Very, very few people have problem with double tapping or spamming a key, like Blue for example. I've yet to come across someone who has a double tap or spamming issue with their mechanical keyboard. A fast touch typist may encounter this issue with Blues as he/she may no lift his/her fingers off the keys, and because Blue has a reset point above its actuation point, the typist may not have let the key lift past its reset point before pressing down on it again.......I think. So far, I've come across no gamer or typist who have such issue.....it's acknowledged to exist, but I believe it's isolated to a few only. At least, that's what I've gleaned from reading various posts on this subject...someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Meh...I'm not gonna say anything about moderators. Already shared my opinion many times on them, but they've been better recently than they were in 2012.

That said, I too wear boots..either platformed boots or something more goth like (usually heeled boots). I go to goth clubs a few times a year and wear corsets, gothic/lolita outfits and if you do it right and order from Germany, yes, they are expensive, but that's the lifestyle cost. I pay for top quality outfits and they last me years.

I can wear all that and still be cute and wear heels. It's a matter of balance.

Okay, time for you to stop talking about corsets and shoes.

It's making me remember you're a girl on the internet and therefore don't exist, lol.

At 85 APM It just breaks the clicky noise so you hear a loud CLACK instead of a clicky. Its just that the key will actuate back up but the little clicker ins't able to follow so it breaks the "clicky" rythem action of the. but thats if you repeat click the key over and over.

If you swtich between keys which most people whom are gaming will do anyways, then i dont see an issue.

Perhapse ill do a video later of playing Shyvana/Elise/Ahri(since i dont play SC2 anymore.) and the sound of the keyboard.

It's also a change since getting the same switch defeats the purpose of having multiple keyboards in my mind. I should use a keyboard for a certain need. This is my keyboard I go to if I want to press the switch easier. This is the keyboard I want to use if I want to put more force on the key. This is the keyboard I want to use if it fits this layout scheme going on in my room or this is the keyboard I want to use if I bring it somewhere so it stands out. You know..different keyboards for different scenarios.

[Edit]

LOL, Just realized I like my keyboards like I like my shoes, useful for different scenarios and events!
Same here ... I feel the same too here, if i buy something the second time i make sure i use it in different scenarios ... I agree with you on the greens. I absolutely love greens

Alright. So. I'm tired of researching switch types and confusing myself repeatedly. Over the past several months I've convinced myself several different times that I've found the right switch to have in my first mech keyboard only to realize I was a retard.

At first I was convinced that blacks were the way to go.
Later on I moved to reds to avoid the fatigue I'd likely get from the heavy weight of blacks.
Decided since then that reds would be entirely too light soooo...
I moved onto browns. Thinking that with a peak force being 10g higher than the reds, it'd work for me. The tactility would be a certain plus as well. Well now that I've read more about browns I've learned that the tactility is nearly nonexistant. The "grain of sand" description definitely turned me away from them.
So for a short while I focused on blues. I love the idea of having a very precise tactile response telling me when the key has activated. The sound is highly appealing as well although a little quieter would be appreciated. But upon remembering that the deactivation point is well above the activation point on blues and reading that people have a problem "double tapping" blues, that threw them out the window for me as well.

Somewhere in there, Topre was entertained. As was buckling spring. Topre was thrown out because of the price and lack of, IMO, nice looking boards beyond the HHKB and the Type Heaven. Also, customizability is pretty slim in the keycaps department. Buckling spring was thrown out because of the similar lack of customizability and the lack of modern boards outside of Unicomp's.

This brings us to present day. I'm stuck in limbo. I know a highly tactile switch is something I'm interested in. Linear switches are a definite "no go."

Based on my thoughts on the various switches I mentioned, what switch would you guys suggest me look into?

I believe some people have issues with double-tapping initially because the actuation point is slightly below the click on MX Blues, but it's not necessarily "well above", it's around 0.5mm above.

I'd suggest MX Blues, the double-tapping issue isn't that major and if you don't like heavy switches then MX Greens and MX Whites will be too heavy and MX Clears are hard to find at the moment.

Yeah, can you not do that? Not interested in watching the thread turn into a giant argument.

Sorry, I meant on production boards, some of the boards known for MX Clears like the WASD V2 (including CODE edition) and the Deck aren't using MX Clears for now.
