Sky Dolch on Realforce RGB looks much better than stock.
« on: Mon, 11 June 2018, 11:27:17 »
Just decided to fit better keycaps to my realforce rgb as I grow tired of the stock keycaps,

Haven't got blank R1s for media keys and APC key so I fitted blank pbt on it, look pretty good.

Key feel is slightly better than the stock keycaps but still sounds worse than my stock 87U, I worry if the upcoming R2 will have the same issue.

I agree, it definitely looks better with Sky Dolch! I might be a bit biased as that's my all time fav colorway, but TBH anything with some color beats black & translucent legends to me. I'm not a big fan of RGB or back lighting at all, so I would end up replacing the stock caps on a RF RGB if I got one also. :thumb: BTW, are those caps GMK or Leopold's double shot PBT?

GMK, the case of rf rgb is a bit grayish rather than black making it fits better than I have expected. Hope Topre will make one with white or light gray case so I can fit it with GMK Olivetti  :) (swapping case with the upcoming R2 ANSI white case will be so expensive :confused:)

Seems to be sold out at the moment but I think GMK necro should be a good match too however I'd say RF RGB isn't the best topre in terms of sound and feel.
