Cheap generic membrane keyboards and replacing them when they wear out. That's what the pros do. They also like to get 2 keyboards of different colors and replace frequently used keys.

The "pros" also use other crap quality headsets, mice, etc. Just because their sponsor gives them the stuff doesn't mean that is what's best to use.

That being said I agree with the others. There's really no best or must have switch for SC unless you double tap, then you likely wouldn't want MX blues.

I have seen alot of Asians and Europeans use the Raptor K1, Custom Cherry and steelseries 7g in pro competition.


this is the Custom Cherry it's a G80-1863HUMUS-2 wNv special edition. wNv is a Chinese Counter-Strike clan. it has double shot keycaps, Cherry MX Brown switches, full rollover and 2 USB ports.

they are sold in Asia and not cheap. it would cost additional $50 just to have it shipped to North America.
