Welp.
In my closet: I have a Topre Realforce 87u (55g Uniform), a KC60 with mx reds and some cherry profiled PBT caps, and a Pok3r with mx reds and some tai hao caps that I hardly use.
And my daily driver is my Leopold FC660M with mx reds, GMK Griseann, and some GMK mods. I can safely say that after using so many different combinations, this is the best that a keyboard can be for me. What about you, @hhkbp2 ?
EDIT: I totally forgot but I have a minivan as well (mx reds and unicorn puke DSA) it's a fun little package but hard to remember what which key does what when you start switching layers quickly.

That is a nice collection you have. I guess you really like MX red switches. I used to like light weight MX switches, such as blown or blue. Or Topre switches. Later I fell in love with the MX Clear switches, mod with 62g springs. They're called Ergo-Clear switches. It gives the best typing feeling for me to install SA profile keycaps on MX Ergo-Clear.
Currently I have these keyboards:
HHKB pro2: The Topre switches(45g) feel really smooth and comfortable, with default PBT Topre keycaps. I tried both JTK Topre to MX sliders and Plum sliders(from Taobao KBDFans) on it. Get a HHKB which is ready to install and change different MX keycaps. It's good enough for daily usage but far from perfection, because there are flaws on both types of sliders.
Cherry g80-3000: color black, with MX blue switches, and default POM keycaps. No modification at all. It feels tactile on the switches and soft to hit the bottom, since this keyboard doesn't have the middle metal plate. I Like it, but seldomly use it because it takes much room of my deck.
GH60: Customized to HHKB layout, standard bottom row, with lubricated Ergo-Clear switches. The middle plate of it supports removing the top covers of switches without desoldering these switches. I change the switches from Ergo-Clear to MX Blue, or vice verse, from time to time. I would like to use SA keycap set on the Ergo-Clear, and DSA or GMK keycap set on MX blue. The low profile and the thin mold of DSA keycap amplifies the tactile of MX Blue switches. On the other hand, the high profile and thick mold of SA keycap fit really unique to Ergo-Clear. I like both combinations. This keyboard is my daily drive recently.
Ergodox: Fullhand, Ergo-Clear switches, DSA keycaps. It's a classical Ergodox(not Infinity Ergodox). I bought it from Massdrop about three years ago. Really ergonomic to type. I would love to use it anywhere I need to do the typing, because: 1. it's really ergonomic. It eases my wrist pain on long time usage 2. no one else would even tough my keyboard. The only problem is that it's inconvenient to carry them around. I couldn't find a proper carrying case of it. It's much easier to travel with a 60% keyboard.
Besides these keyboards, I get a bunch of keycap sets, which are collected from time to time in years: GMK carbon, Cherry charactered/blank pbt/pom 104, SP ABS DSA hana, royal navy, PBT granite, infinity dye-sub, and also SP SA Filco, Jukebox R2, Chocolatier, etc. Too many indeed I don't think I could remember them all at once. Yeah, that means a lot of money spent, on a bunch of plastic. Most of these money was spent on Massdrop. :-)

Drop CTRL High-Profile "pinging" metal sound when typing?
I recently got the Drop CTRL High-Profile keyboard in the mail, and immediately when i started typing i noticed a loud, metal reverb sound while typing. I have a Drop ALT High-Profile board and I hear absolutely nothing like this from that board. I even took one of my lubed switches from my ALT and one of the keycaps from it as well but I still hear it. Is there a problem with my new board? Or is this just because the CTRL is designed differently? So far im really not a fan, it's the loudest keyboard I've ever typed on. I could take a video for an example if necessary.

New to Drop and Mech Keyboard world - Keysets of 84 keys?
Hi! I just got my second mech keyboard after (a lot of) research and saving up. I don't have the money for high end stuff as of yet - but I'm loving the community and my keyboards already. I have a Motospeed CK108 on Outemus Blues, it was my first keyboard and it's running great for 5 years now with simple maintenance only. And I just acquired Akko's 3084 on Cherry's Browns and blue keycaps set. It costs more than what I intended to spend overall - so bear with me here. I would like to give it a personal touch and get custom keycaps (I know good ones cost a lot - and I'm willing to save up and get a cool set) - but it's hard to find out what keysets would fit. All I know is that my right SHIFT key is unusual and pretty much there aren't any 84 keys set available anywhere (or am I missing something) Is there any other layout that would also fit in my keyboard? Any help is appreciated.

CTRL High Profile Configuration Update-
I just received my keyboard. I'm trying to update the keyboard configuration and the keyboard does not reboot from a reset (either via the fn+B or bottom switch). I have to yank the USB-C cord which prevents it from receiving the update. Anyone else have this issue?
