I really like my Nautilus set, but Laser and Penumbra are also favorites of mine. I have both laser and Penumbra on order, so I'll have a better opinion once I see them in person.
My very first order of this profile here is SA Carbon. I joined MD because I wanted SA 1976 but even if round two ever came for it, or any set I buy in the future I’ll still go back to SA Carbon.

I‘ve learned so much from the Carbon drop, and spent a lot of time following that discussion thread. T0mb3ry even made a “salty” kit to highlight the debacle event of incorrect pricing. Only creator I know who adds a special set to commentate an event during a drop. So far this set matches all the colors of my keebs; black, silver and pink. It shocked me that Carbon worked well on pink, and now makes me think Carbon won’t disappoint me with any future keebs I buy.



Lights on!

Congrats on that awesome set. So mad that i missed this

If you're into blank keycaps, you can get 3~5 Gateron/EnjoyPBT blank keysets for the price of a decent labelled keyset to create mixed tone keysets with. So far I've gotten 4 (Black, Dark gray, Milk White, and Ghost White). I plan to get Tan and CMYK to finish the blank collection.

Best parts are:

1. Quality is top notch
2. You can create new keysets when you get tired one

That said, it's all Cherry profile so I ordered a SA Solarized Penumbra for times when I miss the sound of raindrops.
If I could only have one SA set it would be Space Cadet.

I've seen this layout a few times, and I really really like it. Where did you buy it?

Oh I only wish this was mine! I believe this beautiful TX-CP belongs to Wodan.

Not sure if this qualifies, but unicorn vomit, any profile, is the gift that keeps giving (and evolving).

I mean I guess it counts
As of right now it has to be DSA Granite, just because it looks good on anything you put it on. The Tai-Hao Mini Classics that just dropped are pretty good looking too (I got mine in yellow)
Endgame=One more keycap set XD

What keycap set is that in the picture?

DSA Granite
I'm pretty keen on the Laser keys, but Nautilus makes me feel things.
Laser
GMK Honeywell for me (Don't actually have a set :( hoping for another GB) . I also quite like the SA Mint set that's in GB right now too.

I totally had a brain fart. It's SA LIME. Link here: https://kono.store/products/maxkey-lime-group-buy

You could always go with DSA honeywell. More flexibility and better looking red mods than GMKs set imo
SA Solarized Penumbra and GMK Nautilus for sure.
MT3 maybe.
Gateron/EnjoyPBT blanks and Filco Double-Shot SA are co-winners in the bargin category.
