This is my first experience with a custom board and it's blown all my prebuilts out of the water. I've gone from Razor -> Ducky -> Leopold, each feeling like a better typing experience, albeit they felt like small steps, but this? This is in a whole other tier entirely and feels unfair to even compare. I grabbed an NG Black Bakeneko65 along with an accessories bundle of essential items for build and some Gateron Baby Raccoons for the switches. Having never done anything like this before, I'd say assembly was pretty easy although lubing stabs for the first time made me a bit anxious. Nonetheless, when I was done it was pretty clear right off the bat that this was just so much better than I was used to.
The way this board is and its mounting system gives me zero of the metallic ping I could hear from the other boards I had, and the sound of the switches is accentuated in a really nice way, a full sounding gentle clack without any hollowness to my ear, just really bringing out the best in these switches.
The board is hefty, solid and feels well made, the NG finish being very uniform and I could not tell of any imperfections whatsoever. This board also comes with a badass heavy duty traveling case with velcro straps inside as well as a huge microfiber cloth to wrap the board in. Really grateful for this because I travel between locations during the week and it's just so incredibly nice and convenient for the money you spend here.
Very impressed with Cannon Keys here, and would definitely buy from them again, which may be soon, definitely eyeing that Esper keycap set, and will need a different board for that ^_^
