Wow, over 700 orders so far! I'm blown away! Thank you so much for your support of this project.
About 45% of you have requested the "alternate springs" option. What do you think of having those "alternate springs" pre-installed? So, for example, if you ordered a 61-key 70g bamboo board and ordered "alternate springs", you would actually receive a 61-key 50g bamboo board and a little bag of 70g springs.
I don't want to change people's orders or expectations like this, but the data is clear: you want more switch weight options! So speak up! :-)

I'm not trying to complain, but what's the diference from that to just offer the weight option? Aside from that, it's really hard to resist the temptation, but I will still wait for the tactile version. Its nice to see you adapt the product due to feedback. You're doing a really nice job man.

Yes! I'd love my 87 key to come with the 70g springs installed.

Offering the weight option would require a bunch of people to re-enter their orders and require adding more options on the backend. The data is already there: people want spring weight choices. I'm working out the details right now to see exactly what we'll offer.

But what would happen if I buy the optional spring just "in case" but I do want the primary weight? I'm saying that because the diferent forces between the activation and bottom-out (from both springs) make me wonder what would be the best spring for me...

Either way there is a 50% chance that you'll spend the 2-3 hours needed to re-spring the board. There are folks, like yourself, who don't know if the 50g Cherry MX Red like weight or the 70g Cherry MX Black like weight are for them. Then there are those who are quite certain. This option doesn't really make things worse for those who are uncertain, and makes things easier for those who are.
Again, nothing is certain yet - still feeling out options here.

There's no avoiding your logic. Sounds good.

I just know I bottom the Kailh Brown's on my Azio (great cheap Mech, IMHO). I know I should stop typing with my fists, but it's probably not going to happen. :)

I would love for my alternate springs to come pre-installed.

I bought the alternate springs, but I wouldn't want them installed by default. They're just there in case it turns out that 70g is to heavy for me to game on, which I doubt. But heck, it was only 5 bucks.

Adding to the chorus that I would love to have the 70g springs pre-installed!

Could there be a split backspace (and split right shift, though less important) option for HHKB users?

Just took those cause of the price, if it turned out the bamboo was too heavy, I would try to switch them, but the default weight would be the weight I wanted, so taking the alternative as an extra isn't an indication of the weight I really want =)

Yes, I would like to have alternate spring pre-installed seeing that there isn't a weight option per board.

I got the extra springs just in case the 70g was too heavy for me I would be able to switch to the lighter springs by myself.

I'm happy with the config options offered and the bag on the side. I want to try the 70g first as I like them heavier. I'll swap out the 50g later if I want to. (I technically ordered both the acrylic 50g 87 key and the bamboo 70g 87 key, so I'll have both anyway plus spares for both sets).

im on the fence right now on ordering the bamboo keyboard because 70g seems too heavy for me since i have small skinny fingers. But if the "alternative springs" 50g comes pre-installed i would love to buy it asap!

Count me in on the group of those that would love to have choice of spring weight - I ordered the 104 key Bamboo, and would really rather have 50g - so I ordered the extra bag of springs to do the laborious process of switching them out myself - would be awesome to just be able to pick our spring weight from the get-go. Thanks for this awesome drop regardless!

Great idea. Definitely want 50 g with Bamboo. Would want the 70g as alternative, if that was an option.

I'm on board with the alternate springs idea.

I got the extras because I was unsure what I would prefer. Having the alternate ones preinstalled wouldn't change much for me in that respect.

I would love to have the alternate pre-installed. But looks like it's split with this regard, as some people are just ordering alternate out of uncertainty.
