Topre POM Keycaps?
« on: Tue, 12 June 2018, 12:01:07 »
Has anyone tried the Topre POM keycaps that KBD Fans is selling?  I used to have a Cherry G80-3494 with POM keycaps, and I liked them.  They were thick and had a nice sound.  I'm curious what the KBD Fans ones would be like on a Type Heaven.  The keycaps are the only complaint I have about that keyboard.

I have a set on my 87u (that I haven't used in about a month for other reasons..) I think they are pretty nice, seem to be about as good or maybe slightly worse than the oem caps on the realforce fit/finish wise. Definitely worth the asking price.
Gotcha. Those sacks look mouth watering.

Have some on my fc660c alphas. Nice, about as thick as stock pbt caps, nice sound. They have texture, but because of the material they feel a tad slippery, almost like wet. It's strange but you get used to it and they look very nice:

Leopold FC660C lubed, silenced with landing pads | Norbatouch lubed, silenced with hyperspheres | Poker II MX Blue with vortex aluminum case, vortex red/white doubeshot pbt caps and o-rings | CODE TKL MX Clear with Miami | Unicomp Buckling Spring | GMMK with rainbow vomit switches, mostly jailhouse blues and pandealios

i've heard a lot of good things about them

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong

I bit the bullet and ordered a set of their laser engraved ones, plus a set of KBD Fans silencing rings.  Now I just have to wait a month to actually get them...  ;D

lol so I'm thinking to order the black blank POM for my Type Heaven (closer colour match), my other choice is the KBDFans PBT for Topre, but those are light grey / grey so the colour might not match Type Heaven.

Does anyone have experience on either that can chime in?  Like how do they fare compare to OEM caps.
