Hello! I am considering buying this for my TADA68 and I believe in order to have it right I would have to buy the base (RAMS), mods (icon) and also the Icon Hobbyist for the bottom row 1u. Is that correct?
Also I'm not quite sure but I suppose the base spacebar is 6.25? This is my first keycap buy so I'm new in this, thank you!

Yes, or you could get Rams + Noire.

It is indeed 6.265u!

Hiya Mito, sorry for the wall of text but this one was a bit tough to explain and I've been trying to find a solution!
I was really looking forward to this set, especially in blue, but unless I'm missing something (could be!) it's really expensive to get support for a 60/65 with an arrow cluster like the Tada68 and the DZ60. As far as I can tell it's only because there's no regular backspace in the text hobbyist kit? As you said the Noire kit has the r3 single space keys for right ctrl/alt/fn, but the text mods set doesn‘t, which blocks those keyboards. Then if you try to add the hobbyist 60 completing set instead of the text mods it's missing the full sized backspace.
It's harder too with the high cost of the Zambs because it throws in the numpad instead of the mods in the noire set, and there's no affordable way to convert that into a normal 60/65 w cluster board which has regular backspace. Painful because one of the hero shots for the set is an all blue 65 board with a cluster! I've waited for the pulse set because of that render and I can't get it unless I spend near $60 on extra mods or $35 on novelties :\
Anyway thanks if you read this far. I love the set but I'm going in circles trying to find a way not to spend a lot more than the cost of a new Tada, a really nice board, to put blue on there :( Hopefully I'm missing something super obvious!

Thank you for the quick response MiTo! I was thinking that, since the price is the same for Noire/Icon Mods (79.99), why don't you add the extra keys to the Icon Mods set just like Noire? For me, having a TADA68 is kind of hard to complete my set with base+mods due to the missing 1u R3 caps, but with Noire, you added those caps. That would be AWESOME since then other users and myself could get the entire set for base+mods. I can't talk for other types of keyboards, but I'm sure that would help a lot of people that have 65/70 types. It's kind of a bummer to have to spend $65 more to get only 4 keycaps. Thank you for reading and thank you for your hard work!
