[FS] Realforce RGB | Tada68 (Aliaz, Alu) | Trade: 70 BKE Ultra L -> Lights

1) Selling a Realforce RGB keyboard (Topre, MX-compatible sliders, 3 light levels, multiple colors, per key programmable actuation level, dedicated key for "3 global actuation levels"), as new, unmodded, with original box. 170€ + shipping (EU only)

I like the feeling of the keycaps (a lot!), but I don't like the "full" format (I never use the numpad) and the fact that it's unsilenced (although it's not loud - key sound is similar with that of an unsilenced Novatouch). RGB lighting is also very nice. If I'd keep it, I'd probably do a silence mod, and change the keycaps (which are ok by themselves, but, since the stems are MX compatible, it would be a pity not to use even better keycaps).

2) Trading: 70 BKE Ultra Light domes for: 70 BKE Light Domes. The ultra light domes are great, tactily-wise, but a tad too light for me. If I'll find my 10g Plum springs (I misplaced them somewhere), I might remove this trade, so .. act quickly.

-----

3) Selling one Tada68 keyboard, with pink Aliaz switches (silent, tactile-ish, 60g springs) and low KBDFans low profile auminum case. No keycaps. Two cone feet included (mounted). Fully functional. Fully programmable too (QMK firmware). The switches are silent (by construction) using a method similar to that of "damped" Alps.

Price: 160$ (or 136.5€) 150$ (or 130€) 137$ (or 120€) shipped to Europe. Or, hit me with your price or trade offer (looking mostly for Topre stuff nowadays, purple sliders etc.)

I can also replace the metal case with a black, plastic one; in that case, price would be 110$ (or 95€) 100$ (or 88€).

Costs are made of (KBDFans prices):

- PCB + Plate + stabs = 52$
- Aliaz switches = 0.55$ * 68 = 37.4$
- Alu case = 55$
- Shipping

BOUGHT:

I'd like to buy a blue-grey keyset made by Leopold, dye-subbed PBT, MX-compatible - they were once sold on ebay by 'widebasket' I think, at the same time with those thick, lasered PBT (Navy, White or Black, top,front-printed or blank) sets.

A Topre keyset from a Leopold FC660C would also be alright.

Or, the new doubleshot PBT blue-grey keycaps from a recent FC660M keyboard would also be good.

Or, I can trade Leopold FC660C grey modifiers for the blue ones.

----

I bought a very nice Plum TKL for a good price, but I'd like to change its 35g domes to Topre domes.
Anything between 60 and 120 "pieces" would be fine.

45g preferred, but I won't say no to 55g.

I think it will be hard to find someone to sell just domes. One thing you might be able to try is get these BKE redux domes. I have no idea how good they are, but they are available bare-bones, and thats something, right? :D

Sorry I don't have anything to sell you. Good luck finding what you need.

Thanks! I know about those BKE domes, but I've read some reviews and I think I'll pass for now (or wait for the super light version, when it gets out). It's not big rush anyway, since I also have some Topre keyboards (Novatouch, HHKB). :)

I might have 60 topre 45g domes somewhere, i will get back to you.

Genuine topre domes dont improve the feel of a plum at all really btw. I put light bke domes in mine and I love it

Thanks, in the meantime Wazazaby contacted me and we struck a deal, problem solved :) Unless you really want to get rid of your domes and have no buyer!

In any case, I didn't expect replies so soon (and more than one), so this is quite an unexpected - nice - surprise. Thanks for the offer!

I read about bke redux domes, but from the reviews they do seem too tactile to me. For comparison, I like mx brown switches, but I find mx clears too tactile. "Normal" Topre domes are quite alright for me, not too tactile, not too linear. In any case, the silencing ring thickness and the keycaps also play a role (to my surprise, I don't like SA profile on Topres).

Edit: This was supposed to be a PM but... It wasn't. Tapatalk updated their mobile app and I've done this twice today, so I feel confident saying that it's their fault somehow. :)

Enjoy my signature they inserted here:

Already bought a set from Wazazaby, thanks for the offer. Although if yours are those from ebay with 4$/dome, that would have been way way too expensive.
