I think pbt dye-subs are the best because they keep away the shine while keeping the lettering durable.

I have WYSE (thick) doubleshots, normal ABS keys, and PBT (on my unicomp) out of those, I vastly prefer the dye-sub pbt.

I would really love a set of those blue dye sub, and i do have a tkl, but i don't have the money to do so right now.      :hurt:
right now my budget for key caps is only $70.00 max
Oh, and one more question if anyone could answer for me, do pbt have a more solid feel than the cherry double shots?

I think cherry DS feel more solid then my PBT's since they are thicker....

I prefer pbt! ABS feels cheap to me compared to pbt.  I mean, the topre RF uses pbt, it must be the best :D

Does that mean that ABS is best for the spacebar? :smile:

It's barely possible to dyesub on black PBT.  Something will be there, but being able to see it will be another matter entirely.
