Very nice :) I can see OTD inspiration but even moreso I see improvement and creative haha.

I heard amazing things about the maker, and how he made sure everything is perfect. Definitely one of the best things this year.  :thumb:

Picked mine up from the post office today. Anodization is, simply put, amazing:





Love the clean lines as well:

Beautiful boards ruined by silly indicator light holes :confused: Is Duck responsible for originating this silly aesthetic?

Still beautiful Matrix, though. The badge is super clean.

So how does one go about getting a Matrix TKL kit?  The Chinese site is understandably only in Chinese and requires signing up to browse and read.  Trying to register there now.

Some first impressions.

Good: Very nice packaging (custom box, dense foam). Beautiful PCB. Anodization and machining/finishing looks and feels top-notch.

Maybe bad: Very light, like maybe 1/3 the weight of my Dolphin. Building it with vintage browns, which I hope will complement the weight and aluminum plate, so this may pose no problem at all. The board is also very flat, which is really obvious in side-profile pictures. I expect it'll take some getting used to, but not necessarily a bad thing either.

Tuned 50 switches last night before bed, hoping to do the remainder tonight and build the board, so we shall see what comes of it then.

Flat is not a bad thing.

Some people hate SA keycaps, but I'm convinced they're not pairing them with the right boards. With how high profile SA caps are, they need to be paired with lower, flatter boards.

Boards like the Abel or Koala are perfect boards to pair with SA. The higher profile cap with the slight angle feels amazing; I love the way R3 or fully sculpted types on my Koala.
