C3 stabs

Anyone know anything about these? I just came across a post about them on a different site and it’s the first time I’ve heard about them.

They certainly look nice. Might grab some for an upcoming build and hope they’re alright.

Same, I went ahead and ordered some orange ones to match some tangerine switches I’ve had sitting around forever and I’m going to hope they don’t suck.

Bought myself some purple ones, so I guess we’ll both find out! Well, I will sometime next year when my M0llY ships :joy:

Its nice to see someone make some changes/possible improvements to the OG design while not copying things that are out there already.

You can safely wait and read reviews and then sell them if they’re bad haha

ip on Discord pointed out that, other than the wire clip, they look identical to the new GMK stab housings, which are apparently pretty bad. I ordered a few packs regardless, hopefully they don’t use the new dimensions.

They sound okay, which is cool.

:sunglasses:

I just picked up a few sets

Darn, I have two sets of GMK stabs left. Hopefully other vendors will carry these.

For clarity’s sake, here’s the comparison of C3 vs GMK stabs:

The plastic on the C3 stabs is noticeably different, I have to wonder if it’s perhaps POM. and it’s POM according to the page. Either way, they seem to be a lot rounder, and are probably smoother and slipperier. I’m curious as to how the bottom molding affects the stab, considering it’s so different from GMK.

The product page says they are made of POM - i’m at least intrigued by this.

Ordered two 60/80% sets (~USD $24 including shipping to US) for use with Polaris PCBs. Hotswap PCBs are a lot easier to fix when stab wire pops out but Polaris PCBs are not hotswap so C3 stabs with extra protection against wire popping out should be useful.

Thanks for the heads up! Think I’m going to jump on the buy 4 get free shipping deal since I only got like 3 or 4 sets of og GMK screw in stabs left & 2 or 3 of them are with 6.25u spacebar stabs so they’ll probably sit till I come across a project that demands them.

Bought a set in each color :stuck_out_tongue:

Nice, I’m still deciding what colors I want to get. I do really dig that they decided to makes these in some colors, but I wish they had black too.
