I'm actually chuckling a bit - back weight/ black weight.

Alex's email also hinted at a back weight - so that'll be interesting.
As to the weight colors - zF never really said anything. The prototypes they had on thesis' insta as well as the GB page shows sliver as well as brushed brass. So people - including myself - were wondering if thats gonna be an option.

I wish zF/thesisCamper would comment and clarify things a bit !

Alex will be addressing your queries soon, also there's no black weight it's a "back" weight on the rear.

Thanks for chiming in @thesiscamper  !!

Yes - I understand there is no "black" weight - that's why I was cracking up a bit.
I really wish there were a back weight -priced extra - would lend to some interesting color combinations.

Yes I saw that too - but I sort of assumed that electroplated brass meant just brass colored brass. I did not see any suggestion of colored weights.
That being said I'd jump on one, and I hope that it turns out to be the case ...

I believe zF intends to include the rear weights to those in the priority list, but let's wait for confirmation.

hilarious that there was that misunderstanding but I'd much rather prefer the back weight. :))

In an email with Alex, it was confirmed to me that there will be back (rear) weights for the priority units.

I wasn't following this group buy until I randomly saw the thread and bought in on the first of this month so I assume I'm not "priority", so can I pick up a weight later? I may not want to depending on the price but I am somewhat interested.

most likely not, i want to say if the non priority units dont include a weight and there was no option to buy one than no. the priority units are different because we are the original backers that paid and were ready to buy the keyboard originally before it failed and eve picked it up.

I think that the "back" weight is only given to priority buys and Chinese national buys

So if I understand this right this is a weight additional to that "inside" the cutout kira logo on the back side?
Because this should be included in all buys as it said that on the zFrontier page.

Yep. The internal weight (w/ KIRA logo) is basically included in all buys (international, priority, chinese). The back weight (additional part) seems to be only for priority and chinese buy.

Ah ok. Then I don't really care :D
I only really need the included one.
But just out of curiosity:
Are there any pictures of the additional weight?
I don't think that I have seen one on here.

kinda wish it would have come at the same time as the board but now instead of one ill get two, one to match each board. I just like when everything all arrives at once especially  when i know there gonna nail me international shipping again lol.

Oh ****!  That's actually nice!  I'm maybe starting to feel okay that I never heard back from zfrontier about possibly changing colors, hahaha.  I'll be happy with that.  I notice that one has a silver weight insert - do we have any info on weight finishings yet?

Thanks for the pic, dude!

I was hoping you would be satisfied! The board looks amazing and you should be excited :cool:
