High quality but a little weird
These are well-made switches; they're smooth and very stable. They bottom-out on a long pole and make that long pole sound, except the subsequent top-out is silenced. It's a little disorienting at first; you get a positive confirmation of bottom-out, but basically no feedback after that. Instead of "clackity-clackity", it's just "clack clack". I take off one star because I think the unorthodox configuration doesn't really have wide appeal, but if this sounds like something you might enjoy, these are a well-executed take on the idea, aside from being the first stock example I'm aware of.
interesting linear switch
pretty smooth stock, cool to see jwick innovating with this very interesting stem so the switch doesn't have an audible top out. i wish it was standard pole length but oh well! i wish the listing mentioned that this switch doesnt fit a standard kailh switch opener so i currently am unable to modify this switch - i would like to put heavier springs on them but can't.
These were a perfect replacement for a board of mine with plate ping issues. They have a very satisfying bottom out sound and are quite easy on my digits. I also got my highest monkeytype score on them!
New favourite Keys
Best feeling keys I've had so far. The action is smooth, key wobble is minimal, and the sound is solid.
These have become one of my favorite switches. Silencing just the upstroke is genius. Usually I go for silent switches but these are quiet enough that the sound comes off as pleasant background noise and feel much better than normal silent linears. I swapped 78g progressive springs into them to make the bottom out more muted. The smoothness of these switches feel like gliding ice cubes. I didn’t have any issues undoing the latches with a generic kailh-style/outemu switch opener.
