--- Quote from: Nerif on Wed, 25 August 2021, 05:48:33 ---I think that light switches shouldn't exist. I prefer MX Blacks over the Reds, Clears over the Browns and so forth and so on. I hate light switches so much that I think that the worst part of the MX Brown switch is the 45g spring, which is too light for a tactile switch. Seriously, tactile switches have been made to PREVENT accidental keypresses, and the light spring gets in a way of that preventing.

Also, my hands start to hurt over time when I type on a keyboard with light switches, but they don't when I type on a keyboard with heavy switches.

So are you one of those refined humans from 40 generations from now who can naturally type well without bottoming out?

Okay it doesn't matter really, yeah, I can type without bottoming out, I need to say "Thank you" to o-rings for that. Seriously, they are not as bad as people think, they are good in ergo-ish way

With 150g switches in BOX Navy switches, 200g in my Macropad, I agree 100%!

NoteMakoti:
Light switches are great for boards with softer bottom outs, but I wouldn't care for them with hard ones.
