Product Description
The same keycap set used on our Drop keyboards is back—in four new colorways. Colorize your keyboard with PBT caps featuring doubleshot, shine-through legends. It's not called the Skylight Series for nothing.

There's a couple of really weird exclusions here, like the top row pg dn and end keys, 1u numpad 0 key, and 1.5u alt and fn needed for a drop shift keyboard and other 1800/96% layouts. It would really help broaden compatibility if there was support for the non-standard bottom row using 1.5 u ctrl and alt and 6u spacebar. There's not a lot of nice pbt backlit sets out there right now and adding that would give lots of people with other brands of gaming keyboard the opportunity to get a nice set. Add in 1u ctrl, alt, and fn keys for the 65%, 75%, and 1800 boards that use them and you'd also make this set work for a lot more people. I personally would really like to see pg up and pg dn in rows 2 and 3 respectively plus a row 4 end for the 65% right column that's common on non-drop boards. This isn't as important to me as the other things I mentioned but I think that is a much more commonly used layout if popular GMK sets are anything to go by. (row numbers assuming #1 is the number row and #4 is the shift row) Sweet sets though, I'm very interested to see where you can take them and I think it's great we are getting good pbt backlit sets lately. EDIT: Oh, also I think the kit image makes it a little tough to tell the row height of some of the keys. The 1.75u shift being shown next to enter is slightly misleading, but it took me quite a while to realize that the navigation keys shown above the numpad are for the alt right column and not for 1800 layouts. SECOND EDIT: I also didn't realize that the drop shift uses a 1u + key on the numpad, so that is missing here as well as the proper row "-" key to accompany it.

Glad to hear you won't have to give the BS "customer support" style replies anymore
Man, the only thing holding me back from buying these is that there are no Mac legends or better yet; system agnostic legends

Oh man, come on. Missing so many keys. No 1u CTRL, ALT, FN, or OS keys. No 1.25u Shift key. No 1u numpad 0 key. No top row profile END or PGDN keys. No blank 1u keys; would have been nice to have a couple of blank 1u keys. No ISO support, for those couple of guys that use ISO layout keyboards; all 3 of them. ;) Why am I bringing that up? Well, this keycap set won't fit a Drop Shift keyboard, or any 1800 style keyboard. Also doesn't fit most compact 84 key keyboards. Needs less than a dozen keys to make this more compatible. If you have a Drop Shift, just move along. If you have an 1800 style keyboard? Move along. Lots of 1u on the bottom row, keep looking. 84 key compact? Keep looking. @Kevin for future runs of this, you guys might consider adding those missing keys. Would make this set way more useful.

Yeah, I assumed drop pretty much drove you all away
Hey everyone! We're excited to begin offering different base keycap sets for our CTRL, ALT, and ENTR Keyboards. Just a heads up, these keycaps have already been made and are sitting at our warehouse. As much as we want to sell and ship them to you immediately, we're currently backlogged at our warehouse (with 10,000 Holy Panda switch orders currently being packed and shipped out the door). In normal times we could adjust our warehouse labor to accommodate these fluctuations but with social distancing requirements, we need to give people lots of space to stay safe! The ship-date for this run is set to July 22nd and we likely won't deviate from that by very much (i.e. no production-related delays). All photos featured are of direct production units, not prototypes or renders. If you've got any questions about these cases, leave them here and we'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

The TKL and 60% Huntsman have standard layout.
Whoops. Left off the TKL part when I was searching and all I saw was that notorious bottom row. At least they got their act together and went standard

"There isn't enough interest in ISO boards to justify" This is not completely faithful to reality, is it? It's more of a self-worsening issue. Because of the lack of ISO offer, a lot of ISO users have to switch to ANSI if they want to hope to get what they like. Or they give up entirely. They literally disappear from the market because of the lack of options itself.

Any reason as to why the Horizon color combo is missing? Checked a few days ago and decided that was the color combo I wanted. Came back today to order and; it's not here.

Will you ever be selling the sets including the 1u 0 numpad key for the Drop Shift? I'd like to be able to get a different colored set but the fact that that one key is preventing me from doing so is just kind of odd and frustrating.

The side profile image makes me think these caps use R1-R1 and not R0-R1 at the top, and there's a R1 Del key in the ALT right column set. I didn't realize that the numpad + is 1u, so yeah it's missing that and the R2 - key to go with it. And we're in custom keyboards after all, we shouldn't have to sacrifice the look with weird gaps in the bottom row.

You're right about Del. I wasn't thinking about the ALT; I've mostly been looking at off-the-shelf backlit keys from Vortex, Tai-Hao, etc. and the R1 Del was on my list.

Are these Windows only? No mac or neutral replacement for the windows logo keycap?
