There's no way you actually gave a Topre a chance if you didn't even bring it home.
"If you invented the perfect switch, would you let others get in and profit from your glory? I didn't think so.
No, you'd say, "Here, have some of these other crappy switches. We call them MX."
By the way, Topre is technically mechanical. Hybrid capacitive switch.
But imo, I really don't to have anything to do with stock MX switches anymore. I just got my Model M in and I like it better than blues and greens, and Topre is much smoother and more tactile than browns, reds and blacks. Only spring swaps and lube make MX feel decent.
