I have yet to fully appreciate linear switches but I’m finding them useful on modifiers when the combination of switch, plate, case, and mounting style results in annoyingly loud modifiers.
For example, mods on Holy Panda + POM plate + Lambo 60% case (tray-mount, WTF acoustics, ) combo I was trying to resuscitate over the weekend was way too loud. Replacing Holy Pandas on modifiers (Tab and Backspace too) with Gateron Yellow made them sound very pleasant. Simpler linear feel is starting to grow on me too. I had 205g0 on them Gat. Yellow for buttery feel but resulting feel was slothy so I wiped the lube off to get some snappys back.
When I get addicted enough to the linear feel, I’ll order some Gateron Black Inks and lube them with 3203 to see what off-the-counter best linear today should feel like.
