The problem is that there are three Whites/Clears, and there's no way to know which one anyone is talking about.Read this
But I just checked on Decks site
, and came up with the official value of 2.1oz, which is 60g.
Also, I think they put a heavier switch in the spacebar, probably a gray switch. They do it on the non tactile models, so I'm pretty sure they do it for the tactile ones too.

OK, so after getting a new job, I have decided to reward myself by blowing my paycheck on a shiny (or matte) new keyboard.
My current board is a Chicony KB-5181, with what I think are Monterey SMK switches, but I'm looking to replace it with a Filco "Otaku" Tenkeyless with either Blue or Brown switches.
My question is which switches should I go for?
I'd rather not have the noise of the blues, but I'm worried the browns will be too light after the switches that I currently use, and that the tactile bump ill be too soft.
I don't mind spending more, as long as I know that this keyboard will be properly suited to me.
The keyboard, must, however, be a compact 'board, ideally a standard(ish) layout (I don't mind a large enter key), but hopefully a normal board, just tenkeyless. A sharper tactile bump would be nice, but not essential, as long as its noticeable. Also, if possible, the option of blank keys would be nice.
My main concern is about the switches though. Also, money is not an object here.
I think the best choice for your are Topres. There isn't a single switch I've ever seen that has the sharp tactile bump similar to the SMK montereys or Cherry Blues, but doesn't click. And the bump on the Browns is pretty soft, and will take you quite a while to start to notice after coming off of SMKs.
