Different feel on different switches?
« on: Thu, 25 July 2019, 15:18:36 »
I have hear this posted a lot but whats the deal. I have some ePBT caps, one set on gateron browns on a stock tada. And another on an 8X with T1's. The feel is quite different. I think I enjoy them more on the lighter switches.

I mean yeah Gateron Browns and T1 Are different switches after all. I guess you like lighter less tactile switches more then the T1 switches.  Or am i getting your question wrong?

It happens.

There's all sorts of things affect how a keycap set feels - switches, plate material and thickness, even the desk surface and whether you use a keyboard mat can alter the feel of the same keycap set on different keyboards.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

No I'm talking about the caps. Of course the switches are different. I have been enjoying typing on PBT more on the light switch than the heavy switch.

Ah yeah. That is totally possible i can see how the pressure of your finger on the key caps can make the difference in feel.

There are a lot of different type of caps. Some smooth some with textures in the design. It just depends on what you like
