Didn't know about stabs, people just aren't checking the post for a JWK switch that often. They will likely do very well considering the Eva keyset and other switches that ran.

Rara vs. T1

Here's what the designer of RARA, '43,' said in a Drop post about Rara vs T1:
Quote
I'm 43, RARA is  a physically different design, the spring/ and leaf ping is more quite. RARA is not the T1 clones.
It is very similar to 62g mx clear,more smooth.

So these are supposed to be similar to MX Clear in intensity, but with JWK smoothness.

A variation of the T1 stem with different materials.



Quote
In image's left side is rara's stem ,and the right side is KBDFANS T1's stem,
the red line at T1's stem is the point where T1 create tactile
,but the black line at Rara's stem is where rara create tactile



Quote
yeah,the difference in structure is small, but the difference in feel is obvious

Thats the difference between t1 and rara,

the stem which at the front is t1, rara is behind it

they all line up and cling at each other

Force Diagram:



Chinese typing test:

https://www.bilibili.com/video/av77160874?from=search&seid=11444903851290698992

You can read what the designer said, in this Drop thread:

https://drop.com/buy/jwk-rara-tactile-custom-mechanical-switches/talk/2562222?utm_source=linkshare&referer=BPKDQH


Reviews indicate that the switch [in the original JWK Rara housing] feels good, but may have ping.

There is supporting evidence that the designer was correct about the changes to the T1 stem.

'43' said that the T1 stem had been modified to reduce the overall tactile intensity, with the higher-tactility curve being pushed further down the tactile leg.

One review seems to corroborate this:

Quote
Okay, now that I'm home, I tried some Raras against T1s (Red stem, smoky housing), Koalas, and Lilacs. Each switch had Sprit 63.5 Slow springs in them, no lube or film added.
Raras definitely are prelubed on stem and bottom housing rails.

In terms of stock smoothness, my experience was T1s>Raras>Koalas=Lilacs.
For sound, Raras are lower pitched and bassier than T1s, and are slightly more muted than Koalas, less bassy than Lilacs. The upstroke of the Raras sounds to be the quietest of all 4 switches.

In terms of feel, Raras feel like they have more pretravel than T1s. Holding them side by side and pressing gently till I start to feel the bump, I can definitely see the Rara stem press down more than the T1 (seems like it goes twice as deep, in my rough totally-not-professional guesstimate). The tactile bump also feels less sharp and less pronounced than the T1s. I can see what the 43 means by the Ergo Clear comparison. An interesting tactile option that I hope is more widely available, feels and sounds like a bit of a "stealthier" (but not silenced) tactile option in the JWK lineup.

So this might be a more polite 'T1' more comparable to MX Clear, as advertised. Sure would be interesting to buy them in these Shogoki housings.

Haha smart. I'm partial to KBDFans, but I specifically wanted a full size keyboard because this will be used for games at home, and many games require a full range of keys. Having to press multiple things just to activate something in game is kind of a pain.

The 75% is used for work (Also with the SA Berserk Unit-02 themed keycap set :p)

Yes, happy as hell. I thought I saw something about a GB on Reddit about 1/2 a month ago. Well, I was mistaken. Count me in for @ least 60.

There was also a pre-order for "Crane Tactile" switches, which I think also use the RARA stem. That happened in the summer, I don't know if they've shipped yet.

Everyone is waiting eagerly for the Shogoki, rest easy, they haven't even gone to GB phase.

the accent on top of the o is what makes it shogouki instead of shogoki
