Yes, those are dreadful. Stiff, long throw, and linear.
“Right now, it’s basically the Titanic. We’re like, you know, in this in the middle of this slow sink, we have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine. And meanwhile, as I’ve said, you know, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat.”
“And I think there’s a few of us that are just saying ‘guys this is not good,’ not just for the future of the party, but this is not good for the future of this country.”

Similar, but a different slider color. I guess I was more specifically thinking Hi-Tek high profiles, which I felt for the first time recently in an old Atari 800 a coworker brought in to play around with. I did find them stiff, but they were very smooth. I prefer clickies, but I can appreciate a nice linear. I suppose the long throw doesn't bother me. When I was paying attention to the switches, the system wasn't on, so I didn't get a good feel for them in actual use.
