Here's a new one.

Kinesis Freestyle.


Kinesis Freestyle Force graph.


Measured using this rig. Itronic-Fuchs 8274 Force Displacement Tester


Using the nickel test this guy gets 45g as the peak force.

Same result.

Cheaper too.

i thought my 16 nickels on my G15 rev2.0 was terrible, i see some of you guys are doing even worse than i am! 16 nickels = 80g

16 all across my keyboard, whether its the space bar or the never used scroll lock. Had it for 3 years and countless typing and games. Well over 2000h for sure.

I think the force it takes to get the key to fire does get higher over time on a rubber dome.

I've had some I felt like I had to stab with my finger to get to work.

Platinum Pro/Sound (company SC&T International, Inc) model CC-104 made in 1995, buckling spring hammer over membrane switch.

Took 12 nickels to register every key except for spacebar, which took 14.
