[IC] Honeydew Switches | Samples Arrived!

(1/6) > >>

YXXX:



Off the back of GMK fenglisu (鳳梨酥), we bring you a switch with a new material developed
by Tecsee and a gold-plated double spring. I have named and themed these
switches after the Honeydew.
 
HPE is a proprietary blend produced by Tecsee to improve on the structural rigidity of
UHMWPE but maintain the characteristic features that make it a joy to type on (if you’ve
tried Tecsee Jadeites, then you know what I’m talking about). For these Honeydews,
HPE will be used on both the top and bottom housings.
 
I am by no means a switch connoisseur (and will leave judgement to our reviewers
and content creators). Still, to my feel, HPE provides a softer or ‘less-aggressive’ typing
 experience than current PC/nylon offerings whilst still maintaining that clacky sound
profile that so many of us seek.

Of the stem and spring configurations that I tried, I felt that the snappy feel of the
gold-plated (much less spring crunch than others) double spring in combination with
 a long-pole POM stem further makes this switch much more fun and engaging than
many current offerings.


Switch Specs

Type: Linear, 5-pin, MX stem
Housing: HPE (Tecsee proprietary blend)

Samples

Photo was taken with an iPhone 12 Pro Max in natural light. Perceived colour will depend on a plethora of factors.

Mr Chrome:
I like it, but your IC form was broken for me.

Do you have an idea of pricing? And if you have sound tests, can’t you show photos of the switch instead of renders? :think:

IC form link should work now, sorry.

Sound tests were made with a different colour configuration, not the one shown in the renders.

It's a little different - not the typical PC/Nylon combination
