Conclusion│Products for REALFORCE fans

In conclusion, the REALFORCE aluminum wrist rest is definitely a “product for REALFORCE fans.

With a price tag of nearly 8,000 yen, which is quite aggressive for a wrist rest, and the fact that it is not available in the popular 75% / 65% layout sizes, it is not a product for the general public.

However, I believe that Topley’s marketing is correct.

This product will be very satisfying to have for users who already own a REALFORCE.

The combination with R3 in particular is already exceptional.

If you are considering purchasing REALFORCE, I would highly recommend the set.

What is a “palm rest” or “wrist rest” anyway? If you are wondering what is a “palm rest” or “wrist rest”?

I never thought I would make it out of all aluminum….

Quite a quintessence, Mr. Topre.

Only a few enthusiasts are deeply moved by this, and many do not even know how to use “this long, thin thing”.

This long, thin, stick-like shape is called a “palm rest” or “wrist rest,” and refers to a tool designed to “eliminate the difference in level between the keyboard and your hand.

R3 8

The photo shows REALFORCE R3.

Thus, the mechanical keyboard is quite thick.

When typing, it is probably standard practice to start typing from the so-called “home position,” which is to place the left index finger at “F” and the right index finger at “J.” However, the secret to accuracy and speed is to fix the wrist on the desk and type around it to increase finger freedom.

Due to the structure of the human hand, if the wrist is warped = dorsiflexed, tenodesis action occurs and the fingers move in the direction of the fist on their own.

This is a physiological phenomenon caused by the pulling of the long palmaris muscle in the forearm, and is considered a physiological mechanism for grasping objects well.

In typing, it is easier to type if the wrist is lifted but the fingers are not bent too far because of the constant hitting of other keys, but if the wrist is bent back, this tenodesis is triggered, making it difficult to type.

Therefore, I believe that this “hand rest” was developed to avoid bending the wrist against the keyboard as much as possible.

Maybe I’m not wrong, but…

In short, the “palm rest” and “wrist rest” are auxiliary parts that play the role of placing this step-removing device in front of the mechanical keyboard to allow comfortable typing.

Features of the REALFORCE Aluminium Wrist Rest

This palm rest, which by its appearance and name cannot help but give a sense of luxury, was created as one of the accessories of the REALFORCE brand.

Normally, the overwhelming majority of palm rests are made from machined wood, but they have the disadvantage of being easily deteriorated by prolonged typing, often resulting in defects such as discoloration and bending.

Kawamura top R

I thought it was a joke, but typing 8 hours a day really does cause scraping and discoloration…this is serious.

In order to maintain comfortable typing, Topre uses an aluminum alloy that does not easily change over time, and a pillar structure called a pillar is installed inside to increase strength and stability.

As for the foot rubber, we are glad to see that two types, 1mm/3mm, are included in the package to ensure a perfect fit for keyboards other than the R3.

The parts that touch the hand are “sandblasted” and “anodized,” and probably have the finest touch.

And to avoid the “cold! In addition, a wrist rest seat made of nubuck leatherette is also included to prevent the user from getting cold in the winter.

The weight is over 500g.

It is the weight of a beat.

This weight will help ensure stable typing.

In fact, NuPhy’ s acrylic wrist rests are heavier than regular wooden wrist rests and are closer in weight to Real Force.
These days it is exclusively NuPhy because it is so stable typing that heavy seems like justice.

Advantages of the REALFORCE Aluminum Wrist Rest

Actually, I am also a REALFORCE /HHKB user, and I use REALFORCE R3 andHHKB Hybrid Type-S Snow.

As someone who has been captivated by the capacitance non-contact system and its exceptionally luxurious feel, I could not help but buy the full metal palm rest that has just been released.

Let’s take a quick look at the actual use and benefits.

REALFORE Store (Amazon)▷▷▷

High-end looking and perfect for REALFORCE

REALFORCE Wristrest 3

As one would expect from a wrist rest made exclusively for REALFORCE, the match with R3 is excellent.

3mm sponge legs were added to eliminate steps.

Comfortable to the touch, cold to the touch.

REALFORCE Wristrest 1

I had experience with acrylic wrist rests, but this was my first experience with metal wrist rests.

After all, it is a metal, and as such, it is cold.

It is also very comfortable and addictive.

Firm firmness and weight for easy typing

The REALFORCE Wrist Rest weighs over 400g!

It is lighter than the nominal value, but still more than double the weight of a wooden wrist rest.

It doesn’t move at all when I’m typing.

Excellent stability.

Height adjustable

The REALFORCE wrist rest comes with 1mm and 3mm thick sponge legs.

It is nice to be able to adjust the height to match your keyboard.

However, since it is attached with double-sided tape, it is not removable.

Disadvantages of the REALFORCE Aluminum Wrist Rest

We will also explain some of the disadvantages that we have seen after using the system for a while.

The included nubuck ground sticker cannot be removed once it’s applied (if you remove it, it’s unusable).

IMG 20221201 201050 scaled

The nubuck cover included in the package “for those who feel cold,” but double-sided tape is used to attach it.

Therefore, I have the impression that once pasted, it is difficult to reuse.

This is something that seems to divide opinion….

I’d rather use a wooden wrist rest than stick it on.

High price

I think this is the first disadvantage.

Anyway, it is expensive.

Compared to wooden wrist rests, the price is about 2.5 times higher.

Well, it is a product for fans, and it seems that many people would consider this a compromise.

(I know I do.)

Too big for other keyboards such as HHKB

REALFORCE Wristrest 7

This photo shows the HHKB snow on a tenkeyless size REALFORCE wrist rest.

It does not fit at all because the width is too large to look good.

It seems that the REALFORCE aluminum wrist rest is only designed to be used with tenkeyless size keyboards and does not fit compact keyboards.

Summary|Worth buying if you are a REALFORCE fan

This is a review of the REALFORCE aluminum wrist rest.

Those who are spooked by the appeal of this product are probably REALFORCE fans like you and me.

We appreciate this item for the feeling of superiority that only those who actually own REALFORCE can enjoy.

This is one opportunity to purchase the unit together.
