The POM in palm is the bomb hence it's POMb
People like to talk about how Gateron Ink Black is an endgame linear switch, but there are several reasons I like Durock POMs over them... -cheaper -smoother after lube -more consistently smooth -don't require film -pole bottom out feels crisp and satisfying (personal preference) -don't require spring swap (personal preference) There are 2 things that stand out with the Gateron Ink Black though... -Deeper sound -Better LED performance with its transparent housing If you factor in cost of TX film + Durock springs then the Ink Black would go up to $0.90/switch The Durock POM is very much an endgame linear switch in my opinion and it will be the only linear switch I buy unless I want something silenced in which case there's the Durock Silent linear Dolphin which I am a big fan of.
I have tried tangies, banana splits, pro berries, ink yellows, gat blacks with uhmwpe stems + 65g springs, fff, oa and snowwhites. These are my favorites so far. Very nice tolerances. The definitely need lube to remove the ping and a bit of scratch. Once lubed (optionally filmed) they are next level switches. Spring weight feels perfect and no wobble. The sound is nice clack/thock(whatever floats your boat). Bought first batch of 130. Ordered 140 more for my upcoming builds.
smoothest switch i own
these switches are so smooth and really remind me of a mix of nk silks and creams mixed together. the feel of silks and the sound of creams. there is absolutely no wobble and no scratching at all. these switches are so smooth are so worth the price. super underrated.
best switches in the world
I have not tried them but I know these are the best switches
Love these, used them in my portico for the mods.
