straw poll: Do you prefer tact switch or regular switch for wheel click?

this is a small straw poll to show what do you prefer in case of wheel click.



https://www.strawpoll.me/19236691



so what do you prefer as wheel click?



Tact switches :

https://www.overclock.net/forum/atta...319004&thumb=1

used by razer and logitech sometime they tend to be stiffer,,are extremely light for the mouse ,have a very low travel and tend to have a low life rating .

Regular Mouse switch:

https://www.overclock.net/forum/atta...319006&thumb=1

used in most new gaming mouses,by glorious,finalmouse and xtrfy

they can make the wheel a bit noisy,they can be light or stiff,can have low or high life ratings,have longer travel,are a bit heavier for the mouse.




make your choice and have fun!

Regular switches. Though really, as long as I can click without scrolling, and scroll without clicking, when I want to, all is good.

I dislike a stiff mouse wheel, gives me pain so i generally swap out for a lower newton 3 pin switch. that said, i like how the 2 pin switches orient the switch blade at 90 degrees to the wheel axle. this ensures a consistent click every time, not a click and unclick like a 0 degree orientation with wear as the axle moves back and forth, missing the switch occasionally.

well the easy fix would be to just enlarge the axle
wicked bunny did this and they use regular omrons for wheel click.

Though that means the front of your mouse has to be taller. There's also no reason you can't rotate a normal 3 pin switch 90 degrees.

Almost all middle mouse clicks to me are crappy and usually pretty stiff except for Steelseries, which seems to be the one thing they're consistently good at. So it's not just switch alone since a lot of people use the same switches and end up having a bad MMB. Things like the G302 switch are also passable, but not quite as good. But even on Steelseries I think a few of the cheaper, obsolete mice like the Kana v2 might have better MMB than some of the newer ones.

the mouse is not that high and rotating the switch could be an issue.
you'll lack of space for a symmetrical switch placement.

As an add-on to the above post, anyone know offhand what the G302 middle mouse switch is? Feels like a Huano. Would definitely be better with an Omron. I think people are actually mistaken about why companies do this because there's very little price savings actually there. I think they do it because for some reason they erroneously believe the middle mouse click is supposed to be harder, or think it helps people with ogre fingers from accidentally pressing down when scrolling.

it is hard to tell on the 302 because it use a suspended wheel.
and there is a rubber tact switch near to a regular kailh switch.
