So I just got these today and have begun installing them. I have the backlit doubleshot PBT keycaps that are sold under various brand names and were recently sold here (not Vortex) in OEM profile, with reverse Gateron switches for everything except the spacebar. Unfortunately, I'm finding that all keys except R4 and spacebar seem to get stuck upon bottoming out. Also, for R1, due to the shorter key, I actually have to bottom out to even reach the actuation point, which gets the key stuck. In other words, they are completely unusable with this keyboard/keycap combination.
With regard to difference in feel, I'm finding it to be far more noticeable than with with o-rings. The travel distance reduction seems to be more apparent, while the bottom out feel is smoother.
Edit: I tried them with Imsto PBT keycaps in Cherry profile and they work fine without getting stuck, so this is an issue with incompatible keycaps. Unfortunately, I don't want to change to a different keycap set. Is there any way to make these work?

Any support? Because I feel like I just wasted $40.

Not really. You'll just need to get Cherry keycaps.

I think only you have this problem. You shouldnt have this problem with oem keycaps in general but having north facing led switches might be the cause. Are you sure its properly installed? because zealencios only reduce travel distance a bit not THAT much. Honestly, Any keyboard with north facing switches are just a pain
