What is the thocciest and cleanest sounding switch possible, in theory?
First, this is of course fully up to preference and will be different for different people.
Second, thoccieness is heavily based on the rest of the board, like keycap profile, keycap material, case material, plate flex, plate material, case hollowness, weight, case foam, mounting style, etc., so this will simply be “what switch is the thocciest and cleanest COMPARED to any other switch on the exact same board in the exact same spot”
Tactiles generally have more room for thoccieness than linears, but getting them to sound clean and crisp would be more difficult. That is why I think a good linear would be the way to go for this. Clickies and silents are out of course.
By thoccieness, I mean a deep and large sound with little high end.
By clean, I mean no scratch or ping, at all, if possible.
Pom is quite thoccy but pom on pom has a history of scratchiness. Elongated stems give quite a bot of clack, but if it is low enough, it could sound thoccy.
The goal is to think of some new switches, not just to point at existing switches.
For lube, 205g0 or thicker would be the best bet.
What do you think?
