Best Springs For Spring Swap?
« on: Fri, 15 November 2019, 10:30:02 »
I am going to be using either gat ink blacks or c3 tangerines and am wondering what spring would be best to swap out for a low 70gf bottom out weight.

Springs are subjective, there is no "better" spring, only the one who's rate/curve you like best.

I really like TX's springs & spring lube. They're high quality, consistent, & a great value with or without the lube & lube deck packaging. If you want them right now though you'll have to order from the intl. proxy since the US one only has 55g springs without the lube + deck in stock right now. https://txkeyboards.com/en/shop/us-store/tx-spring-intl-70g-cherry-detail

For most people, Gateron yellow springs, 62g, 63.5, and 67g seem to be good

My Zealios switches are 65G and they are NEAR PERFECT to fidget with.

I think, but 65G is good enough for me. Not too heavy and not too light.

I have not used Ink switches so I can't compare,
but I'm using 65g SPRiT springs and so far I don't want to change springs anymore :p

And, it seems people like 65g springs as well. I'm thinking of getting 65g springs for my vintage MX black switches.
