If you use them for several hours every day for a few months, your fingers will start to complain. Where as on a lighter keyboard they wouldn't. At least, that is my experience from using variable-force Topre vs. Cherry keyboards at work.

There are those who have tried New-In-Box vintage keyboards that do say that these feel better
than new keyboards.
Broken-in switches are smoother than new switches, though.

the placebo is strong.

The placebo makes you THINK you feel some type of way.

Oh and there is a difference between gold and silver springs....and a slight difference between vintage and modern blacks. Gold springs are a bit taller and feel heavier. Vintage switches feel a touch lighter and smoother. But its VERY hard to tell when the caps on. Not sure if its worth hunting down vintage blacks but there is a difference. Lubing really makes it linear switches feel nice though hehe.
