Scratchy stock, but nice!
Very scratchy stock, but I’m sure the scratch can be reduced greatly with break in and lubrication. Though they aren’t for me, the stems will surely be useful for frankenswitches!
While they sound soothing, they aren't as smooth as you'd expect.
These have a very specific sound that makes them thick and feel like they have volume (best way I can describe it). Although, compared to other linear switches, I'd expect them to be much smoother for the price. Even with lube, these are less smooth than Gat Yellows, Durock L7, and Durock POMS. Unless you need the specific sounds, I'd recommend Durock POMS since they're relatively similar in price and are by far the smoothest switches I've ever felt.
Good, but 1 switch missing
Great switch when broken in and lubed.
Creams are some of the very few switches that I just can never have enough of! Great sound that never gets old.
Decent Switch for The Price
I bought some of these a few days ago, they sounded and felt terrible out of the box. But after you lube them I will admit they sound a lot better. I would recommend making a frankinswitch like the creamsicles or the criwis. ( The creamsicle being a mix of a tangie and a NK cream, While the kriwis being a mix of the kiwis and the NK creams.) Oncee made into a frankinswitch the difference is extreme, there is no more scratch and it has a harsh bottom out in the kiwi housing while giving out a nice sound which I like a lot. There is a huge downside though. The simple fact that the switch has recieved a new stem, I don't believe the batch I got has the new stem but the new stem will not be compatible with a lot of housings. Although these switches are one of my favorite linears second to the tangies, the ink blacks, and the tealios, I would have to say that these are probably one of the worst sounding linear switches out of the box. After lube they do sound better but the scratch is still there, other switches around the same price like the ink blacks outshine this switch. I would say if your not making a frankinswitch just got with the ink blacks.
