Novelkeys cream switches

Were the cream switches revised to get rid of the friction from the POM on POM contact?

If you’re talking about how if you push down at an angle, it kind of ‘studders’ instead of going down smoothly, then no, that has not been fixed. I’ve got a set of creams in my singa that I lubed with 205g0 and I can easily reproduce that. During normal typing, it’s a complete non-issue though.

As a person who loves 205g0 and has V2 Creams, is the lube still holding up well?

So far so good! I’ve been using them for a couple months now and they’re still quite smooth. I’ve got several linear boards and the creams are probably my favorite. I’m not sure if I’d say they’re the smoothest, but I love the sound they make :slight_smile:

Yeah the creams are definitively in my next keyboard build!

Oof, that’s very promising. Thanks for letting me know! I had heard previous concerns about the lube staying on the switch properly due to the apparent self-lubricating nature of the POM housing.
