Well, it seems that Gateron is unwilling to produce stabs in transparent plastic, only in white/milky due to a few reasons. Also given the lack of response, it wouldn't be ideal to create two new moulds for a single run. :(

Time to work on Zealio-S (which will definitely happen).

If that means a silenced switch, you can absolutely count me in!!! Otherwise, you can probably still count me in! XD

It looks like it's a no go, there's not enough interest for the cost of creating new molds and the moq. Even though it seemed like Zeal pumped out a **** ton of switches last round that is still considered very minuscule in the eyes of Gateron.

Well, I just got my quotes in for moulds and stab prices... It's doable depending on pricing. What kind of pricing are people expecting for 1 set consisting of: 7x 2u stabs, 1x 6.25u, 1x 7u? How many stab sets are you willing to order?

*please note that stabs may either be translucent white or transparent clear depending on the final result.

Not really helpful, unless you're ready to buy hundreds of sets yourself. :p

As a minimum, I'd be willing to buy a minimum of 5 at about $20 per set. At most, I'd be willing to pay about $30 for five sets, and if it's less, I'd definitely be willing to purchase more!

I'm willing to buy 3 sets.  I would buy more but just can't right now.  It does seem like there are always people looking for stabs, but the supply comes in fits and starts.  Specifically the 6.25u.  Having a reputable store stock them regularly would help a lot of people I think.  Where could we find such a store???? :D

Update:

Even though half of me says it's not wise to go through with this project, the other half of me wants to see it come to fruition. I've decided to make it happen along with another project I'm working on. Stabs will be fully transparent. Q3 2016 - Prepare your wallets :P

Awesome! If it'll be that late, you can up my order to 8+ sets!

I didn't realize it would be happening that late, so this will give me time to save up

I'm interested.  Don't really care about transparency or whether they are screwed or not (just that it will work on all boards) (the preclipped feature is a nice timesaver though), what interests me is that they are smoother than modern stabs. 


Has anyone thought of a way to reduce or eliminate stab ringing too? It's especially nasty with a heavier spring under a 7u spacebar.

What's stab ringing?  I don't notice any of that on my boards.

I get it pretty bad on my 7u spacebar w/ PCB mount stabs w/ heavier spring, and it's worse when I flip the spacebar. Just tap on the spacebar a couple times, if it sounds clattery, that's what I'm calling stab ringing.

I don't notice it.  I use o-rings and lube the stabs, maybe that has an effect. My heaviest spring is 67g.

Interested in clear housings and purple sliders, some wires depending on pricing, I have more than enough of all of them but I'd get some if price is good. The only way to see trough and enjoy your slider colors will be having a clear housing.

Interested! I really just thinking about clear stab after ordering R2 Zealios, and VOILA! here it is, an IC of it.
My cent: please no gold wire, there's no gold (at least no utterly visible besides the Zealios spring) to match it. Just make it a simple usual silver one.

One question: Why it is Cherry one and PCB one? More firm? Cause sliders can be colored to match Zealios Switch?
Somehow I like the easiness of Costar Plate Mounted one.

And I believe Zealios-S is a silencer add-on for switches. Do you have a prize of 70 of them if I'm right?  :p

Re: [IC] Transparent Cherry PCB Mount Stabs (pre-clipped, old style sliders)

Zealio-S is a tactile hologram.  The reason it won't debut until later this year is because the stem has a non-euclidian geometry that makes it incompatible with all existing keycaps.  Manufacturing keycaps that can fit Zealio-S requires a 5-dimensional injection mold.  Zealio-S are expected to cost 50 cents each.   Because of the unique manufacturing process,  keycaps for Zealio-S are expected to cost $8 - $17 trillion,  each.  I've heard that typing on them produces a sensation of the typist's consciousness resonating with the universe.

About the stabilizers: can they be installed on a prebuilt keyboard without having to desolder the switches and remove the plate?

Probably not, unless you have a plate like the one that winkeyless uses, which is designed to do that.

Clear/Semi clear/Milky stabs and purple sliders interest +1 (and will probably be down for at least 3 sets).

Clear or purple will be just great for zealio switches as many have mentioned.  :thumb:

Would these be less loose, noisy and wobbly compared to Cherry stabillizers? Because that's really what we need for stabilizers.
