No Nice Shine through Keycap Drops

more_vert
Anyone else find there to be a distinct lack of nice keycap sets for us who sit in the dark all the time? I see a lot of nice sets go through, but all of them are for people who live in the light. The only ones I see that are shine through are usually really unappealing. Blanks... stary... galaxy... gradient... or the ganss two-toned abominations. I'm dying for something that looked good in the light and in the dark, without being an extreme explosion overload or too mundane disappointment.

Am I asking too much of this site? I guess maybe it is time to seek a nice set elsewhere, I feel I've been holding out hope for too long now.

I know there are a couple of sets over on mechanicalkeyboards.com, like this one from Vortex: https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1330
The reason you don't see too many though is because they're more difficult to manufacture than standard doubleshot caps. That's also why most of the shine-through caps you'll find are just translucent caps that have a darker coating painted/printed on them to block the light.

1m Can't say either of those are even remotely enticing.
