Twilight Switches

Group Buy May 12th-May 22nd. Estimated to ship around mid-July, followed by an in-stock sale around then.

  • New, very tactile JWK switch combining their Clear-like tactile stem with their T1 leaf
  • 5-pin housing
  • POM Stem (purple), PC top and nylon bottom (smoky gray)
  • 67g spring
  • Unlubed
  • By Pylon and brainandforce

Twilights are not a JWK recolor. It was born out of a JWK frankenswitch combo that Pylon and brainandforce discovered independently while experimenting: combining the MX Clear-like stem from a Durock Medium Tactile switch with the tactile leaf of the Durock T1 housing. The result is a sharp, punchy, tactile switch, with just a bit of pretravel. Imagine a smoother, much more tactile Ergo Clear. A tactile switch as intense as an NK_ Blueberry that can hold its own at lighter spring weights.



If you want a taste of what this switch feels like, you can use the stem off a Durock Medium Tactile, Mode Signal, Penguin, or RARA V2, and pair it with the housing from a Durock T1 or Koala. We are making this a pre-assembled switch so you can avoid the hassles and costs of frankenswitching.


Teal T1 stem for comparison

Last day! Our vendors will also have extras in stock, but it will likely be at a higher price.

Got the Twilights in, the feel of the leaf is basically identical to Crane tactiles. Obviously the Twilights are better tho. I mean, they're purple.

On extended use, I'd say the Twilight housing is 10-20% more snappy, without moving the tactile event. The force curve graph seems very accurate. They feel a lot better with lighter springs.
