i've heard people call clears more tactical stiff browns.

reds are definitely lighter than browns tho.

First, red switch is linear and offers no tactility when pressed so it's better if you were to compare tactile switch with another tactile switch (that would be blue, brown and clear). Also as waar stated above, reds are diffinitely lighter than browns.

In my opinion, Reds are really over-hyped. I love my Browns with PBT keys.

I have been wanting to get ahold of one as well. I envy the guy who got all of those that went on ebay for like $10 a piece not too long ago.
I also have obtained a Ortek MCK-84. Its amazing. I will do a review on it since there is really only one other review that I could find online.

I saw that you picked that up and was interested in it also since it has Fukkas in it, , makes me want to find a flico zero now.

How are the Group Buy 3 (1?) keys compared to engraved PBT? Tator says he likes PBT more... I want to try out both.

Ok thanks guys, reps coming. I think if I buy another I'll just stick with browns. I think I like the tactile feel. Which I believe is the little bump you feel.

Might want to think maybe ergo clears if you like the tactile bump and want a little more weight than your browns.

The hard thing about ergo clears is you have to mod the board since its basically a brown spring with a clear stem. I defintely liked it better than the clears i had and something different than my browns which I wanted something a little more tactile and a litte more actuation force needed.

I've used both the reds and clears on my KBC Poker and liked the clears so much I went and bought a white leopold with clears.

In my opinion, the Poker PCB mounted clears ( I did them myself ) were a lot stiffer and had a more tactile bump that the leopold ( plate mounted ).

I'm not sure if the way the switches are mounted on the board makes a difference or if the supplier of my clear switches/springs provided something different.

I do prefer the clears on my pokers in comparison to the leopold. Before the clears, I've typed on reds and found them too light, although I still liked them. I just prefer the tactile bump of the clears.

I haven't typed on anything for an extended time,yet. This post is probably the most I have so far. I do feel some fatigue, but I'll just blame that on the way I am sitting and the way my wrists are angled.

All in all, I recommend the clears because of that tactility. In terms of noise, the leopold is quieter...both were o ring modded btw
