Keeping my fingers crossed here 7bit, Ordered up two nice sets (IMHO) they can't refuse to make
The Rounds by 7bit are so unique - SP had better reconsider and further collaborate with 7bit.
What's more is that SP is getting into a worse and worse situation amidst all the competitions:
They have 3 profiles DCS, DSA, and SA.
- SP's DCS (similar to GMK/Cherry/Gateron) are paper-thin, most users don't want them. And they didn't try to develop a full set of Alps cap - Matias is definitely (really?) pushing out the Alps PBT dyesub in 2017.
- SP's DSA has Matt3o beloved and careful work Granite, but the set suffers from PBT shrinkage issues because of improper tooling. The set is nevertheless still quite popular and they tried to play the same card twice - Granite High-contrast. But China's new low profile XDA in PBT dyesub, targeting at the weaknesses of DSA seem to have made a reasonably good job - in terms of minimal PBT shrinkage and dyesub work. Users have a much cheaper (50% of the price) decent option in the future.
- SP's SA has been huge MassDrop hits, however, they are slow compared to the Chinese. Chinese manufacturers already developed high profile caps similar to SA in both PBT dyesub and ABS doubleshot, and of course with a pricing 50% of the SP 'equivalent' and with production time of only 3 months. With decent QC by qualified enthusiasts for Chinese manufacturers' dyesub work, ABS color choice, and key cap legends, SP will easily be blown out of the water.
SP's strength seems to remain in their color options and color system, DSA ABS and their now less unique SA. Yeah, SP has their other income sources, but I hope their fossil mindset can adapt more quickly realizing the competitions they have to confront.
