Varmilo VA87M + SA Industrial

Of all the key caps I have tested and used with the VA87M, I feel the SA Industrial is the best keys in terms of feel with the keyboard. This is an old setup and I have long sold both the keyboard and the key set.

This Varmilo VA87M was using an aluminum case off taobao and I really felt the difference between aluminum and the original plastic case. The sound was more pronounced and solid and not hollow like when I was using the plastic case with it.

The board also came with Cherry MX Brown switches with felt really great with the SA industrial set.

My MX Brown Poker 3 using SA Industrial.


SA Industrial is uniform R3, PBT key caps from Signature plastics. The key set for me is underrated. It does feel very nice and it feels good to type on. Not sure why there is not much demand for it from the used/aftermarket websites. It did sell out from PMK’s website from what I understand but it should come up for sale from time to time.

SA Industrial

Recently I was able to acquire my first PBT SA profile key set. It is in uniform R3. I believe this came before SA Ice Caps. This is PBT from Signature Plastics.


Unlike most of the SA key sets that I had, this one is quite unique. It does not come with any shine and its matte finish. Really nice to type on these and I am quite liking it. If its true PBT, I believe this should not produce any shine for a very long time.
