Zeal making plate mounted stabilizers

This will be a nice option. This was posted on zeal’s instagram story.


These would probably sell good on drop. :thinking:

Yay. I’m the rare bird that likes plate mount stabs.


This is really a great decision on Zeal’s part, as I don’t think the market for plate-mount stabs is going to shrink any time soon and it is significantly larger right now than it was when Zeal decided to get into stab design. It’s just a huge mostly-untapped market right now and it’s incredible it was left wide open for as long as it has been.

I mean, there’s like: Cherry which are alright and a bunch of cheapo options varying from bad to alright right now? Or am I missing something?

I believe there are cheap diy kits with Gateron plate stabilizers, but from what I’ve heard they are pretty bad.

This is great. I’ve had good luck with some plate mount stabilizers and honestly don’t see what’s so bad about them. This will be a nice upgrade.

Cherry ones have worked fine for me. Just need a lot of dielectric grease where the wires go in as usual. Sometimes the rattle comes from a loose fit of the clip in base to the plate. A layer of tape can shore that up. If anything, this will be a better solution for people who wouldn’t normally lube their stabilizers.

I guess for those with OEMs/plate mounted builds who really want the best they can get will have a better option available to them.


Pre lubed for the noobs? :wink:
