I had a question about springs that have a greater distance between actuation and bottom-out.
I was testing replacement springs for Pro Purples the other day, and nothing really worked for me.
I noticed that Pro Purples use a spring that actuates at 50 G, and bottoms-out at 70 G. That’s a 20 G difference, whereas classic Cherry light tactiles / linears have a 15 G distance.
If I were to get a spring that actuates at 50 and bottoms-out at 70, the closest I can think of is a 72 G Progressive.
That leads to the second issue, which is the type of curve. The Pro Purple actuates fairly reasonably at 50 G, right at the top, and then becomes a linear that approaches 70 G. So would a Progressive spring be a good replacement candidate, or would I want something that is opposite? [The Pro Purple is like a lighter Halo True, if that helps.] People tend to use springs for this switch that bottom-out around 62-67 G mostly.
