I’m thinking about building myself a TKC1800 with Kailh BOX clickies, but I’m not sure which switch I should be using. After I gave a spare Jade a good amount of lube on the click bar, I realized it sounded and felt great. But I’m also quite interested in the China Yellows. Does anyone have any, and any impressions of them? Or a lineup of all of the Kailh clickies, for that matter?
Whites feel too light for me. Jades just a tad too stiff (click bar slightly too restrictive at the top). Pinks are my preference, and they sound better. Lower pitched click for some reason.
Here is a video I found on YouTube regarding the topic.
Looking at information on NovelKeys – the two China Style switches are “best guess” based off of Kailh’s graphs
|Spring||Thin Clickbar||Medium Clickbar||Thick Clickbar|
|Medium||Box White||Box Pink||Box Jade|
|Box Glazed Green||Box Noble Yellow|
|Heavy||Box Pale Blue||Box Navy|
