They're technically all the same, but in actuality it goes like this:

(Light)  MX Red  ->  MX Brown  ->  Topre 45g  (Heavy)

Also Topre domes are stiffer when new, so when you first got it it will feel quite a bit heavier.

But fear not you'll get used to the oneness with cup rubber very fast.  :thumb:


Yeah this sounds about perfect to be honest with you.

I just recently got a HHKB and I promised I'd stick with it and I can tell you now that I don't want to type on anything other than a HHKB!! I am in love with the feel of Topre mechanism and I removed all thought of it being a hybrid.

Do they feed you in the mind reprogramming camps, or just whip you until you promise to love Topre above all others?

they starve me first, then whip me into oblivion.   :)

Curious -- how long is the break-in period? I'm about a month of light use into my HHKB and definitely noticed how much stiffer (and cleaner) it feels than my KUL with Brown switches.
