I got mine in 3 days from MechanicalKeyboards.com with standard shipping. I live in NJ though, so it may differ for you.

Okay thanks, nothing is really in stock right now so I guess I'll have to wait

(I recall reading somewhere how their stabilization technique was something they were boasting about, so they definitely did something different there.)
Truthfully, it bothers me most on the BACKSPACE key, since the rest I rarely need to multitap.
Anyone up to experiment?

I pulled the keycaps on the backspace and the space bar. The spacebar actually doesn't bother me as it doesn't have nearly the mush factor the shift, enter and backspace have (my three most commonly use wide keys)

This is what they look like:




It is those black "switches" that create the mushy factor.


Edit, I just removed the black switches and they are the ones causing the mushiness. However, I don't know how to take the keyboard completely apart to remove the metal stablizing bar that connects both the black switches.

Here is a picture of after the black switch removal


Do note, the key does become a bit wobbly since it only has 1 point of support. I left myspacebar one intact because it is too wide to have only 1 point of support.

Maybe these black switches are swappable with brown switches? Does anyone know how to take apart this keyboard? I don't want the metal bar sliding around.

It would seem to me that adding brown switches in place where the black ones were would make the key require much more pressure to press. Way to be a guinea pig though... thumb.gif

That's true, I think the removal of the metal bar would fix it. Now to figure out how to get there.....

Any idea how other keyboards stabilize the keys? Seems like maybe Ducky's are the only ones with the black switches in addition to the brown ones?

UK layout already out on many UK stores, bitech.net and overclock3d.net had both UK layouts for review in their site. Ducky facebook has a list of the UK retailers I think, you just have to look around their page. The nordic layout is at sale on panvision.com but they have only few combinations of Led/Switches, for example you can only have white backlight and brown keys in the nordic layout.
