Hello Fellow Pilots,

As you’ve noticed, we are a big fan of EVA-01 and have a thought to recreate a switch that resembles the all time favorite 01. Please fill up the form if you’re interested and let’s make this happened!

We will be collaborating with ThicThock for their very delicious DL springs. :)

____________________________________________________________________
New Specifications: -
  • Material: Poly top, Nylon Bottom, POM Stem
  • Color Reference: Pantone 2084C for Housing, Pantone 802C for Stem (Still to be further confirmed with Manufacturer)
  • Spring: ThicThock DL 65 springs
  • Nature: Tactile feel
  • Its gonna be a slightly more tactile ver of Ergo Clears ;)
  • Non-lubed at all (yea, the legs arent lubed too)

Old Specifications:-
More
•   Material: Nylon housing, POM stem and Poly top
•   Color reference: TBC with manufacturer
•   Spring: 62G
•   Nature: Tactile feel
•   Non-factory lubed
•   Rounded Tactile Feel ( Similar to T1s )

The switch will be made by JWK.

This switch will be a Rara switch recolor. The difference between this switch and Raras, will be the poly top and a better spring. :)
___________________________________________________________________
Pricing and MOQ:-
•   Price: TBC (We will try to get pricing that's favorable by everyone)
•   MoQs: 40,000

Vendor:-

ThicThock for Asia region
ApexKeyboards for Canada
____________________________________________________________________
As this is the initial interest check, I’ll keep you guys posted with more updates and renders in near future.

Thank you for your patience and feel free to leave comments below should you have any questions.

I really like the colourway, but maybe you could try contacting keebwerk, and make this a Tacit recolour, instead of another T1 version.
I'd love to see that collab, and I'm pretty sure keebwerk would be up to this aswell :thumb:

If the majority wants a lesser tactility, you could order the stems in linear housings instead, they smoothen the tactility some. I tried Koalas in durock linears previously and they feel less sharp yet still plenty tactile.

I'm similar, my primary interest is the price. With all these different switches, prices are starting to get crazy.

Interested, my only request is for the housing & switch to be great w/ handling different springs weights, in my case heavier springs. As long as this is possible, I'm all for it!

Tacits are keebwerk exclusivity/NDA bound. Durock/JWK etc is not allowed to make another silent tactile, nor a recolour of the Tacits without keebwerk consent.

And unrelated to that, T1's dont have a rounded bump, theyre one of the sharper tactile bumps on the market just behind sky v2s....

All of these super tactile switches are killing me. I wish someone would release a tactile that was similar to MX Browns, but smoother with a lighter spring, like 45g bottom out

Have you tried Aliaz switches?  Sounds like just what you're looking for.  I like them okay, but for me I need the nice big round tactile bumps!

Love the look, but not down for them being just a T1 recolor. Any chance a linear version could be added? If they tactility could be toned down I'd be in for the tactile version, but I don't think Durock/JWK have anything other than the T1 stem profile for tactiles. I gotta agree with the others in this thread that are just plain burned out on MX tactiles trying to have as big as a bump as possible. If Cherry would get off their ass & retool the molds for MX clears they'd make a killing. I could see a huge resurgence in popularity for ergo clears if they were smoother than they are now.

According to OP, it is not T1 recolored, but rather,

While generally I agree, there are definitely tactiles that I just flat out dislike (blueberries, halos).
