Okay I really want the yellow but I can't figure out which caps would work with it besides Godspeed (which I don't have). If you're getting yellow what are you pairing it with?

I've got:

GMK Terminal (R2 soon)
GMK Plum
GMK Laser
GMK Coniferous
GMK Metaverse (in gb)
SA Pulse (recent MD gb)
SA Carbon

Plum probably is your best bet since it works well with Gold case.
Other sets (they are nice~), I'm not that keen on.
Classic beige (9009, etc.) works well with pretty much everything.

yeah, i have similar thoughts on picking ecoat white. at least with white you can play off the white a particular set may have. with the yellow you have to rely more on softer color keysets. for example, i think dsa/jtk hana would go well with this. sa by the sea, sa bubbles. sa grand budapest. a lot of the more popular sets, many of which you have, tend to skew towards looking better on darker keyboards.

Yeah I think I might reconsider the yellow one then.  Ideally I don't want to be stuck using a few keysets. Thanks for the input!

Yellow anod case doesn't' get along with many keysets, that's also the reason why yellow is a rare color in customs. Silver, grey, and black cases can match almost all the keysets.
Rarity, however, is also a feature that many people in the community value a lot. We are providing this color to those who want rare colors, even not too many.

Planning to get yellow and pair with SP Song Dynasty [1], I think it's going to work out really well even though both that keycap set and yellow anodized keyboard is really hard to match with anything else. Nice work foxlab team!  :thumb:

For matching keysets with the yellow case you could probably also go with DSA Milkshake, DSA Peach, GMK Serika or SA/GMK Chocolatier!

I bet GMK Serika will match the yellow Leaf 80 very well.

We found that gradient cases look much better along with gradient plates, so everyone who ordered gradient anodizing cases will get one additional gradient plate.
