Balling on a Budget: Gateron Yellow Switch Review
« on: Sat, 25 July 2020, 11:39:28 »
Hey all,

Tired of seeing another JWK recolor every single week? Take a break with a review of an all time classic - Gateron Yellows. Not only is this my chance to get to revisit one of the very first switches that I got in this hobby, but to introduce some changes to my reviews moving forward both temporary and long term.

As always, I hope you all enjoy and would love to hear your feedback, concerns, and comments. Thank you all for the continued support  :-*

Cheers,
-Goat

With a spring weight that bottoms out around 50g of force*, as well, these serve as a nice, lightweight stock option that can easily be upgraded to higher spring weights without suffering in terms of smoothnes

Really? I thought they actuated around 50 g and bottomed-out around 65.

EDIT: Oh, you are using HaaTa's force curve.

If you read a bit further into the review, I quote HaaTa's force curve for Gateron Yellow KS-3s as the source for this number.
