I'm so glad that you and the factory and the distributors were able to work out a new arrangement during the crisis. Alpacas are great switches, and it will be very helpful to have them in 67 gr as well. I will definitely be buying samples to compare them with the Mauves.

Count me in simply because I can't find any alpacas lol I'll be stocking up hard on these

You can buy durock linears from their AliExpress store, unless you want a recolor like alpaca or tyke.

Yeah they have a ton of production switches available. 

But I think lil Tykes and alpacas custom colors are definitely worth waiting for  ;D

So Durock has informed us that Production had slowed for Custom colorway switches. We are still in line for production but there are dozens of other custom orders awaiting production as well.

They told us it would be over a month to get caught up with current full orders.

We have yet to receive samples but they assured us they will done as soon as there team is able to amidst the large queue.

So maybe another month, maybe two. Hard to say.




I will definitely show off the samples and let everyone know when we get word on the full production status.  :thumb: :thumb:

These look sick! Will ddef cop them when they become available. I was not aware the Alpacas were only a recolor, does anyone know the name of the original switch? Are there any differences besides colors and spring weight?

I'm not sure what Alpacas was a recolour of, or if it was just a recolour.

Durock makes various lines of stock, plain-coloured linear switches such as L1 and L7 in 67 gr weights. According to Durock, those switches are close to the various 67 gr recolours. These Lil' Tyke switches may be recolours of L1/L7-type switches.

Alpacas could be a recolour and spring-swap of normal Durock 67 gr linears, or at least the base design. I'm sure it's been written about somewhere.

For all intents and purposes, these are literally “Recolored Alpacas” directly ordered by PrimeKB.

So it will be the same exact switch just a little heavier.

We are in queue for production but I guess Durock is a bit slammed on new custom orders ATM.

Here is the update from Late May:


So Durock has informed us that Production had slowed for Custom colorway switches. We are still in line for production but there are dozens of other custom orders awaiting production as well.

They told us it would be over a month to get caught up with current full orders.
