What Switches Are We Typing On Today?

Currently I’m just typing on my gk61 with lubed optical reds waiting for my future build to come. What switches are you guys typing on and what lube/mods did you do to them?

Today I’m typing on Cookies n’ Cream frankenswitches; that is, Box Creams with Silent Box Brown stems with the light stock lube present on the parts. Currently mounted in a KBD67L and topped with MT3 WoB.

I liked them a bit more with the lighter GMK caps I had on them last week vs the MT3, but still one of my favorites as-is.

I’ve got the C3 Kiwis on my work keyboard, and my favorites, the Boba U4s on my Home Keyboard.

Boba U4Ts leggo!
I tried using Polia stems in Boba housings for a while but wasn’t liking that much tactility tho the sound was very nice.

I put Bobagums in my board yesterday in place of Gat Yellows. My first silent switches, I like the feel, stability, and the shallow activation point. Plus no more crunchy springs.

Alpacas v1, filmed & lubed.
It’s weird but I enjoy them more with qmx clips which give them shorter travel + sound reduction.
Maybe i should consider silent alpacas :thinking:

Do they end up feeling like tactiles?

Those sound surprisingly really nice. A bit of smoothness with a little snap at the end. I can dig it.
