0002 is the lowest you can get, because I've got 0001.

Wow, I am excited. But this is the first time I am doing a SPH GB - if I want to save money, will the HONEY/TKL kit fit both my WASD ten key less and Poker II? I don't need to buy both if I can help it.

And can you guys help me which space bar should I get (for WASD and Poker II) - I think it is HONEY/SPACE625/GREY.

Finally, why is HONEY/ALPHA/RED all row 3s?

.. he's just a poor kid from the stupid ages.
Separate ADDRESS procedure than CherryMX? Or was my PM just now for HONEY/SIXTY enough? I'm just getting started…

Edit: seems to be separate. Once I sent 7bot my email address again, I was in.

I'm going to guess, given the layouts show, that this is SA sphericals again?

Colors are not 100% fixed yet.
Most presumably:
grey: GD
white: WA, or some very light grey
red: RA
black: GX or NN

Will these have the same profile as the Round 4 SPH?

I assume these will fit Filcos and the main kit will only consist of Grey and White.

Cheers.

Decision made. Make my Ducky Mini look even sweeter!

Will grab bags be made available like with Rd 4 after the GB? I missed out on those and sure would love to have a mass of spare caps!

I'm order #0007! Not bad!

Btw 7bit, in the email sent out, it says to contact CherryMX. I think it should be 7bot.

I'm interested in the red alpha set. But how does a red and grey keyboard looked? Won't a primary red be too overwhelming?

Just to clarify. JRET is an ISO return or the classic massive J return?

It is indeed ISO, not Big Ass Return.

Awesome. Ordered!

Sad not to see a row 1 1x Delete to go nicely with the 1x Backspace in HONEY/FUNCTION/RED but its workable.
