PLEASE NOTE ALL HAND LUBED SWITCHES ARE PRE-ORDERS AND CAN TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS OR MORE FOR FULFILLMENT.  IF YOU CAN NOT WAIT A MONTH OR MORE FOR YOUR SWITCHES PLEASE DON'T ORDER THE HAND LUBED (Sometimes orders go out within a couple of days but to be safe if you can't wait please don't order these).  STOCK IS LIMITED TO 500 OF EACH SWITCH TYPE (U4, U4T, LT, BOBAGUM) PER WEEK WITH A MAXIMUM PURCHASABLE QUANTITY OF 110 PER PERSON PER SWITCH TYPE.  THE STOCK WILL RESET ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS AT 11:59 PM EDT.  THE REASON FOR THE LIMITS IS TO KEEP THE FULFILLMENT TIME DOWN AS ORDER FILL TIME IS APPROCAHING A MONTH OR MORE.

CLEAR TOPS DO CAUSE A SLIGHT CHANGE IN SOUND PROFILE ON THE UPSTROKE OF THE SWITCH.

The Boba U4T is a tactile switch from Gazzew and manufactured by Outemu.  Sold in packs of 10. They are available with white bases and white or nixdork tops.  Nixdork tops are a white top with tighter tolerances resulting in less stem wobble.  The stem color is mustard yellow.  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-u4t/.

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

    Great switches and quality service!

    The wait was worth it. The switches sound GREAT and feel great. I got mine with the 72g multi-stage spring and the feel versus the stock 62g sample pack I bought a while ago is phenomenal!

    A+

    Great feeling switches with a really good price for being hand lubed. Previously had Cherry browns on a K70 and the difference is night and day. Won't ever be able to go back to cherry switches. One switch appeared to be faulty but there was already an extra switch included in the package so it wasn't a problem.

    Good for the price but lube is too light for my preference

    Posted by Eric on May 31st 2022

    For the price this is a good value lube job. It's acceptable and seems consistent enough. I would give this product 3-stars for "average" but the cheaper prices and decently quick turnaround added an additional star. It's all up to personal preference but the application of the lube is too light for my taste and you can still hear the spring ping and plastic clack characteristics of stick bobas but reduced. It doesn't provide the deep thock sound of what I consider a properly lubed boba but once again, it's acceptable for the price but I would still suggest you lube yourself for any higher-end boards. I would buy again for cheaper boards or when I don't feel like lubing.

    Perfect

    Super happy with these. They sound and feel amazing. I'm used to typing on Cherry MX Browns, and these switches are a game changer.

    Still the best

    Posted by James on Apr 30th 2022

    I bought another four sets with clear tops and 65g springs. Exactly what I expected - feels great to type on them and they have that thocky report.

    Glad they offer hand-lubed, but need to fix casing issues

    Posted by Sky on Apr 20th 2022

    I got 70 switches and they arrived in a plastic bag. Not the end of the world, but that did mean a few bent pins. The big issue was that because the team had to open every switch to lube them, 90% of the switches had one corner not fully clicked into place and I had to squish them with a screwdriver individually to get the cases closed and flush again.

    Everything works great

    Purchased lubed u4ts and couldn't have asked for better. Every switch was lubed equally and the shipment was very quick. Had no issues whatsoever and really happy about the purchase.
