Isn't clear a heavy tactile, not grey? Grey is super heavy.

Does grey have a large bump like on a clear or a small one like on a brown? it has not much of a click.

Clears are a medium stiff switch with a large tactile bump, Greys are a heavier tactile switch. Dark Greys are a heavy linear switch.

Greys and Clears should have the same sized bump, just Greys have a heavier spring. A Grey will not click because it does not have a slider like Greens, Blues, and Whites.

Is this gonna damage one of the switches itself? It's giving the switch a bit of sideways force, but not too much though. (i've been doing this for at least 7-8 months now)

I know it ruins my keycaps, but i dont really care about that.

Keycool is about a year old now, still rocking nicely and feeling as good as the day when i got it.

I put those 3 down because they all have the 80g weight, there are other ones that could be included.

As for the size of the bump, it's more akin to a Clear bump than a Brown, you can see why in one of Ripster's albums (image 17/27) here.

Browns just look crappy in comparison. They're a great idea on paper (subtle bump), but I'd think Clears with Brown springs or Browns with Clear springs would feel better for that same role. Enough OOMPH for good feedback, but still relatively quiet. I have never used them, so take this with grain or two or million of salt. Still better than rubber domes though.

Brown sliders don't have enough of a bump to have any heavier of a spring. Ergo clears sound pretty good, though.

Clears with Brown springs would just be ergo clears. They kind of suck (my own opinion) unless lubed with Krytox. Even then I don't care for them. Lubed Clears with 65-67g springs are quite nice though. They still have a nice bump, are lighter than stock Clears, and don't have any sticking on the return like lighter Clears can have.

Browns with Clear springs would cover up most of the tactile bump on Browns and probably make them feel even worse. I liked Browns at first, but now I'd probably take a good rubber dome or scissor switch over Browns.

The first one you mentioned are called Ergo Clears and are fairly popular among keyboard enthusiasts. thumb.gif

I'm looking forward to getting another board.
post #14479 of 36843
My keyboard has developed a double tap on certain keys. X, O, P, ., A to name some. Shame because I bought this thing when it first came out and now quite a bit of people are complaining of this issue. Really liked this board as well.

Thinking of bending over for a Ducky Shine 3 while I have money. Worth it? Better than the Shine 2 aside from the lighting improvements? Will last longer than a year unlike this one? Gonna go with the MX blues as well.

Figured I'd post here because I pretty much know what I'm looking for. Just I'd like some input before dumping another 150 dollars on a board.

I did find the QF rapid and it's $5 cheaper than everywhere else online so I think that is what I'm going to go with tomorrow. Plus the return policy is 30 days though disti. So the CM QF rapid is going to be my first Mechy, anyone have any objections or is that a safe first choice?
