with that solid blocker and questionable zinc weight. I haven't seen a good CNC/ano/weight 65% Bakeneko yet...

What's wrong with a blocker and zinc weight?

What's wrong with a blocker and zinc weight?
There's nothing wrong with a blocker, it's the fact that they didn't mill underneath it - it's just a solid post which the O ring has to stretch around rather than go underneath as with the reference Bakeneko or the Maker Phantom.

The zinc by many accounts just doesn't sound "good," although your mileage may vary, of course. Brass will likely carry  different sound signature. The zinc weight of the CK Bake 65 is also quite roughly finished so maybe that affects the sound as well (although I doubt it).

Most vendors have recieved, Keygem had an extras sale couple days ago, they'll do another later
First people have started receiving, with that I can say the time is up!
