I bought my claymore on amazon about a month ago and at the time only the core was available. Now I see vendors selling the entire set, keyboard and numpad but I cannot find any information on purchasing just the num pad to go with my core. I had heard early on that, that would be an option. Anyone know where I can buy one or when? Or if we will evergreen be able to? If not that would be a huge letdown.

I'm pretty sure we were all led to believe we would be able to buy it separately so if that does not become the case, I will be wanting my money back. This keyboard is useless to me without the 10 key add on.

Asus, please provide an update on when this will be available because people are sick of waiting.

I just got my Claymore Core today and was wondering the same thing. The regular Claymore was a bit too expensive for me at the time and was hoping I could get a Numpad at some point in the future.

Hopefully they will tell us some thing soon.

In Holland the first few were lucky and via special discount bought my claymore for the price of a core.

Word from the distributor for Holland is, they should become available the cumming months.
No info on the switch available, red/brown and availability time.
No pre-order status in the shop.
Normal time between pre-order staus and availablility is 3-4weeks.

Gladius2 is available of today, with a 3 week pre-order status.
For the Claymore both versions, it was 4,5 weeks.

According this article...


https://rog.asus.com/articles/gaming-keyboards-gaming-mice/coming-soon-rog-claymore-gaming-keyboard-with-aura-sync/


...the Claymore Bond (keypad) should be sold separately, but I have yet to see it anywhere, and the Claymore, full and 'Core' versions, have been out for some time now. I also bought the 'Core' because that was all that was available at first, and after waiting so long for this keyboard to release, I just went for it, thinking I'd just get the numpad later. This was about 5 months ago and STILL no keypad available for separate purchase.

Why is the M201 Bond only available in Australia? http://www.megabuy.com.au/asus-m201-claymore-bondred-pr764664.html

Will forward this to Bahz, he'll know what's up

I sent an email about 1 month ago asking regarding this, it's still being discussed internally. We have no updates from our end so I assume this retailer is selling this most likely by removing the numpad from the full version and selling it as a part.

It has been more than half a year but the detachable numpad is not yet on sale. What's up ASUS?

Last update I received at the beginning of July that it's still being discussed internally.

I'll follow up with our product managers to see if I can get new updates on this.

Dear Asus, it has been almost a year now since the original ASUS Claymore Core version has been released. I have only purchased it because no Claymore was available with Black Keys, only Claymore Core. But my intention was to purchase a numpad in a month or so. What is going on with Claymore products? Is it discontinued?

I would also be interested in the detachable numpad, any update on this??
Will it ever be available to purchase as a separate item?

I updated this in the Claymore thread, the numpad extension should be available in most countries in Nov. All shipments will leave factory around end of October so should be available at retailers around mid November.

Thank you for the update Bahz, finally some good news! Just wish this had somehow been put out into public knowledge by ASUS a bit better and hadn't ended up with everyone bothering you about it.

I have not seen the numpad available yet. Any update on availability or where to get it Bahz? Would love to get one for my birthday Dec 22nd. :cool:
Thanks!

This is bad... Real bad. I am starting to theorize that the now current M201 is not compatible with the core of yesteryear! How many of you have purchased an inexpensive USB 10 Key to hold you over? I have and it likes to walk away from keyboard. Oh I'll just duck tape it. Boy that's going to look so nice after the glue resin sticks and goop's up this keyboard!

So I looked and the only one I could find was on newegg and it shipped from Australia. I am assuming it wouldn't take over a month for retailer to get them. It is hard enough to find one, and god forbid it is different switches than your core. At this point it is pretty much false advertising. I have only found the bond on newegg/ebay in Red/Blue so if you got a core with brown/black seems we might be SOL.

This whole deal sux. I've given up and purchased a cheap keypad. :(
Merry Christmas to all.

@Bahz can we possibly get another update on this? It is now 2018 and I have not seen a single listing for an m201 that is stateside in the USA.

Add this failure of support and communication to ASUS customers in addition to the numerous others, software and hardware.

- Centurion headset
- AURA
- Swift Monitors
- ROG Claymore

Just to name a few...

All out Asus rig built straight into a custom desk of my own design... A dream machine and I wanted everything perfect so I went heavy on the Asus. Waited for the Claymore release and bought a core so I could get my hands on it with a promise of a numpad to be released shortly. Now it seems Asus lied. I can tolerate a lot of things going wrong such as software / hardware issues, but this is just unjustified neglect on their part. The dang thing is already in existence. All they have to do is make a box and its done.

At this point, to me.... This is Asus spitting in the face of their fan club. I mean the claymore isn't cheap so they are screwing with the people that spend a lot of cash on rigs, and do not even have the courtesy of being honest and forthcoming.

They might have lost a customer that builds 3 highend rigs a year. A drop in the bucket, but word of mouth spreads!

Hi guys,

not sure if any of you are still paying attention to this thread having been so long now but I have finally got my hands on a "Bond" so you may be able to as well. I live in London/UK so not sure if it's any use to you but check out these sellers if you are still keen to get your hands on the numpad. When I ordered my unit there were only x3 in stock at Kikatek.

Part of me will be sad to put away the jerry rigged pill pot USB volume control I had to throw together to make up for the missing roller all of this time. Yeah that's right Asus your volume controls don't work if you want to get the S5 functionality! On the bright side though, kind of makes me laugh that my girlfriend wanted to buy this for my present back in Christmas 2016!!

Good luck to you all. Think Bahz has given up on this one!

Hey thanks for the reply. I google search every week or so and one with browns just started popping up on random resellers. It is silly that not even Newegg got the bond in the US.

Not sure if you guys are still hunting for one of these. But it looks like Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/ROG-Claymore-Bond-Cherry-Red/dp/B078P38PFR/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1519340918&sr=1-2&keywords=rog+claymore), Newegg (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA91J6V80106&cm_re=rog_claymore-_-9SIA91J6V80106-_-Product), and B&H (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=rog%20claymore&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=) will have them up for sale soon. Amazon has them listed as going on sale on March 2nd.

I went with B&H, it's on its way now ordered 3 weeks ago when it was on pre-order status. Stayed away from Next warehouse after reading reviews. Mine will arrive 6th or 7th. Been a long long wait!
