    I don't have a side-button mech yet, but based on my experience with Atmomixani's Nemesis, I'm almost certain to go with their 69 mod.

    If not the 69, then the Electric Angel.

    Either way, the MKB is a nice, hard hitting, mid price mechanical.
    Could you maybe provide a picture? Id love to see how it looks with the stealth cap. So basically with the stealth cap you won't have to worry about getting those adapters right? Does it have like a floating pin or something?

    I think the Natural is just too long. I'd look for the shortest possible side-button mod if I were in your shoes.
    Sanding? Too long? yeah too many no no's. I'll pass on the natural for now. FOR NOW lol.

    Eh don't like the EA heard of its flaws. I'll look into the 69 mod. Thanks Frank!

    I have Atmomixani's 69 in SS, and love it. Hits hard and the button can be on the top or bottom. I run it with the button on top.

    I have played with my friend's Atmizoo Roller, the button is super nice. I love pressing it just for the hell of it. If you can dish out a couple more dollars above your maximum price, I'd say hop on that. I've had the mkb-ts since April, and all it needed was a brass shim for the button, you can find that diy through the mkb-ts thread on this forum. Hits like a beast, and it's quite nice and works well with the Ithaka tank.

    Ive been looking for a mech at the same $150 price point. Its frustrating since there's not a lot out there. Its all cheap clones or low end for $75 and below or they are high end and start at $180. Im still looking although ive decided to suck it up and add some extra money to my budget. One thing that worked for me was a wanted ad in the classifieds. Ive done it twice and gotten several responses both times. I just stated in my ad what I wanted and my budget. Give it a try.

    Here are a few pics of the MKB-TS. 1 with stock cap and 1 with stealth cap. I put an 18650 next to it for size comparison.

    It's longer once you put any battery in there, right? I haven't sanded my center pin, but by the looks of it, even a 18350 would call for at least a little bit of telescoping.

    With your budget around 180$ I'm sure you will find something amazing.
    I'll sign up for the classifieds soon, I just heard its tedious work to sign up. There's like a process or something.

    omg it's so sexy. I do like the original cap though i think it has AFC? but i don't mind using the stealth cap. How is the performance though? What are the pins that come with it? brass? Is it heavy mod?

    No one said it cause it's way too expensive! lol. However, they are in the process of cloning it
