    On their Facebook they said:
    we can screw V60 plate on 4 holes of Poker2/Pure Pro case. Basicly , V60 can fit in Poker 2 case. But V60 has 6 dip switch , Poker 2 only has 4 dip switch. If the back side hole space not enough , the plate touch , not balance.
Poker 2 can not fit in V60 case. Because V60 case is a little smaller than Poker 2.
