group-buy

#1

Hi everyone, this is the GB thread for Linjär. After a successful and quick Interest check, we are happy to move forward to the actual GB!

A big thank you to Janglad for rendering Linjär in a keyboard!
|640x360

Linjär is a linear switch which will be manufactured by Gateron, which aims to be as smooth as a Gateron yellow, offered in Swedish themed housing- and stem colors.
It started out as a meme in the swedish community, and turned in to something much bigger! We are happy to bring this switch to ourselves and to everyone else interested!
It will be limited to 1 production run ONLY.

Switch information for Linjär:
Manufacturer: Gateron
Housing Pantone 301 C, Stem Pantone 116 C (official pantones for the flag of Sweden)
Type: Linear (LINJÄR)
Weight: 65cN bottom out, gold plated spring
Factory lubed: Yes, slightly
Pricing per switch: 0.35USD~ EU, 0.36USD US
For EU, sold in packs of 90 or 120; US will be able to buy in increments of 10
MOQ: 20000 switches

– This switch is non-profit, which is why the price is kept low. The pricing is simply Gaterons quote + import fees and logistics from the proxies. It is a community project, and no one who was part of making this happen from the Swedish community will earn anything from this GB. Switches sold after the 20k mark will result in a few cents profit per switch. This microscopic profit will go to the proxies for assisting us and being kind and offering to do this non-profit as well. With this, we feel we are true to the non-profit spirit. –

I'm bored and I enjoy discussing with the community so let's discuss about switches

Very excited for this GB! Thanks for opening your GB up to your friends across the pond!

Cheers :beers:


#3

Do we know what kind of plastic it will be? Will it be more similar to the black Gateron housings or the material used for the milky Gateron housings? Just wondering because the black vs. milky housings differ in smoothness and sound signature.


#4

Nylon 66 since we wanted better sound.


#5

Are new Gaterons with different colored parts going to be the new trend?


#6

They already are a trend


#7

I really hope this trend is here to stay because I am loving it (I’m in for 90)


#8

Very excited about this group buy. I don’t really have a use for these switches, but i’m in for a pack of 120 anyway.


#9

Hi, update regarding this GB.

The switches have already reached MOQ, so they will be made for sure! We’re really happy for the support, thanks a lot!


#10

Ha. True indeed.

I was trying out different springs with my tangerines and I thoght, “man these feel great! Wait, what do they feel like next to stock Gateron blacks?”

Doh! I couldn’t tell them apart. We are silly collectors, but we already knew that

Hey! My Linjär samples showed up today!
Bad photo from basement like conditions:

IMO they look a lot better in person. The pictures I’ve seen (including mine obviously) looks a lot brighter. However the blue is a little off in my opinion, but still good enough.

Sound test recorded with my phone, all switches slightly lubed with 204g0: https://soundcloud.com/ffoms/linjarsound
-They feel really good and sound really good, even better than I expected. (even though you can’t really hear it on the sound test)
-I would say that they are equally smooth to my r9-10 tealios stock and lubed.
-Spring feels the same as gateron yellow to me.
-About the same amount of wobble as a gateron yellow.

Ideally I’d prefer them to be darker as well, but I don’t think it is worth to wait 11 weeks to MAYBE have more a more accurate blue.

Update: Switches have been sent to proxies from Gateron and should soon be on their way to the purchasers! :slight_smile:
