I want caps that differ for finger, to help me learn touch typing.

A board with custom caps (per key) is available at one of the major resellers, but it's on the expensive side (as all things custom)

Are the RGB backlit keyboards capable of setting up such a scheme?

since the spacebar is the largest key by a significant amount hhkb uses a little spring to keep it feeling weighted the same as the others but it is the biggest offender in making a slapping noise when you let go of it

i have a standard 30g full sized jap layout board and 30g is great but i find that since im not very used to hitting backspace on a short key and especially in a different spot than in my hhkb i press it a few too many times

You could try using a proxy service. Have the shipment sent to a US address, and then sent from there to you, though I don't know if it'd still make sense then in terms of price.

Because the stock keycaps on the pok3r aren't good. They're thicc, but the legends are laser-etched, hence will fade with time (quickly so). The PBT caps are s good selling point, but actually nonsensical due to inferior printing method, especially now that you can get a barebones version of the pok3r on WASD.

Though that's hardly my only gripe with the thing.

>Gaymurr aesthetic
Admittedly this is subjective, but most people around here don't like it.

>Non-standard bottom row
One of the nice things about mechs is that you can modify them a whole lot, for example replacing keycaps. Good luck finding anything else than lasered shit ABS that's just as shitty as the stock caps that fits your bottom row.

170 bucks could have gotten you a far better keyboard from a manufacturer that isn't known for horrible software, dead LEDs and a plethora of other issues
