Lighter spring than reds?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Reds are rated at 45 cN, but I'm looking for about 35 cN. I haven't seen a switch this light, so I'll probably have to replace all the springs by hand.

Does anyone know of any springs this light that might work in cherry switches?

You might be able to contact sprit or zeal at geehack. I bought several different weighted springs from them to get my ideal custom clears made

Well cherry measures their springs differently than the korean springs are measured. Cherry measures at point of actuation, korean springs are measured at full compression so the actual weight of korean springs is lighter in reality.

55g korean springs are a bit lighter than reds.

Here was a little chart by originative comparing their springs to cherry spec.



p.s. Dont buy from originative. You'd save time by throwing your money away, they never ship orders out for the most part.

Buy from either zealpcs or mechanicalkeyboards.com (Zeal is sold out of the lighter springs though and I doubt he will get more in stock for a while since the supplier is really busy)

You might want to chat with MK.com reps since these are new springs and they are probably a bit different from others as far as their measured weight.
