Hottest keyboards nowadays?

Hi,
I've been using a cherry mx red Leopold for many years, I used logitech mx brown before that, but I spilled water on it. I started doing hard maps on OSU, but I feel like I'm getting CTS, so I'm thinking of swapping to mx blue which will stop me from pressing keys too hard because of its tactility. It's almost black friday, so are there any specific model/brand I should be looking out for? How are the gx blue and razer green switches as well? I'd appreciate recommendations on any hot keyboards nowadays!

Maybe go with browns. Same as blue, but without the annoyingly loud clicks. Clicks are great though if all you do is type.

I liked browns perhaps better than the reds, but I feel like it's still not enough tactility. To me, the browns kinda felt mushy, and I feel like I'm already making enough noise bottoming out reds

There is a more obscure switch, the MX Clears that are similar to browns but with more resistance. I have tried it and it is nice.

I like the MX Browns though. I used to have Reds but are way to sensitive. I find my hand leaning on the keys and it registers when I don't realize it lol.

i picked up the Massdrop Ctrl with Halo Trues and so far i am really enjoying them so far. I also have a glorious gaming keyboard with purple pros which feel nice but i prefer the clears.

I don't think anyone makes keyboards with heaters yet which starts to get useful as winter has hit right about now. Need them heated keyboards for people with cold hands.

Thanks for all the suggestions I will try the clears next time I have a chance to go to a store or maybe order a trial switches.

The Ctrl one looks really nice and makes me drool as well, but the drop is inactive currently

Indeed, I notice during the winter my hands are cold unless I play games for long enough that my computer heats up my room. A heated keyboard would be nice haha

I originally wanted a logitech keyboard too, because I already got a g pro mouse and I heard their latency is really low. But people seem to be very torn on the their switches. I'll try out logitech switches as well when I go to a store next time!

A lot of it is preference though, so you have to try a few combos to see what you like.
very true

That aside, anyone got any great mechanical keyboard deals for Black Friday?
