I'm posting this in case someone would be interested, because I haven't found any relative comment that is so enlightening. There is a Royal Kludge clone capacitive switch keyboard on aliexpress (it seems to be made by RK under a different brand name) and I found a very helpful comment from a Topre user who bought it:
"If you're reading this you're probably wondering how this keyboard compares to the Torpe/Novatouch keyboard. Well I own the Novatouch keyboard and two Topre keyboards. Granted all my Topre/Novatouch keyboards are now on ebay. I found the topre keyboard's bottoming out was too harsh and painful for my fingers. Moving to the Plum84 keyboard, how does it compare? I find the keyboard to be superior in typing experience and bottoming out experience than the Topre keyboards. Like the Royal Kludge keyboard the stems suffer from a little bit of scratchiness that is something that could be improved. If you're looking for a topre experience I wouldn't recommend it. If you want a Topre experience buy a real Topre, but if you want something that feels great and is fantastic to type on get this keyboard! I have all Topre keyboards 30g, 45g, and 55g and this is hands down the better experience."

Ty for your input, i've been looking at that one too. But one really has to like the 35g, but the real no go for me is that 5.5u spacebar, good luck if you want to use another keycapset.

I'm assuming 5.5u spacebar on the Plum is nonstandard? (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Nope, it isn't and you won't find one in regular sets. It would have been better to go three modifiers 1u and spacebar 6.25u or all six modifiers 1u and 7u spacebar. Still not "standard", but something like this usualy can be covered with additional sets by community driven keycapdrops.
