What exactly is so wrong with these stock keycaps? I thought doubleshot PTB were the best in the market. Anyone could further elaborate?

I saw a couple of comments from people complaining as to the choice of the keycaps. Would like to understand why that would be.

I can show the difference between the keycaps chosen for the K-Type and the ones commonly found on the market. The keycaps we use have No Gaps, and most other doubleshot backlit molds have Gaps in the lettering.

In the enthusiast community a lot of people buy keycap sets (if you search Massdrop for Granite keycaps, or Carbon keycaps you will see them there). So some people have their own keycap sets that they want to use. There are a lot of differences between keycap sets but the main differences between the keycap set included with the K-Type and other sets is: 1) color and 2) these are double-shot PBT meaning that the light actually shines through the keycap legend and lights it up whereas a keycap set like granite or carbon does not have a legend that lights up.

I was one of those people. To clarify, I have they keycaps that they are using on the K-type. They are some of (if not the) best doubleshot backlit keycaps on the market. My issue is that there aren't any higher-end custom backlit caps from the likes of GMK and SP, which means that the caps can't upgraded without sacrificing the shine through legends. For most backlit boards, these caps would be an upgrade, which is why I bought them.
