I didn’t see this on MechGroupBuys yet so I thought I’d share.
From 43 Studio comes the second iteration of the Rara switch, one of the first JWK tactile switches to hit the Western market! First ran on Drop at the start of the year, this run will be entrusted to ourselves as well as a number of vendors worldwide that we’ve reached out to! One of the major improvements over the previous version is the reduction of housing wobble, which is prevalent in JWK switches. The housing material has changed slightly, with adding a polycarbonate top instead of nylon for a smoother experience. It comes stock with ThicThock DL springs, as well as pre-filmed!
To help answer some potentially common questions, I will list my experiences with the V1 Rara switches that I have. They are a medium-tactile switch , in the realm of Ergo Clears and Kiwis with a b-bump that begins shortly after the initial keystroke. They are quieter on the upstroke than other tactiles that they’re compared to, such as T1s and Koalas, though with the change to a PC top it will most likely be a bit clackier. I personally really enjoy them, and think you will too!
