BOBA PLASTIC IS BEING DISCONTINUED AS A RESULT ALL PURPLE & PINK BOBA PLASTIC THAT IS AVAILABLE CURRENTLY IS THE LAST THAT WIL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THE NEW PLASTIC HAS BEEN PRODUCED. I may make other colors available for LT & Bobagums but that will be determined when all of the bases have been used. There will be a new plastic replacing boba plastic that will be added in the future in place of the boba plastics.
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 PARTS AVAILABILITY FOR THESE REASONS SOME OPTIONS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE.
CLEAR TOPS DO CAUSE A SLIGHT CHANGE IN SOUND PROFILE ON THE UPSTROKE OF THE SWITCH.
The Boba LT is a linear switch from Gazzew and manufactured by Outemu. Sold in packs of 10. They are available with purple bases and purple or nixdork tops. Nixdork tops are a white top with tighter tolerances resulting in less stem wobble. The stem color is dark purple. These are lubed to order and are lubed in the order that orders are received. 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/gazzew-lt-linear-thock/.
If you disassemble your switches please watch this video on the correct assembly procedure to prevent damaging the leaf and causing inconsistencies. https://youtu.be/8ZSlVkCLBWY

I just got these switches from my order and they are outstanding and when I say that I am comparing those to Zeal Aqua Zilents, MX Zilents, Boba U4 RBS and these feel great. I have a singular regret and that is I didn't order more of them. :)
Seriously one of the best linear switches out there and perfect in my build 10/10! Appreciate the thoccs and feeling of it
They have close to no stem wobble and a very smooth travel. The sound on bottoming out is nice thocky. Kirball was also fast with replying to questions and requests on his discord for my order, would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs hand lubed switches.
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. Reply from Kirball: 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.
