Keyboards / Re: Are Matias Quiet Click and Clicky the same switch?

I wasn't sure if it had an entirely different leaf like Alps or if the rubber dampener served to quiet the bottom out and click, but the leaf was the same.

Second question is it easy to replace the rubber dampener once it has been removed? From what it looks like there is a "bump" on either end to keep it from sliding out of the slider easily.

yeah super easy.

when we had the toronto meet up with matias the year they came out with the quiet click and the click they showed us how to disassemble the switch and said that if you took off the rubber dampener it would essentially be the same thing. so both of them technically click.

however i have some older quiet clicks switches and some newer quiet clicks, and the older ones definitely have a feint click but the new ones don't and seem quieter.. so maybe something changed, not sure.

Could people please stop trying to move everything to MaxKeys... if you want a nice set, do it properly and don't rush things.
No rushing intended.

I have not heard other complaints about MaxKeys other than lack of layouts (and the funky but now fixed legends), which can presumably be talked about with MaxKeys. I have not owned a set so I might be missing something, have your MaxKeys sets had flaws?

I am OK with good old SP SA as well in case MaxKeys has issues in fulfilling visions. :)

Finish is different and shape is not to my liking either

I knew the finish was a bit different, but didn't know the profile is not 1-to-1. Or do you mean legend shapes?

No, SP SA has slightly more rounded off edges of the touch surface, while MaxKeys is a sharper edge and corner, a bit more 'cubic' if that makes sense. I own a copy of WoB MaxKeys and it's quite noticeable IMO, and I simply prefer SP's more glossy round finish

It is a shame they named the profile SA while it looks and feels so different.

That's on the community, they chose to call it that. IMO it should be 'MK SetName' instead of SA, but its too late for that now. It's also going to be a pain on the aftermarket to discern between manufacturers, e.g. Calm Depths will soon be both SP and MaxKeys, but both is referred to "SA Calm Depths"
