This is my first prime keycaps. The build quality on those little things is simply amazing. The look and feel and the comfort is absolutely fantastic and the only complain I have is that the Del key doesn't align properly with my Drop ALT, but I believe this is more Drop's fault since the PCB layout is a bit different with an extra column of keys on the extreme right side. At the beginning I kinda didn't like this Esc thing and I was considering putting an artisan keycap in there, but now I am actually enjoying.

The caps are nice and I would definitely buy it again for another keyboard. The F and J keys have an additional curvature that simply hugs your index fingers and orientate them to the be in right spot while in rest position. It's elegant. The MT3 sculpted profile also makes typing an extra pleasure, makes it look like you are driving a smooth luxury Lincoln, or Bentley.

The overall look is superb. There are simply no complains about this keycap set, they pair well with the Drop ALT hi-profile. Needless to say, they are opaque, not letting LED lights pass through them.

hey mate. interested in what you mean by the issue for the delete key (i have an alt too and thinking about getting this). does it impede on typing or can it be fixed?

Hello friend. Not at all. Sometimes it's even better to have the Del key a little bit shorter than the rest. I think it contrasts pretty well with the taller Esc key on the other side. I made a more detailed blog post where I talk about more aspects regarding my journey, they it out, hope you like it: https://rafalopes.com.br/how-i-built-my-own-mechanical-keyboard/index.html

really like it! I feel I am similar to you in many respects (although I've probably bought a few too many cheaper keyboards/switches/parts along the way, and sold them at a massive loss :( ). Hopefully this'll be my endgame! Also, when you band-aid modded did you take the board apart?

No, I did not need to take the board apart to apply the band-aids. I cut the pieces and put it on just by removing the key switch. It's better because it already indicates the right position. I saw a guy on YouTube showing how, can't find the video now. You can easily achieve with tweezers or toothpicks to help routing the tiny band-aid piece. In my case I just glued the tip of the band-aid on the tip of my finger, routed it underneath the aluminum case and used a toothpick slightly apply pressure and glue it on the PCB.
