Aqua Kings, but with quality control

I can only speak to the batch I have on-hand of course, but that batch has been very smooth and plenty consistent. The feel is similar to (cherry-picked) Aqua Kings; there's a mild gumminess to the travel. A little extra resistance that makes the return ever so slightly slower. "Chewy" is the best synesthetic word I can find for them. I've been typing on them a few days, and so far I'm finding them to be very pleasant switches. The sound is deep and fairly muted, and the travel is very smooth. Very low-wobble. Other switches I'd say are somewhat similar; aforementioned Aqua Kings as well as Momoka Frogs. I think these are better than Frogs, but they have that "smooth resistance" in common. It seems like it's coming from friction and not the spring, but there's also basically no grain, so they're no less smooth for it. Said another way; "less like ice-skating, more like spreading butter".

Mushy out of the box

-Sound profile out of the box is amazing- super deep. -Travel is very smooth but they feel sluggish to me. When I bottom out keys and release them, it almost feels like they are momentarily “stuck” before the spring pushes the stem back up. Felt better after re-applying with more sparing use of 205g0. -Fully transparent switch housing really makes RGB shine Overall, I still prefer the gateron oil kings, but they are not ideal if RGB is important to you.

65g spring, shiny

dude on you tube said these had 60g springs, so I bought some and they are 65g (other vendors have spring stats), so now I am switching out the springs for 60g's. but not so smooth and lube job seems inconsistent also too much $$, plus no more stickers dk? hm

North Pole switches

Overall pleasant, it’s very muted and smooth however the return feels a bit sluggish. I also had trouble using my switch puller as the switch was too snug. I broke a few from trying to pull them out of my plate.

Sets a new bar for smoothness

These switches, even stock, are the smoothest I’ve ever felt. I’m coming from gateron yellows, and these have the exact same spring weight that I can feel, but are far smoother, even before lubing. These came with a small amount of factory lube applied to the sliders and rails - I’ll be adding more, but it’s not pressing. Super pleased.
