The Boba U4 is a silent tactile switch from Gazzew and manufactured by Outemu. Sold in packs of 10. They are available with black or white bases and matching or clear tops. The stem color is white. These are lubed to order and are lubed in the order that orders are recieved. Switches are lubed with Gazzew's recommended method and his recomended lubes. PLEASE NOTE: Lubing is a time consuming process and fulfillment time can reach several weeks depending on the current volume of orders. If you need your switches sooner please consider buying the factory assembeld switches found here https://kirballskeys.com/factory-assembled-boba-u4/.
If you disassemble your switches please watch this video on the correct assembly procedure to prevent damaging the leaf and causing inconsistent tactility. https://youtu.be/8ZSlVkCLBWY

Kirball delivered the product as described and they work extremely well. I'm glad he included a few extra with my order as there were two dead switches (it happens). Lubed great, definitely recommend
Kirball did some great work on lubing these switches. The tactility was still pronounced, despite the smoothness. The noise was muted, as expected from a Boba U4. Hope to buy some more soon!
I ordered the switches with Nixdork housings and 75g Gazzew switches. The switches are lubed extremely well with no spring noise and a great sound. The Nixdork housings make the tolerances a bit smaller, meaning key wiggle is practically non-existent. A nice amount of tactility and very silent even with MT3 keycaps. On top of that, Kirball's customer service is top notch, I just messaged him on Reddit to ask a few questions regarding the order before and after I placed it and he was quick to respond and helpful. Thanks so much, highly recommend buying from here.
