First I pre-ordered these on the 2/15 wasn't supposed to ship until the 2/17. Shipped on the 2/16 and received them 2/18 (supposed to arrive on 2/20. Fulfillment was amazing, packaged well for shipping, they included two hi-chews and a pair of chip chopsticks! Found myself a new business to support! Thank you Kirballskeys! The switch review: Switches came in a plastic bag, one bent pin (I expected more than one, but was very pleasantly surprised). The switches themselves have a nice purple stem/light purple finish. The housing isn't as quality as gaterons but they sound less scratchy when compared to unlubed gateron yellows and baby raccoons also a reduced spring ping. Lubed and placed in my QK65 and they sound creamy/thocky. Would recommend this product!
stock, these are probably close to the scratchiest switches i own. HOWEVER, when properly lubed, these sound and feel amazing. these switches are very thocky when paired with the right keyboard. Kirballskeys also shipped my order the same day i placed it, and EVEN INCLUDED MY FAVORITE FLAVOR OF HI-CHEW WHEN IT SHIPPED! i will continue to buy from kirball’s keys
Gazzew will never let you down! The bottom-out is nice due to the longer pole, providing the "thock". But overall, I would actually say the switches are higher pitched than I expected. In terms of smoothness, since there's no factory lube on the stem, it is just a tad bit scratchy when you put it close to your ear (similar to a stock INK Black V2 but a little smoother). The scratch disappears with some lubing. Filming is optional in my opinion. This is my first time purchasing from Kirball's Keys and certainly will not be my last. Shipping (for the U.S.) was extremely fast, mine arrived within 4 days. Packaging was simple yet protective. I found a few bent pins here and there but that's expected. Overall great experience!
I gotta say, these are really nice switches. They're nice and smooth and provide a satisfying sound in my KBD67 Lite. The long pole stem kind of caught me off guard, especially on the spacebar, but I quickly adjusted to it. After using these for a little while, I'm still unsure if linears will be a daily for me (I type a lot for work), but if you're a linear fan or just wanting to try some out, these are a great option! I bought the 65g variant because I like more resistance. I'm a big tactile fan. I'd also like to thank Kirball for the absolutely lightning fast service. I purchased these and he had them dropped off at the post office within like 2 HOURS. I live only a few states away and received them in 2 days. Crazy good service. I highly recommend purchasing from this site!
