I suppose it's for the Backlit fans that "1! 2@" madness got started. *sigh*
Does this fit the Das 4 Keyboard?
I just put these on my keyboard yesterday and I noticed the main keys are complete while the rest (ESC, F1 etc.) are split. The lights shine through pretty well on all of the keys but some of the keys coming in broken kind of defeats the purpose of getting these.
Just fitted mine. Nice clean set although the main keys (A-Z 0-9 and ALT) in my white batch are definitely not seamless - the rest are. I got a set of both the black and white ones and there's clear differences between them (and the photos used in the drop).
Minor thing but the black space bar also doesn't have any spots for the lights to get through (white one does).

I'm raising a ticket with support but would be curious to see any other sets people receive.

I ended up returning the white set for a refund. The space bar in the black set was the only issue I noticed with that one but it's very strange for the sets to be so inconsistent. Incidentally I got my replacement white set from https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/search.php?keyword=ducky+seamless and everything is perfect.

I also bought both the black and white sets from mechanicalkeyboards.com and they're perfect as well.
I really like how the fonts are not "gamerfied"
I really want to buy this but mechanicalkeyboards.com doesn't have them up for sale right now. It says they're in stock, but you can't put them into a cart to purchase them. I've been stalking these for over a month now since they first showed on "to arrive" on mechanicalkeyboards.com. What the heck? :( This might have to be my go-to since mechanicalkeyboards.com never responds to emails, never picks up their phone, nor on social media either. Sigh.
I have a question that I hope someone will answer before the drop ends, here's goes: does these or any doubleshot keycaps provide higher actuation force compared normal PBT kecaps? I would like your experience. I hope it doesn't because I like typing on heavy switches.

Because they're heavier, yes, it would affect the actuation force a little if you measure it, but personally I have not noticed any difference in use. The main difference is in the sound when bottoming out and in the feel.
Ducky come clutch with a clean af pbt keycap set.
Fucking lit.
If the caps costs $25 then this is really a better deal. mechanicalkeyboards.com has these for $39.99 as well so I don't see the point of this drop at $39.99.

I've been keeping track of this and haven't been able to pre-order them but I don't know about you, have you had any luck? This seems to be the better option for now because obviously MK isn't working for me.

Hello,
my post had been meant as an answer for GokieKS and not as an advice to order at MK instead of MD. Regarding your question, i havn't ordered these keycaps anywhere, i'm a lot deeper down the rabbithole regarding keycaps.
Being from Germany MD is usualy hard to beat regarding price including shipping and i would prefer MD most of the time, because from my personal experience they had been an reliable partner regarding delivery and service when shit happened.
Other folks experience may be different and i'm not happy about everything that is happening here, but i can only speak for myself. MK might be a better/cheaper choice for US residents, if preordering is possible, i don't know, this is up to them/you.
Cheers
pretty sure this will fit my topre realforce rgb - question is regarding texture. i lLOVE the texture of the stock double shot ABS on it. I also cannot stand the ABS texture of the Ducky Shine 4 I had. They were way too slippery. Can anyone comment on how these might feel vs the ducky shine 4 ABS?

I have a Topre RGB and this set is a very good alternative to stock. The texture is slightly more smooth, it basically feels like how the stock set felt after a couple weeks of usage.

They are pretty in between
Is this compatible with the new Ducky zero one 2?

If it is Cherry MX it should be. What you need to look out for is the "Enter" key. Just do a visual look and you should be able to tell. Ducky key Caps are boss!
Sorry about that, their naming convention the One 2 was confusing already. Thanks for the info!
Will this be compatible with Corsair K65 Lux edition?

Nope, non standard bottom row on all Corsair, Logitech and Razer boards do not accept normal Cherry MX compatible keycaps.

I think it might have the keys to fit it
I really wish that someone would make front printed keycaps with backlighting compatible. It would make for a really clean effect. ABS is preferrable for better price options.

You can find heaps of these on aliexpress and taobao.

Interesting. I'm just a little hesitant to buy from sites like aliexpress, bit I suppose only so much could go wrong with keycaps.
How do these keys deal with small features like the inside of the letter "D", for example? Previous attempts by Ducky used little black plastic bits on the underside of the keys so the legends looked better but they looked terrible when backlit. Can someone provide closeups of the D and B keys (backlit and not backlit, from the top and underside) so we can have a better look at these?
These caps are pretty good. Identical in thickness, profile and texture to gen 2 Vortex backlit caps (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/vortex-backlit-pbt-doubleshot-keycap-set), and "Captor" caps (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/backlit-doubleshot-pbt-keycap-set). The legends are complete, not split like the vortex set, and are positioned better than those on the captors. The translucent shot is white like the captors, rather than the soft yellow of the Vortex.
how thick are these?
Make_cthulu_great_again
1.2mm (measured using digital calipers)
Oh how I wish there was a Nordic/Danish ISO kit for this.

I've found this precise set in Finnish and German ISO, would either of those be appropriate?
IronearVuvuzela
Sadly not, for me it needs to be Danish, Norwegian or Nordic.
Please give us an alternative to the Windows logo.

They used to have their "Ducky Duck" character on them, on their older keyboards...........
Retr0
ah, yes… glad to see that go too. Something non-branded would be ideal.
Please show a picture of the white set backlit. A major decision factor when buying white backlit sets is backlight bleed.

I can take another picture later when I get home when it's dark, but here is my Ducky One TKL White with RGB. https://youtu.be/g2kaNBQnw0A

I'm pretty sure this is the same keycaps that are used on the Ducky Shine 6, so pictures of the white version of that (https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3173) should give you a good idea.
I have this set. While the legends are not broken (which is why I bought it), not all of the legends shine through completely on the letters that are "no longer" broken, which kind of defeated the purpose. I'm sure there is some quality variance to account for my experience, but caveat emptor nontheless.
I like that the pictures show the alt and windows key in the wrong spot.
Are y'all part of BBB
Can someone explain what this drop is referring to when it says most shine through key caps are "broken" two part designs? I can't see the obvious difference between these and some random cheap shine through key caps from anywhere else.

I believe they are referring to a lot of the sets using a stencil style font. But there are already sets that don't have that so /shrug
Edit: they also might be referring to the way the old vortex and wasd sets are made that leave colored stems and a waffle pattern that block light like this http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/t/r/tray-5.jpg
Regardless Massdrop has been offering non stencil set off and on for ~2 years that doesn't do either https://www.massdrop.com/buy/backlit-doubleshot-pbt-keycap-set
That said the ducky has imo much nicer modifier keys and is likely a higher overall quality.
