Rakk Gears has been the King of local brands when it comes to mechanical keyboards. Rakk introduced its first mechanical keyboard last 2016 and continuously developing its product line.

DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY
The Rakk Kaptan has a smooth, matte surface plastic build with an ergonomic shape design intended for right-handed users. It has the same shape as Zowie’s EC2B model but with an upgraded PMW-3389 sensor. Furthermore, the Rakk Kaptan has the same Huano switches and the left/right mouse clicker is connected to the body as well. The mouse wheel has illumination with defined steps and it is buttery smooth with no wobble at all. In addition, the DPI button is built with interchangeable rubber with different color and profile, whatever suits your taste.
On the bottom part of the mouse, you can see the Rakk Logo with RGB illumination as well as the LED strip on the tail.
Underneath the mouse, there is a polling rate switch near the sensor. The polling rate has 3 levels (125hz, 500hz, 1000hz). Apart from this, we can also see two large rounded-edge PTFE feet here. The Kaptan weighs around 78g, which is lighter than the Zowie EC2 series.
