These look interesting. Does anyone have experience with this profile? I know Cherry, OEM, MT3 and like those. I have an SA set that I don’t love the profile of (at least it’s the most unfamiliar). what say you all about MA?

I've never used MA, but from what I can tell, it looks like a taller XDA. Uni-profile keys aren't my favorite since I'm more used to sculpted sets like Cherry and OEM, but they aren't bad by any stretch. I know Hipyo Tech has used the "Blue Cat" colorway of this set on several boards and refers to it as a "cheat code for thock", so you may want to check out some of his videos for reference.

Perfect, I’ll look at those vids. Thank you!
If you can adjust to all of the keys being the same profile, the other consideration is that these things are several mm taller than any other keycap I've used. It doesn't sound like much, but it did take some getting used to learning to hold my hands just a little higher over the board. I've been using the Blue Cat set on a custom board I built, and it only took a couple of days for me to be comfortable with it. YMMV. I'm a bit OCD, and am motivated to adjust to whatever keycaps allow me to fill out a weird layout with as few different sets as possible, and without profile issues. I'm going to be building an odd board soon using 3D printed parts to combine a split board back into a single keyboard, and the first row is going to be a nightmare of 1.5U and 1U modifiers with a spacebar split into two 3U bars. The best I've come up with is the Idobao 9009 kit for most of the board, leftover modifiers from Blue Cat on the first row, and XDA profile 3U spacebars ordered from AliExpress.

Thanks for the insight!
