I know the Creams are a bit of a polarizing switch. Overhyped, no doubt, but polarizing also. Most people acknowledge that they’re kind of scratchy, so I was nervous when buying them but I felt like I needed to own Creams at some point, so I went for it.
Ok I know I might sound crazy, but I think I like the scratchiness of stock creams. The two linear boards I have going right now are these creams and 62g Banana Splits (factory lubed). I feel like the scratchiness of the creams almost helps me type better because it gives it more of a tactility, whereas the smoothness of the splits makes it feel like I’m typing on nothing at all.
I am definitely going to lube these after a few months of break in, since the spring noise is kind of noticeable. But does anyone else actually find the scratch to be actually uniquely pleasant?
