@fleetfeather I found a 5x space bar in my sp grab bag. it appears to be a thick pbt sa profile, and it has minor surface imperfections, most likely from other keys in the bag rubbing against it. I'm more than willing to send it to you though as I have no use for it. I'll keep digging around in the bag to see if I can find you some 1.5x mods.

Has anyone here tried MX Greens? Blacks are too soft for me, and the upgrade bug is biting

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2110080/razer-blackwidow-ultimate-review-did-razer-design-a-better-switch.html

A review for the new Blackwidow Ultimate

I'm a bit confused

"Razer Greens feel a bit like a clicky rubber-dome switch"

"The Razer Greens, however, have a much higher actuation point. It’s very close to the keycap’s resting point"
Rubberdomes have a much lower accuation point don't they? i mean my scissorswitch there's almost no difference between bottoming out and accuation.

greens and blacks are my fav's, due to the hang and the click, greens while using the same springs as blacks, do require a bit more force to actuate. I like you, love heavy switches. I have noticed I can go all day typing on blacks, but writing on greens I do start to notice my fingers getting a little tired, espc, my pinkys when used for backspace, shift, etc.

so if you feel blacks are too soft, greens ( or clears, inbetween blks and grns in terms of force needed to throw the switch ) may be your next switch type, but any heavier than that and you'll have to find some custom springs to put in your switches. its not easy finding springs heavier than 80g's. There is such a thing as 'super blacks' just black switches with custom springs from 80-120g.

also note greens are clicky and tactile.

Eh, thats just the reviewers preception, and he probably does not have the experience with different switch types as some of us on here do.

To me, browns and ergo clears with o-rings feel alot like rubber domes. ( which is why I hate o-rings )

and yes, sissor have a very low throw, but you're right about rubber domes, they don't switch until they are bottomed out when the rubber cup underneath them colapses. It could be the reviewer feels like the hang of the slider ( to him ) feels like the collapsing of the rubber cups of a dome board.

EDIT: just read the review
I also love how razers marketing also got into the reviewers mind. Stating that they are "razer designed' switches, when they have been around cheap mechs for awhile.

Isn't there such thing as MX Grey which is like 100g? I know they arent common but i saw a key tester with one.

Quick question guys, are there any Caps that have "invisible" print-- meaning under normal conditions the key caps are blank, but when placed on top of an LED Cherry switch, the light shows through enough to display the print? I want the look of a blank keyboard, but keep the print visible for my fiancee.
