Thanks.
What do you think?
Should it be nice for us - SA lovers?
I'm awaiting for Mito's XDA Canvas to come out soon and thinking of this one giving it a shot...

I have a set of MDA on my XD75re at work. I like it a lot! Very comfortable and feels quite different than OEM. I have not tried SA yet, so can't compare those. Got a full SA set and SA r3 set coming in the mail so will test and compare a lot in coming weeks.

It's not bad and the typing angle is definitely one of the better ones for spherical top keycaps.  That being said I still like cylindrical top keycaps the best for typing.

But if you want to pick a spherical top I would say this or uniform SA are my favourite.  MDA has a nicer typing angle while SA just sounds the deepest and nicest out of any keycaps.

Strictly typing then OEM and Cherry is much better.

@Melgeek when do you plan to stock the ISO UK extension ?

@OP these keys are very flat on top, you wont really feel they are spherical to be honest. The top surface is very large and square-ish. The keycaps are very thick and in PBT, leading to a very nice sound. The top texture is fine matte (not as grainy as SP sets for instance). The dye sub is very good, well defined, didnt see any major flaw. Typing comfort is great, the profile is very smooth from row to row. One of my favorites along with KAT and XDAS.
