I wish you didn't just up your post count with one liners. It's pretty obvious what you are trying to do.

But yeah, welcome.

Lol

I had assumed the mx leopold boards used step sculpture 2 (which is similar to cherry), and the topre ones used the same base caps as hhkb / rf.

Hhkb, Rf, and Leopold all use the same profile, which is close to but not the same as cherry. Leopold calls it step sculpture 2 I believe, but let's just call it topre profile.

You sure about that? I don't think topre caps are the same as Leopold step sculpture 2.

Keyboards / Re: PSA: DO NOT lube your Topre switches
« Last post by tameone on Thu, 30 March 2017, 09:13:01 »
I've heard this before, and it usually comes from someone who lubed the entire slider, and not just the rails, or put way too much or too thick of lube on the rails. Rails alone will add some silencing and some friction reduction without causing slow rebound when done correctly. I've seen people use thin and thick switch lube, and I think thick (were talking a mix here, not a straight grease or thick stabilizer lube) is a good route for staying power.

Main reason I did it it's because I was using outemu mx blue's beforehand.
and I simply prefer a feel of a heavier switch.

Initially I wanted to find a 55g Plum, but looks like they came only in 35 and 45g.
So I ordered the cheapest non RBG model with 35g and a dome sheet from hansung.

Novatouch felt a tad too light for my taste.
and a lighter switch confirmed what I already knew, and that is I make a lot of mistakes on lighter switches.

so 55 was a natural movement.

The domes do feel heavier than blues, and for the just the right amount heavier.

they also make 62g domes, but I think that would be a bit to heavy for my tastes.


next thing I will probably do is remove the dental bands, apparently the keys feel more tactile then (not that they don't feel now). I can't imagine how would that feel, since now if feels better than almost all mx like tactile switches I've tried. The subtle off the top increased force feel amazing, and the lack of the force after the bump makes a really enjoyable typing experience.

Hence why I said, only thing better for me after this is a 55g realforce. Unfortunately, that's a bit too pricey to blind buy, so I'll probably pull the trigger after I try one.

So far, in regard to tactility the best is still Buckling Spring > Plum 55g > Novatouch 45g (I know they feel slightly different than proper Topre) > everything else.


Anyway, to much typing.

here's a pic :)
