Some pictures under microscope for comparison:

+ enjoy PBT (Gateron base)


+ imsto PBT (Gateron base), Ivan Group Buy


+ imsto BSP PBT (BSP base), this Group Buy


My thoughts:
3 sets have superb quality of dyesub, perhaps they are the best in term of modern and ready-to-market sets.
Like I said before, you can't be wrong with either of these sets.
EnjoyPBT and Imsto PBT on Gateron are pretty similar even there are some different legends printing on these 2 sets.
imsto dyesub has proven to be the best on the modern market, as we can see in the pictures, his BSP PBT dyesub has slightly different with enjoyPBT and his own Gateron dyesub. The dyesub quality on BSP is even better in term of clarity and sharpness comparing to enjoyPBT and imsto Gateron PBT.

Thanks for the high quality photos, phoenix1234. I'd like to get a hold of some BSP caps in the future, but in the relatively near future I may pickup the grey thick PBT caps imsto has. I think these KBC caps have seen enough use, and I'd like to get something with more thickness.

Does anyone know if there are plans for another round? I've reached out to IMSTO, but perhaps someone has caught word of it from elsewhere.

imsto told me last month that he plans on doing one again later this year, around the same time as the other GBs.
I asked if he'll include Desko this time around, but I've yet to hear from him.

Good question, I also want Desko, actually, Red Desko.

Could you help ask if he can make it? It's a really nice variant of Desko that looks amazing. :)

I feel that there's gonna be demand for such a cool looking red-legend printed set. ;)

I'll be sure to ask when he responds!

I'm mostly interested in regular Desko as I don't have a good classic beige set. Pure ol' beige is a bit too boring for my tastes; Desko adds just enough spice to make it stand out while still retaining that plain look.

People who have received their keyset, what spacebars did you get? Just a 7x?

Yes, just 7x (ABS GMK), but if you want 6.25x or 7x PBT (Gateron base - pretty close to Cherry OG), you can purchase freely from his website:

Thank you. (also thank you for the amazing closeup pictures posted above!)

Can you confirm that it's the same shade of white? I already ordered regardless since I don't feel like hawking the classifieds for one of these, but just wondering.

Oh, so those are by Gateron? I was wondering who made them and what profile they were. Great to know; will definitely order a few.

Great! I know Gateron is Cherry profile and makes enjoyPBT's caps, but I wasn't sure which space bars were those on imsto's site.
Neat!

I can confirm that the 7x PBT space bars from imsto that I ordered have pretty close shade of white to the BSP PBT.
They were made by Gateron and they have Cherry profile. I will take some pictures when I get home for comparison versus Cherry OG 7x PBT space bar.

Ok, here we go:

From left to right:

1) Cherry OG PBT 7x
2) Cherry OG PBT 7x
3) Gateron PBT 7x (received from imsto, need to buy separately from the GB)
4) Gateron PBT 7x (received from imsto, need to buy separately from the GB)
5) GMK ABS 7x  (received from imsto)
6) GMK ABS 7x  (received from imsto)
7) another Cherry OG PBT 7x (got from Cherry 11800 Compaq, it is slightly lighter than 1 and 2)


Cherry OG PBT 7x Weight: 7.91g


Gateron PBT 7x: 7.60g

My thoughts about Gateron PBT 7x: it has a very good quality, highly recommended if you are looking for a 7x PBT space bar on the market . It is a bit lighter than Cherry OG PBT (0.3g) but the surface is rougher than Cherry OG PBT. The colour is pretty matched with BSP PBT white.

Doesn't seem like too many people bit from this GB. I'm surprised. Anyone don't like their set?

I think everyone loves their set, but, as this is the third one of the same sets at a high price, it may be that fewer people are joining with each year as they have no need.
But seeing as there now are many more newcomers since last GB, hopefully there will be more!

I feel that the new IMSTO GB that uses Gateron blanks is a little less pure than BSP, and would love to see another BSP GB.

Id be pretty happy if round 4 at least used the cherry replica font that round 3 used. stepping down to gateron blanks cuts the cost by a ton so i understand that.
Check out my sales thread.
