Browns and reds are so similiar. Browns are like gritty reds....essentially they feel just as light as reds, but the miniscule tactile bump makes them not nearly as smooth as reds. Reds are definitely my favorite switch. Blues come second, then browns, then blacks, then clears.

I have an HHKB and the OCN Ducky with blacks and love the topre switches so much. Think getting reds would be better than browns in that case?

Idk...I've never typed on topres so I've got no clue which cherry switch they are most similar to. If you like blacks, but you want a lighter switch then you can't go wrong with reds. Personally, I've always felt like browns were the offspring of a blue and red switch that got hit with the ugly stick. Meaning, browns are not smooth enough to be on par with reds but at the same time, not tactile enough to be on par with blues. Browns are a severe compromise between the smooth linearity of reds and the sensory feedback of blues.

Haha. I decided to get a Poker with reds a few minutes ago.

@Reaper- bought boost's KBC Poker w/ reds, alum case, wrist rest and his 3rd superhero prototype biggrin.gif He's painting it tonight and shipping everything tomorrow. Hopefully I get lucky with shipping and it gets here by the weekend to try it out.

while you're at it, you might as well setup auto payments monthly to Ragnarok and Tsangan for Group Buys.

Oh and also the $7 bucks a month to Waar/Demik for the Monthly GH keycap

Haha, touche my good man. I will be getting new keycaps for the Poker soon enough since MX caps are so much easier to find than topre. If I hadn't jumbled up my box of red Realforce keys while finding the ones that fit on my HHKB I'd sell the remainder, but alas I failed to do so and will be forever left with the remainder unless I can find someone on GH who wants an assortment of red keys for their 87U (I think that's the model, got'em from EK). Just glad I have full sets of black, white and red blanks for my HHKB now so I can change things up as I look for the perfect look. Now I need some o-rings for my Poker Reds, and the keyboard in general so I can break from my HHKB while I plan out the keyboard setup.
