Identify the switch

I been looking all over the wiki but i simply cant identify or understand this mechanical switch.







Is the round thing to make the key travel extremely short?

Those are nice switches. Really sharp, well-defined tactile/click point and they feel just as (if not more) solid than MX blues.
keyboards!

It's the Noppoo Choc Pro 'custom' switch? Is it futaba? I remember seeing that keyboard and it looked to work similar to the btc style foam and foil, but with a rubber contact over pcb instead.

I thought the choc pro was cherry MX like the choc mini. I don't have one, so I can't verify that.

I looked it up on the wiki, which linked to two reviews, One with cherry mx brown, and one in blue.

There was some other non MX too. Someone posted about it on here before, sometime in the summer.

I have an old chicony board with these switches. They feel like blues for the most part.

I have a Choc Pro and mine is definietly Cherry MX brown.  (I've already changed the keycaps.)  They're really nice feeling browns though, they still have that new keyboard feel :)
Filco Majestouch-2 with Cherry Corp. doubleshot keys - Leopold Tenkeyless Tactile Force with Wyse doubleshots - Silicon Graphics 9500900 - WASD V1 - IBM Model M 52G9658 - Noppoo Choc Pro with Cherry lasered PBT keycaps - Wyse 900866-01 - Cherry G80-8200LPBUS/07 - Dell AT101W - several Cherry G81s (future doubleshot donors) (order of current preference) (dang I have too many keyboards, I really only need two)
