QUALITY ASSURANCE:

All Group Buy units will come A-Stock (see below).  Extras will be purchased to ensure this. 

A-Stock is qualified by the following:

  • No scratches or defects on any outward face of the board.
  • There may be small scratches marks or ano defects on internal faces of the board.
  • There may be machining marks on internal faces of the board. 

I have received 10 units of prototypes and I am quite pleased at how they turned out. I am confident that I can deliver a 50 unit run with the same top-tier quality by utilizing extras for QC. 

 

PROTOTYPE CHANGES: 

There are two minor cosmetic differences between this round of protos and the final product that you will be ordering.  Renders of these changes have been added below. 

  • The area around the USB C port has been brought in and rounded slightly more than it's predecessor.
  • The footprints for the bump-ons have been widened/changed to support the custom injection molded bump-ons that will be provided with the final product.

DESIGN INSPIRATION:

The Plume 65 clearly draws a lot of inspiration from the TGR 910.  A picture of a Polycarbonate 910 with Muted was the board that lured me into the hobby. I saw a picture of one while browsing the web and I was immediately captivated by elegance and simplicity.  I have remained quite a fan over the years and I have brought that classic top right blocker design to my board while also giving it a bit of a more modern feel with the 7U WKL 65% layout that I love so much.  My goal for the design from the beginning was to create a board that used simple clean lines that give a “WOW” factor while still holding a minimalist feel.  I hope you enjoy.
