Alpacas also have a polycarb top and to be honest they had a bit of a pop on the upstroke that I wasn't fond of and few others have mentioned the same thing. Sounds like the typing videos reflect that too.

It's cool that they look like shiny vintage blacks though.

That pop is largely caused by the loose top housing.  It is greatly reduced with switch films.  I don't mind adding films, but it would be ideal if they could just tighten tolerances.

Well, based on this
...
These are NOT ordinary JWK linears; HHHH worked with JWK and modified existing molds to his specification.

...
we can hope that HHHH did make JWK do something to tighten the top housing.

It's not fixed with switch films, I did 90 of them with 205 and the tops were still pretty loud even filmed. It's the polycarb top.

From what little feedback there has been so far from the Mauve switches, it seems a full Nylon housing is preferred sound-wise. Would that be a possibility with these switches or are we too deep into the process to have full nylon housings?

2 questions:
- I'm in Korea but I don't know any local community. Is there anyway I can get it for local? instead of purchasing from overseas
- is it SMD LED compatible? since seems it's solid?
They are not being sold by HHHH at the moment for the time being, as he'd like to expand to other markets. You will have an opportunity to purchase them through the group buy.

Not sure about SMD, I don't remember so I will ask him.
well that's sucks since the shipping will always be expensive to here though it's understandable.

about SMD will be waiting! i don't mind either way, just want to know what to expect

Ive tried 5 different type of JWK switches and they all needed switch films to keep the top housing from rattling.  Any chance you could convince them to get that addressed?   
Tolerances were pretty tight from my impressions, but I'll talk to him to see what I can do to tighten it some more.
"This linear switch is extremely smooth. Sound tests are linked at the bottom of the post, and hopefully that gives an idea of the smoothness."

Very interested as I'm kinda sick of all the cutesy colored switches (especially with linears) TBH. It would definitely be a huge plus if HHHH got the tightness of the top housings fixed with his design here. Either way count me in for at least batch or two!

This switch has good top/bottom coupling.

Talking about a Chinese clone, I'm sure you're likely talking about 43 Studios' Obsidian switch. However, according to 43's ZFrontier page, those are being sold with 62g gold plated springs rather than the 78g springs listed here for H1s. Do you have any commentary on if these are the clones being mentioned and if so, why the difference in spring weight?

Link to 43 Studios' Obsidian Switches:
https://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/18102

To explain my poor English, I am referring to the switch.

I can't claim ownership of the existing molds.
I am also due to the switch made by modifying the existing mold.
Creating new molds can be expensive, and consequently the amount of the product increases.
Someday I'll have a new mold engraved with the logo on the top shell, but not now.
So what I want to say is to I avoid misunderstanding later

I am interested in these, but I'd definitely like a lighter spring.  I was planning on getting alpacas to build my GSKT-00 with, but I might get these instead, and spring swap them to be lighter.  I'd like it if multiple spring weights were offered, so I could avoid the trouble of sourcing different springs.  I would also prefer it if the switches didn't have any branding.

That's it. That's what I thought. I want to avoid this misunderstanding. I was selling it in Korea while it was receiving applications. Isn't it really funny? I don't think there can be a monopoly on color and pressure. Also, I did not create a new mold and I did it by asking for modification of the existing mold. I think a switch of similar concept can be made because it belongs to JWK.

For what it's worth, between this and other JWK linears I own, they are significantly different.

In which way are they significantly different? How would you compare these to the Alpaca/Mauve in terms of smoothness?

Similar smoothness unlubed, H1s are more buttery when lubed. Much deeper and thockier sounding.
