Totally different feel from either of those. Also, significant difference between the M and F. I have not used an F myself, but have been told that it makes an M feel like a toy. Having said that, I actually use my M as my daily board even though I have one with whites, and one with blues. I actually like playing games with the M. It has a very satisfying heft to it that makes my other boards feel dainty. I still love having the others, but the M is not going anywhere.
I am planning on bolt modding mine in the near future (I can't help but tinker with stuff) even though it has most of the stock rivets. I like the idea of it being even more solid
Of note is that my blues are in a QFR. They have a nice distinct click, and after using my M, feel a little light. I find myself making typos all over the place (not nearly as bad as with MX reds though). The board type makes a significant difference in the feel of the switches (ie: plate mounted, pcb mounted, dual pcb, etc...).
