[IC] Frost Pandas and Aura Tactile Stems
« on: Tue, 11 May 2021, 22:47:54 »


Title Photo


Hi everyone, Jefff from JLabs here, this is the IC post for the Frost Panda project.

Specs:
  • Manufactured by BSUN
  • 5 Pin
  • First-ever full Nylon PA66 Panda housings
  • Consistently light application of factory lube, which can be lubed over with little effort. The factory lube helps minimize the leaf ping often found in Panda housings.
  • Two stem options:
         Long-Pole Linear Stem (Black POM, 13.5mm long, which is 1mm longer than the standard Panda linear stem)
         JLabs "Aura" Long-Pole Tactile Stem (Translucent POM, 13.55mm long, which is .1mm shorter than Halo stems
Aura Stems will also be sold seperately as an in-stock item.

Status:
I'll be sending prototype units to content creators soon.

Info:
  • NA vendor will be JLabs, and I'm currently in the process of determining the other vendors.
  • You can get updates by joining the discord server, discord.io/jlabs
  • You can find more pictures on my instagram @jlabs_official
INTEREST CHECK FORM

Thanks for checking these out, and have a great day!

Will the aura stems be high tactility? Or low tactility?

These stems will be high tactility, with a P profile bump.

Nylon housings are real nice, great choice.

I always love options to buy standalone stems. Any chance you’d consider offering long-pole linear stems as standalone too, maybe in a future project? I’m 99% sure there’s a market for it. The linear meta of adding NK Cream/Kailh Linear stems to everything is ridiculous and ridiculously expensive tbh  :-X

Actually, yes, that might end up happening!

Oo, I hope it does! I’ve joined the Discord and will keep an eye out  ;)

Filled the IC, might as well share my thoughts. I'm not interested in the stock switches - not because I hate the idea, full nylon is always welcome imho - because I've got so many switches lying around, some of them of the Panda persuasion. I'm sure there will be some people interested, but I wholeheartedly believe you can and should run a GB with the Aura Tactile Stems alone even before they become in-stock parts. I'm willing to bet that there's considerable demand for Halo-esque/tactile long-poled stems alongside a keen interest in minimizing expense and waste in this hobby, so I'm pretty confident in the numbers if your choose to do so.

Cool looking forward to it :)
EDIT: Everything I say definitely applies to the linear stem as well.

Hello  I am the local  tree leaf  64.    Navy is a good color.
I dont like the long pole. I dont like the heavy tactile . I am a Brown lover

 The jeff  should embed an image so that one does not have to click on the link.
May display immature behavior
May talk in third person

Navy is most certainly not a good color to write GH posts in. I don't agree with you on long poles, tactility, and browns, but I will definitely embed an image.
