I have been waiting for the linear version of these Boba switches for their thocky bottom out sound. So far it is almost as good as the U4T as far as sound goes. I have a variety of switches to compare with Gateron Ink Reds, Gateron Yellows, Outemu Reds and Kailh Box Reds. As far as smoothness, it is not as smooth as your normal lubed gateron red/yellows. Certainly not Gateron Inks as well. It does have a little bit of friction in my experience so far. Even when it comes lubed with something creamy I find that it is not exactly up to my taste. It could be that I need to break it in after a while but these are my first impression. I may change it up with Krytox 205g0 sometime in the future.
So far I am satisfied but did not quite reach my expectations when I bought it so I gave it 4 stars for now.

No way to directly reply so I'm going to reply here. I would not recommend Krytox 205g0 for bobas. They usually introduce too much drag for the tight tolerances and cause more issues than they solve.
