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

Excellent service and product
Ordered a set of the Hand Lubed 55g U4s and can't be happier about the purchase. Switches feel amazing, the whole process including shipping was faster than I expected, and can't say enough about the service as he was extremely friendly and even gave me some advice to save me a bit of money. Absolutely worth the buy if you are considering it!
55g Hand-lubed Boba U4's
They are smooth as HELL, and they all feel identical (they're very well lubed) and have lost no tactility. If you're looking to save some time and want someone to lube your switches, I can't recommend Kirball's Keys enough! Cheers!
In the world of silent tactile, I think these are currently the best it gets. The lubing done does make it just that slight amount better, but to be honest the improvement is minimal which just speaks to the stock quality of these switches. I’ve been working on finding something else that even compares and I haven’t found anything yet.
These switches feel amazing to type on. The tactile bump feel is definitely noticeable but not too tactile. They are also great for RGB and gaming. Thank you Kirball and switch luber for these amazing switches.
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.
