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.
