Scratchy & not so great glowy effects
I did not buy these through DK but I do own them so I figured I’d share— they’re a gat ink long pole switch. The sound signature is great if that’s your thing. Out of the box they’re scratchy and the glow in the dark effect is not as good as other switches (nightwalker, so star) BUT this is a much better switch overall than the similar JWK offerings. I like them and will eventually find a keeb for them but they will take work and Gaterons claim that they’re factory lubed is bull, at best. 4/5 because long pole supremacy. Please send me free stuff, Divinikey. I desperately need more keyboards for all these GMK sets sitting in boxes and the hundreds of switches without homes. Love you!
Pretty good, high pitch sound and pretty in the dark. If you like long poles and Gateron Ink seitches this is a good buy.
First off, the negatives: Stock they're not amazing. Their glow effect isn't crazy strong. Positives: When lubed, they are by far the smoothest linear switches I've used. Better than my hand lubed box ink v2's, blue bubblegums and oil kings. I feel like these are by far the best sounding gateron premium linears. Because of their semi transparent nature they transmit light well and the glow effect is neat with transparent keycaps. Also, this isn't unique to these switches anymore, but the new stiff contacts are awesome. Not a single bent pin in the 250ish switches I've purchased.
