Default Wireless mechanical keyboards

Does anyone have any suggestions for a wireless mech keyboard? Preferably RF not BT as I'll be using it for gaming. Not interested in corsair or logitech crap.

You may want to roam the Massdrop Mechanical Keyboards section to get some ideas, here for example: https://www.massdrop.com/vote/-Best-...ical-Keyboards

I'd been doing a lot of searching for custom mechanical keyboards, thinking wireless would be what I wanted. But a lot of the reviews of the wireless ones suggested that the wireless wasn't great for gaming. Odd, since I use a wireless mouse just fine, but it could be a Bluetooth issue as opposed to 2.4 GHz for example, or even just the implementation by the manufacturer. But the reviews were enough to make me hesitate.

The other thing that turned me away from wireless in the end was I just couldn't get a good sense of how secure the wireless was on the various wireless options out there. Even Logitech has had security issues in the past, but they have patched them. When you get into a custom option it is tough to know what is in the firmware. So I didn't take the chance in the end.

I did some Googling again, and it is actually a bit of a challenge to meet your specs: blues or browns, TKL, wireless AND non-Bluetooth.
