[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 599

post #5981 of 36807
I have tried MX Blues often but not as a daily driver until now. I like them but they don't have that kind of solid feel to them like complicated ALPS have. Cherry switches just feel empty and hollow to me in comparison. The only cherry switch that can somewhat replicate the feel is Clears. The force difference is a good change of pace for me though. The only cherry switches I use regularly are Blacks and Clears and then ALPS the rest of the time so I'm used to 55-70g.

I tried some white clicky alps at frys a while back. Really liked the feel of them. Wouldn't mind finding a decent board with them.

I think those are Fukkas. The SIIG with them is horrible itself but the switches are nice. Not quite the same as complicated ALPS but good enough.

Yah I hear they are not as good. I think it was a Siig. And yes the board seemed pretty weak thats why I didn't buy it. But I did like the switch a lot. Felt really solid to type on.

Fukkas are the median between complicated ALPS and the type II(XM) that most seem to despise. Personally I might even like the Fukkas even more than the real thing. I have a keyboard with them but to be honest I have never actually typed on it, I have just felt the switches. Typing on complicated ALPS feels a little too solid at times( But then again my complicated switches are just barely getting worn in, they were practically new when I got them and I switch around keyboards so often they don't get a ton of use from me). So typing on something like MX Blues feels like a nice break, they are light and agile feeling.

Only issue is the spacebar stabiliser is in a slightly different position to the new keycap, but i knew this would be an issue for the start and i plan on fixing it myself.

Just got my Leopold TKL with browns and some blank reds. I happen to love this baby dear here.

Found out EliteKeyboards is like ten minutes away from me... who knew!
