Amazing and smooth!

Really surprised by how smooth the switch at stock. I'm enjoying the light springs too and how comfortable it is when typing. I came from Durock Poms and sound is a bit different. It's a little high pitch but I'm not bothered by it.

Slide into your bottom housing smoother than you slid into her DMs. Slide like the penguin in Fight Club. So smooth. So thock. Seven switches down. Approximately ten thousand left to try. (Lubed with 205g0, obvs)

Great in stock form!

If you don't want to lube your switches, these are one of the switches I would recommend. Silky smooth out of the bag with minimal to no spring crunch. The sound profile in stock form is very unique. It's high pitched with sort of a hollow quality to it. The sound signature changed drastically after lubing though, more so than any other switch I've lubed. They now have a significantly deeper tone with a fuller sound. I used 205g0 and Trybosis 3204 on different switches for testing and they both worked really well.

The smoothest stock switch out there

If you're too lazy spending hours on lubing/filming switches, this is the switch for you. Comes ready to go out of the box. The housing is tight enough to not use films but if you really want to add them for a more secure stem I suggest durock films because they are 0.15mm thick compared to deskeys which are 0.2mm. Beware that the spring (50g actuation, 60g bottom out) might feel too light for some people that are used to heavier ones. Its really easy to press down but the upstrokes felt slow. This led to a slower typing experience so I opted to buy some multistage 63.5g springs to fix this and now its perfect, for me at least. Overall, this switch is one of the best to come out recently being silky smooth to type on and the fairly cheap price. Only downside for me personally was the light spring which was fixed easily by getting heavier ones.

Deserves the Hype

I did not buy these switches off of Divinikey but I would still like to do a review for them. These are great switches and I don't really have much to say about them besides you probably won't be disappointed in them even in their stock form. I would say to still lube them as any switch needs lube but I lubed mine with Krytox 205g0 and Krytox GPL 105 for the springs. TLDR; -Poppy -Smooth -Really good -Still has Gateron North and South Wobble -Total (19/20) - Endgame Sound (5/5) I think the sound of these switches are one of my favorite. It has a poppy sound on any keyboard that I put it on making it a great all rounder that should please most people who use it. Not much else to say. Feel (5/5) Definitely has the feeling of a premium switch. Stock you can still feel the stick and slip feel of POM on POM material but once lubed with Krytox 205g0, this problem goes completely away I cannot find any of my switches with that feeling. It feels imo just as smooth as tangerine switches but then again, I did use these switches for a little bit stock before lubing which might have broken in the switch even more even with the polished stem but it is still smooth regardless. Wobble (4/5) Gateron still has the North and South wobble problem with these switches as they do with all of their switches. These by far have the least amount of it from a "do I notice it" point of view. Even with films these switches aren't perfect and I feel that It's a must to do so. Price (5/5) Definitely worth the price when comparing it to other similarly priced switches. Total (19/20) - Endgame
