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

Oh gotcha

I’m a linear guy. I really used to like tactile until I got a board with Vintage Blacks.

Zeal’s claim that his V2’s are better than Holy’s is completely false IMO. I have V2 67g and 78g sitting next to some Holy Gsus right now. Holy’s are by far better than V2’s in the length of the bump and overall quality of a housing material that is used. If you like Tactile switches then Holy Gsus/Pandas are still the reigning champion without a doubt. I also have a soft spot for Ergo Clears still…

My favorite Linear at the moment are Tangerines… I have a spring swapped Milky Tangerine and they are really nice. Also Retooled Blacks are nice too… I did a 65g spring swap with mine and they feel great. Im a big fan of anything that has milky gateron housing for linears. I was actually thinking about using my tangerine tops and putting them on my retooled blacks.

I think vintage blacks suck us all into the linear life man, yeah I’m not a huge fan on transparent switch housing I like the sound opaque housings offer more but in the sound tests I’ve heard of zeals v2 switches the housings sound surprisingly good honestly. I know topre will always be my end game tactile switch so I mainly buy linears when I buy mx now but still do enjoy the different tactility mx switches offer every once in a while.

I feel like retooled blacks work really well as a canvas to try out different lubes since it’s pretty hard to screw up retooled blacks.

I also think that is what makes them the vanilla ice cream of switches. They’re pretty plain on their own and the best you can do is spruce it up a bit with some toppings (lube & spring swap), but it will always have this plain essence that you can’t really go wrong with.

Personally I like the NK creams I have quite a bit and are definitely looking forward to picking more up to do more builds with them. I think they accomplish the same feat as retooled blacks but are overall a more fun canvas to work on with lubes and spring swaps.

I also gotta give a shoutout to gat linears for being an all around delight. Hmu with that milky housing on a black bottom for a nice rounded sound.

Modded blacks are just a really clean feeling switch to me if I had to describe them in words. I do want to try some NK creams, how do POM housing sound compared to Nylon housings?


#26

Hey Huey how is the wobble on creams in comparison to retooled blacks anyways? Wobble is one of the few things I compare when comparing linears quality.


#27

Hmm from what I remember on the top of my head they’re about equal? I’d have to take the switches out to refresh my memory; I’ll try to test them out for you tonight or tomorrow.

Much appreciated, I look forward to your reply.
