F1 722 / SKCL Green / Zenith TurboSport
Case: Geonworks F1 722 in Black
Switches: SKCL Green Alps, outstanding quality, very smooth
Plate: 1.2mm Delrin (POM)
Keycaps: Zenith TurboSport 386 filled in with caps from a Zenith 163-73 and sporting a Zenith ZWL-183-92 EnterThe Geon F1 has long been a popular case, due to its flexible and effective gasket mounting system. It is a particularly good option for Alps switches, due to its internal weight system. These weights can be ommitted to greatly increase the internal case volume that Alps switches need to sound their best.
In this particular build, the internal weight nearest the space bar was installed to maintain the ideal sound for that switch, while the other 5 were all ommitted. The result is a deep, rich sounding keyboard with an clean and punchy space bar.
