Just sayin... to me at least, and not only because 55 is a bigger number than 45. I got a new 45g 87u from elitekeyboards since they were on sale, and I must say that I am pretty disappointed in comparison to my 55g(previous daily driver). Although the 45g still feels better than blue/brown/red/black Cherry switches to me, it feels noticeably less snappy than the 55g. I now can understand why some people think that Topre keyboards are kind of mushy, because the 45g ones kind of are compared to the 55g, and now I don't even want to try the variable or lower weight ones. For some reason I thought the 45g would be just as snappy, just with a lower actuation force like Cherry brown - which is my favorite cherry switch and to my understanding is also 45g. I was wrong. Oh well, it's still an awesome keyboard, just not what I expected. I just figured I'd post my opinion, since the general consensus from the posts I have read here is that the 55g is the least enjoyable, and my experience is exactly opposite.
