Third time this item has dropped. First time it was for the Ultimate, but we got only about halfway to the MOQ of 250 units. Second time was for the Professional, and I didn't join because I wanted an Ultimate. Now the Professional is back again, and this time I see the TKL model isn't available. Makes me kind of wonder if Massdrop is clearing out stock of a low-sales product, and perhaps won't be offering it again.
After complaining previously about the lost chance to get an Ultimate,* the only thing I've achieved is that I still don't have a Das 4 with Clears. Not much of an achievement, especially since I've always wanted one. I can't see into the future, but my guess is that my chances of getting one of these boards are only decreasing with time. So now I'm eating my words and joining for the Professional.
I have a set of blank black PBT caps sitting around already, so I can get close to the Ultimate's all-black look. All of the boards I currently own are TKL or smaller, so this will be my first full size. And after all that, I have to say that I'm really looking forward to it.

Just remember that massdrop doesn't cater to individuals... It's a *group* buy organization

They should stop catering to plebs and cater to individuals who can afford a decent keyboard without these limitations. clear mx switches sweet. but where is the soul?
