Could you make a closeup disassemble picture of both linear/tactile switches? I would like to see the stems. Thanks!
Annnd ... could we vancouverites pick it up to save shipping money to buy more switch? :D
Will PM for local pickup info. Stem pics will come soon.

I'm going to spend the whole month wondering if 67g was the right call, or if I should have gone with 65g instead.

reading the reviews it sounded like 65g was the sweet spot in comparison to Ergo Clears @ 62g, due to the smoothness of Gateron.

I think I have a broken memory, because I thought I read these springs were sourced from Sprit, but I can't find that anywhere. Are these Gateron springs or are they from another source? I already have 65g gold plated Sprit springs so I went with 62g and 67g and could switch (hue hue) if necessary.

I have found 65g to be the sweet spot for me.

Last I knew, Zeal sourced his springs from Sprit and then got springs manufactured to match Sprits springs.  I could be wrong, but that is what I heard...

I used to resell sprit springs. The current gold plated springs found in Zealios are tweaked to my spec, modified and/or new, such as the 67g weight. None of them have the same coil ratio/length as sprit's.
You used sprit springs as your weight comparison though right?  Your springs will basically match sprits equivalent springs.

In for 100 of the 65g!  :D

Though, I only need 62...guess I'll figure out what to do with the other 38. I ordered more than needed as I learned my lesson with the sadster GB...

Can't wait for these. Almost bought a cable alongside this purchase but you were out of purple paracords Zeal :(

If I liked MX Browns and MX Clears, but sometimes found clears a little too heavy, and browns a little too light, which of these if any would be in between these two? 

62g or 65g. 62g would be closer to browns, and 65g closer to Clears in tactile feel.

Sometimes, though, a smoother switch feels "lighter" so that's something to consider. I would probably lean towards the 65g.

Are you only offering overnight shipping? For my area (VA, U.S.), the shipping options are overnight 10am, overnight noon, or overnight end of day and that's it.... am I just not hyped and serious enough for this buy??

Edit: will these be made available separately/specifically with the Mira GB, for those that have a slot?

Would a US proxy be cheaper? Not sure how DHL Express scales, but packages under 13 oz can be sent via First Class for like $3. Priority Mail under 1lb will be $6 or less. I'm guessing the majority of buyers will be from the US, so it could be worth looking into.

Quoted from my Vendor forum:
To everyone asking for a cheaper USA shipping method: There's only Canada Post Tracked Packet USA (4-10 business days), and it costs a mere $1-2 less. Canada Post doesn't have the low prices you guys have in the states. Good thing is overnight shipping is well worth it, trust me. ;)

For the majority of people, by end of day should be default. The guaranteed time sensitive deliveries may not be available for all parts of the state.

Zealios will be available for Mira, though I can't 100% guarantee that you'll be able to select your desired amount of switches (so it might just be a static drop down menu with 90/100 switches). There's some limitations in the back-end that may prevent me from being able to do that neatly.

I just went back and read that on the zealpc does overnight DHL in general. I've never ordered from zeal, so this is a first for me. Mea culpa.

Would it be more or less prudent to buy now and have it ship separately, or have it shipped to DrHubble along with gold stabs/etc, especially for those who want full assembly (which isn't me, but I'm sure it's going to come up)...

I'd say for buyers that want a head start with lubing their switches, then they should have the switches shipped separately. If your only plan is to drop 90 switches into the Mira, then you can wait for the Mira GB form.

Would a US proxy be cheaper? Not sure how DHL Express scales, but packages under 13 oz can be sent via First Class for like $3. Priority Mail under 1lb will be $6 or less. I'm guessing the majority of buyers will be from the US, so it could be worth looking into.

Call it silly if you will, but as this is the first community developed switch, I'd like to make each package a bit more personal ;) Plus, I wouldn't want to have another person have to sort through and pack all the USA switches. I also have my own QC in place, but wouldn't be able to watch over the proxy's. If a product is shipping out with my Vendor name on it, I'd like to be able to control it to the best I can. Hopefully you can understand from my point of view.

Completely understand, and I don't fault you at all for that decision. I guess this is a little different from most GBs, being a brand new product as well as a vendor product.

Any word on what these switches will cost after the GB is over and you stock them in your store?

That price will depend on how many are ordered, and how many extras I'll have to / will be purchasing.

I *should* be doing the same as well, but I'm impatient and want my switches sooner than later. I also plan to sell my leftover stock MX clears to recover some of the cost from the extras I ordered  :)

Well, considering MX Clears + Clear tops + customs springs already cost more than the switch before shipping, I'd say the pricing is quite reasonable when you consider the added bonuses. :)

Correct. No tight stem like MX Clears, and smoother too. Yes, you can order 110! If you prefer safe & tracked shipping to China, I'd suggest DHL shipping option.

Linears are great too. I think the hype is around the 65g/67g tactile purple switches atm. :P

Damn, guess I'll have to order some!  I was going to handwire a 60% and have some LEDs under it (acrylic plate) but I ran out of room so ordered a PCB to just make it work without the glow, but if the LEDs were in the switch it would be even better than my original plan. But I'll need a different PCB with backlight support!

Going to have enough parts for at least two full boards while still not having even made one :-[

If you can PM me your postal code, city & country, I would be able to get a more accurate DHL quote. I've covered NA & EU shipping quotes, but only a few Asian countries.

Zealios will be available for Mira, though I can't 100% guarantee that you'll be able to select your desired amount of switches (so it might just be a static drop down menu with 90/100 switches). There's some limitations in the back-end that may prevent me from being able to do that neatly.

If we got over-excited and already ordered a bunch of switches with the intention of putting them in the Mira, will you perhaps have the option to combine shipping with the Mira order once it goes live on your site?

Zealios will be available for Mira, though I can't 100% guarantee that you'll be able to select your desired amount of switches (so it might just be a static drop down menu with 90/100 switches). There's some limitations in the back-end that may prevent me from being able to do that neatly.

If we got over-excited and already ordered a bunch of switches with the intention of putting them in the Mira, will you perhaps have the option to combine shipping with the Mira order once it goes live on your site?

Send me a PM when it goes live with your order number. I'll have the switches shipped to Hubble for when he packs the Mira boards and adjust shipping.

When the thread is full of americans complaining about shipping, and tracked shipping to EU is 30$

It's only $10 shipped for me. **** the tracking.

Also, 75c per switch isn't that much. Bearing in mind the amount of customization that is involved. Custom weights, custom stem colour, clear housing, gold springs.

So you would have to buy a set of gaterons, a set of clears, a set of gold plated springs, and shipping for all three of those things, to get one of these switches. Without the kick-ass purple stems.

It's a good deal.

I literally have 100 gateron clears, 100 clear switch tops, 65 and 62 gold springs from sprit..... but those purple stems!

As someone who enjoys linear, but has never tried ergo clears, I'm very tempted to order some 65g purples from zeal...

No timeline has been set for a future buy yet. Price increase at retail will depend on how many extras I'll be ordering.

Gateron Clear bottoms were a new mould I purchased and had made. They'll exclusively be used for the "Zealio" line of switches.

So....I just took this picture. Pretty scary. Look at how rough the Cherry MX Brown stem is...

Enlarge and view full size at your own risk.

Purple Zealio (factory lubed) vs new Cherry Brown (no factory lube)


Purple Zealio (purposely wiped off factory lube) vs new Cherry Brown (no factory lube)



Yup.
