Smooth=/=linear, reds and blacks are linear but imo the modern ones feel really scratchy after trying Topre. Topre feels as smooth as can be, and the feel is similar to pressing a key on the piano except you don't get the thock sound on the piano and Topre is a bit more tactile. Some say the closest comparison to Topre is lubed ergo clears but others say that they feel completely different.

I personally liked mx browns on my QFR. I feel they were the best compromise between good typing + gaming. I ended up with blues because of the Rosewill having a numberpad otherwise I would probably prefer browns. I can't comment on reds, greens, or clears but browns/blacks/blue's I have used.

I thought I had read something saying Greens had a more pronounced bump in the plastic itself. Apparently not.

I assume that Jailhouse Blues glue the freely-moving part of the plastic that actuates the switch to the stem? I'm not sure if the effort would be worth, but Blues are cheap (and apparently the most popular switch) so it's sort of okay to screw up horribly. Do they make something like Ergo Clears or regular Clears?

And finally, how can something be both tactile and smooth? Those don't seem to go together. Clears are tactile, Reds are linear, and apparently Browns feel like mushy Reds or like the poor man's Clear and are somewhere in the middle.

JHB are a work in progress experiment.

Glue is not recomended since it would be hard to glue them all at the right height, and the possibility of the glue not holding.
Currently: the best solution so far is to use o-rings, cut them, and place them between the stem and the slider.

Clears are a stock MX switch, Ergo Clears are Clears with lighter springs from mx blue,red, or brown as they all use the same 45g spring.

feel is pretty subjective though, i assume by smooth and tactile it does not have the 'hang' from the slider that blues/greens have.

Bad phrasing. I meant do JHBs have a feel similar to Ergo Clears or stock Clears? I feel what you mean by the hang. It's not difficult at all to overcome, but it's just noticeable with a soft press.

more of a stock clear from what i've heard ( not used ergo ) since the slider is now fixed the spring ( even though its light ) is compressed more therefore requires more force to actuate.

It's posts like these that make me want to hang onto my QFR. Nice work. How did you paint the frame? Professionally done?

You can paint the case yourself pretty easily. I'm assuming he's going to be participating in the QFR Case contest, there's some pretty cool incentives to mod your QFR case there.
