So would you say this is worth lubing and building as a 'better brown,' or is the switch just not high-grade enough?

I canít say how it performs when lubed because I havenít tried it, but I wouldnít waste my time doing it either. The tactile bump just isnít tactile enough for me personally. I think itís a good switch if youíre the experimental type, if you like swapping the stems and that jazz. Also, just checked that these are still on NovelKeys for cheap!

Personally I like these. The pre-travel  is a little shorter than plain Gateron/Cherry/Kailh Browns, so IMO that makes them kind of like the small-bump brown-equivalent to "Halo" style switches. Not saying the bump is more noticeable than a regular brown, just that it's at a height I like. I have them lubed with some Tribosys on my current gaming keyboard.

Yeah, I don't mind light tactiles. It's fun to grind with heavy Ergo Clears or mash some Holy Pandas, but so much of the world types on light tactiles. I think there's a place for them. And if TTC Gold V2 Browns are like 'slightly smoother, slightly-improved Cherry Browns,' then they might be okay with lubing, as equalunique suggests.

[I like the Kailh tactiles that place the bump higher, such as BOX Browns, Pro Purples, and Speed Coppers. Although none of these switches are perfect.]
