Sorry for sounding n00b. But I only have one. (Should have mentioned that? lol) And I read somewhere that it's better to pull simultaneously on both ends (speaking of the spacebar ) or else I risk damaging those MX switches? Ones with stabilizers?

It's not all that easy, though.

If you pull up on one side, likely nothing would go wrong, but it's the safer and better option to pull both sides, so you can avoid pulling the stem awkwardly.

It's really hard to damage these stems, though. It's definitely better to have to two keycap pullers for the long keys, though. Probably better not to push your luck.

Well, explain why I am wrong then. I've never tried one, since stores here don't stock them.

well i paid $180 for mine so lol.
Mine's modded to 45g for all keys but function row and arrows.

They feel more responsive imo than MX Reds, and i love Cherry MX Reds.
I guess it give more of a feedback feel when i type on them. You don't get the "thunk" you get from MX keys.

I mean i totally agree that they're really expensive and honestly shouldn't cost that much, but due to topre co. has basically full control on how they want this switched applied and what companies can build them.

I dunno if you remember just a few years ago, Cherry MX Red keys were very rare, and Cherry Red Filcos were going for 200+ (i bought my linear R for $170 back in 2012)
In like 2011 or so, you really didn't have as many options as you do now. If Topre ever releases the switch technology to mass production, im sure it'll drive down the price. Like the Typeheaven right now is a $150.00 topre keyboard, The Leopold FC660C is MSRP around $190, i'm sure topre keyboards will slowly come down in price in the next year or so.

I've only learned how good a mechanical keyboard was in the last year. If those boards do come down a bit, I might get one to try. I'm not really the biggest fan of linear swithches, but it could be good for gaming.

From my understanding it's the same principle as why Filco or Ducky boards are expensive, partially it's because of the amazing build quality and backlighting respectively, partially because people will pay that much for a Filco or a Ducky, and to charge any less, in some people's eyes, is stupid.
