Not sure why that would necessarily matter what age they were?

well were they young teenagers, or some middle age man? yes it definitely matters when it comes to buying something because of its price, use, construction, or fads.

They were probably in their 20s-30s. Not sure how that would relate to yourself, though.

I just explained scissor switches vs. mechanical switches, and pointed them toward a Steelseries 7G that had keys pulled off, pointing out that those black switches were linear vs. the tactile blues in the Blackwidow, and how mechanical switches were just generally better than scissor switches.

Hooray for long and convoluted sentences.

Believe it or not, the Lycosa just has regular rubber domes.

It's worse than I thought, then. JK. Oh well, guess I just assumed from the low-profile keys. My bad turned into good?

They are. The scissors are needed because the dome is too small to pop the keycap up by itself.
