well im asking because im playing games 10~18hours a day at this point, and am ALWAYS on my computer every waking hour, so im going to be glued to that buckling spring and im curious as to how harsh it will be fore those first few weeks. And a buckling spring is between he MX blues and MX Greens so im just trying to formulate an idea of how much more my hands will have to develope and have to cope with the increased weight.
I'm just hoping that a buckling spring isnt too much.

I like scissors because they have that "double bump" tactile feel. where it snaps down and snaps up. and it makes a light "Click" when it comes back up.
scissors are WAY BETTER, and chocolate keyboards much nicer than a rubberdome, but the keys are still harsh compared to the MX Blue.

I dont like the lack of tactile, it just bothers me.

I play LoL, and MMORPGs. I used to play Zerg in Starcraft2 and was pushing 85APM on my scissors, but ive not played SC2 for a long time. I also play fighting games and fight sticks always have tactile clicky buttons.

If I wanted to go for a quiter switch it would be MX Clears.

 

Yes, I have a thing for red. It goes deep into my veins this love for red.

 

Maybe one day I will finally give in and try to paint, but I really don't think I'd do a good job of it.

I currently have a QuickFire Rapid with blank black PBT keycaps and was thinking of getting a Ducky Shine 3 TKL but I'm not sure what the keycaps are like. I wouldn't want to put my PBT keycaps on the Shine 3 because it wouldn't look that good with the backlighting but then the PBT caps would be unused as I don't have / want another mech keyboard. What should I do?

Pretty much all backlit keycaps are crap by design, they are an opaque white painted over in black minus the legend, so you're kinda sol.

so if you want back lighting, you're pretty much stuck with cheap keycaps.

Well the 80g are supposed to be comparable to cherry heavy springs.

Sell PBT Keycaps and embrace DS3. Turn lighting off on DS3 completely ignoring (wasting) the major selling point and enjoy your PBT keycaps or don't get a DS3 and get an XT and put the PBT keycaps on that and now you have a quality board with your quality keycaps.

I bought my full-size MJ2 for $130 CAD with free express shipping from them.


Oh!

They're also selling some Ducky Shine 3's for $119.99 CAD.

Damn Canadians always getting all the good deals. tongue.gif

One would assume that once they get used to something a subtle change would have a drastic noticeable feel.


Do the greens tire you out at all?

I could instantly feel the difference between pleb domes and mechanical switches.

I can tell and feel the difference between each switch. They all have a distinct feel.

I completely get what he's saying when he said his reds were dry or whatever. I haven't messed with lube or needed to, but if for some reason my mind recesses and I like linear switches (won't happen. tongue.gif) then I'll definitely lube it up. wink.gif


They ship to the U.S. as well! A lot of time with free shipping too.

And hey, we never get deals! NCIX is one of the few good Canadian e-tailers biggrin.gif

I remember something on their site a while back was cheaper to ship than the U.S. than it was to ship to me, even though it ships out of Vancouver.

Dumb!

AFAIK, pros use whatever sponsors give them to use. It's not really the equipment that helps a pro gamer all that much, it's how he uses it.

I don't really understand the obsession with people wanting to use what the pros use.
