9. Ducky separate keycap sets

There are 3 basic types of keycaps available - ABS, regular PBT and thick PBT. All keycaps sets provided by us are with ISO layout and either Nordic or German legends.

ABS is the most common material for the keycaps. With Ducky legends are typically lasercut to the top of keycap. ABS is most often used with backlighted keyboards.

Regular PBT is more durable than ABS and often feels a bit textural under fingertips. Legends are typically either engraved or laseretched, and typically there are also options available without no legends at all. Although PBT can be technically used with backlighted keyboards, its not done often as it does not let light through but gives more like a glow.



Thick PBT is the best a man can get in terms of keycaps! The keycaps are made of thick and rare PBT material, they don't grease up like ABS plastic. As they are thick they don't brake down or bend easily. With thick PBT dye sublimation technique is sometimes used. Then the legends have been dye soaked through the pbt material. No matter how long you use the caps, the markings do not wear off. The markings also don't change color after intensive use. These are infinite. Some far away future day archeologists will find vital evidence that earth had intelligent life when they dig out these.



FAQ

Q1. Can I use ISO layout keycaps with ANSI layout keyboard?
A1. Yes and no. One can use letters, numbers, function keys (F1-F12) and some of the other keycaps, but some keys differ in shape (e.g. Enter and left Shift). Also good to remember that what happens from any key is defined by operating system keyboard layout settings, not the label on the keycap.

Q2. Can I use Ducky keycaps with mechanical keyboards from other vendors?
A2. Yes, if the keyboard has Cherry MX switches. Keycaps have Ducky/Filco OEM profile.

Q3. Can I use Shine2 keycaps with Shine3 keyboards?
A3. Yes, although some special labels e.g. related to lighting modes or other special functions are then lacking or on wrong place. Does not affect the functionality though.

Q4. Can I use Nordic layout keycaps to modify German layout keyboard or vice versa?
A4. Yes, ISO layout is used both in Nordics and Germany and thus the keyboards can be easily localized.

10. Cherry MX mechanical switch types in short:

MX Brown switch. Tactile switch 45g (55g peak force). A light switch with tactile bump feedback point when button press is registered. Very good for both typing and gaming. A mid ground choice between a linear and a clicky switch. If you are a first timer with mechanical keyboards the brown switch is a very safe and easily adaptable choice.

MX Red switch. Linear switch 45g (30-60g full path). A very light switch which is excellent for fast paced gaming. Is also suitable for typing if you prefer a really light touch when typing.

MX Blue switch. Tactile and clicky switch 50g (60g peak force). The classical and very retro keyboard feel. Bump feedback point and a click when a button press is registered. Excellent switch for typing if the side product generated, the noise, is not a problem for you. Can be used for gaming as well when the feel and the release point of the blue switch has been embraced.

MX Clear switch(fuzzy white). Tactile switch 55g (65g peak force). Similar tactile switch with feedback point as mx brown but heavier. Good for both typing and gaming. If you happen to like mx brown you most likely will like mx clear as well. Especially if you feel that mx brown is too light.

MX Black switch. Linear switch 60g (40-80g full path). A heavier switch for those who like to use a bit more force when typing. Very good for gaming, especially if you are bottoming and holding your keys often in games and need to really feel them beneath your fingers. Also suitable for typing if you like very firm feel and might even reduce errors while typing as you need more force register a button press.

MX White switch (milky White) is heavy soft click 85g (the stem is lubed inside, and click comes with almost no sound). The lubing also makes the MX white feel lighter than it is. If you like a good amount of feedback coming to your fingers without a big sound then MX white is the switch for you.

MX Green switch 80g is a hard click switch…or better said snappy click. It's the brother switch of MX blue but more snappy. If you like a clicky switch but feel that MX Blue is too soft then MX green is the switch for you.
