Durock Koala Tactile Switches feature similar housing materials to their line of linear switches: polycarbonate top housing, nylon bottom, POM stem (with tactile bump). This switch is intended for users looking for a "stepped" tactile feel, opposed to the "rounded" tactility from Holy Pandas.

Very impressive switch that comes prelubed. The sound and feel is pretty decent stock. After I lubed them with 205g0 (avoiding the leg of the stem), and filmed them with Durock film. They are now one of my favorite switches to type on. The tactility of these switches are great, and all the leaf ping is unnoticeable. And as always, Divinikey shipping was fast and the packing was good.
Decent switches with some good tactility but has some serious leaf spring that is very noticeable. Maybe I got a bad batch, but that is my experience with them. Also, just stick with the pre-lube they apply. I tried lubing the switches myself (avoiding lubing the steam) with 205g0 but it completely ruined the tactility compared to these switches stock.
It's totally a matter of personal preference but if what you're looking for is a super tactile, cheap switch this is a good option.
Bought these in 62g and they feel great. Pretty thocky and very affordable compared to Holy Pandas. Not a single pin was bent when they came in, and Divinikey was super helpful when I made a mistake on my order. Ordered from them again a week later, definitely recommend Koala switches and Divinikey.
These exceeded my expectations coming from linear switches. they have a unique soft tactile bump and the sound profile after lubing is super thocky. Really good switch for the price. Also if I did it again I would probably film some of the switches but either way these are fantastic!
