I bought some of these a few days ago, they sounded and felt terrible out of the box. But after you lube them I will admit they sound a lot better. I would recommend making a frankinswitch like the creamsicles or the criwis. ( The creamsicle being a mix of a tangie and a NK cream, While the kriwis being a mix of the kiwis and the NK creams.) Oncee made into a frankinswitch the difference is extreme, there is no more scratch and it has a harsh bottom out in the kiwi housing while giving out a nice sound which I like a lot. There is a huge downside though. The simple fact that the switch has recieved a new stem, I don't believe the batch I got has the new stem but the new stem will not be compatible with a lot of housings. Although these switches are one of my favorite linears second to the tangies, the ink blacks, and the tealios, I would have to say that these are probably one of the worst sounding linear switches out of the box. After lube they do sound better but the scratch is still there, other switches around the same price like the ink blacks outshine this switch. I would say if your not making a frankinswitch just got with the ink blacks.
It ids a great switch over all it needs! Lubing but if you do that and break them in than they are really good. Would recommend
scratchy stock, unique bottom out sound with a sort of pop sound the ones I received are definitely far lighter (15-20g) than the 70g bottom out weight it's supposed to have though...
After about a week of use, I’ve noticed that these switches are very scratchy even after lining them… it’s something very minor but to others, it could make or break your deduction. Otherwise, these switches are very smooth and I’m happy about them
