As a fan of inks like everyone else in the hobby, while living in a dusty environment, made these and easy pick-up for me. I've also tried Akko's new Jelly switches and Frog V3s as far as "box" type stems go. I noticed ZERO difference between those budget offerings in sound and feel using the same springs, and on top of that these inks come in at 75c a switch.
Fantastic stock switch
The title says it all. The new Box Inks are incredibly smooth out of the box and there’s noticeably less stem wobble. I would definitely recommend buying these!
These box inks are a gamechanger. Better than the originals Inks in every way. Incredibly smooth feel, satisfying thock, and they even help with imperfect rattle/tick on stabilized keys I found. Probably my new go-to switches for future builds.
These are the gaterons to own
Stock out of the box these switches are smooth and despite getting the heavier blacks they feel effortless to actuate. They have a similar thock to other long poles and can accommodate cherry caps on a north facing board. I personally only care about the typing feel and experience and these mark those check boxes with flying colors stock. I dont intend on lubing. Of all the gateron switches I've tried, these have been the best out of box experience.
Best switches I own at the moment. After using them for a couple days and breaking them in after lubing, I can say this confidently.
