Still no news? Why is Panda so expensive and people eager to spend $4 per switch happily? this is becoming madness.
Is panda+halo that good?

From what Ive read on reddit, seems like the mold? For the panda switches was destroyed after the first run. Supposedly the trial r2s have been lackluster. Hope is grim for new pandas.

Am I the only one who just likes the color of the housings?
That's the only reason I want some.

I made some "Poor man's pandas" out of milky gateron housings, but it just isn't the same.

Idk, I'm a sucker for unique switch colors.

why tf would you destroy the mold and not just give it to someone to put on a shelf somewhere?  That seems pretty dumb.

Because it wasn't that good as a stock switch, and it costs a lot of money to store things long term that you'll never use again. Literally no point keeping it.

It probably wasn't destroyed in a grand sense but repurposed, which is commonplace in China.

IMHO much better than bsun for tactility. 


Is panda+halo that good?

Worth $3/4? Absolutely not. 
Good? I prefer clear+panda or zandas but halo+panda is good, or said better is unique.  Apart memes, i see why people want to spend so much on them, it's a unique combination which produces a really unique feedback.  Not my type of switch, but really particular.

I had some 78g Zilent Pandas up until I got Box Royals through. For me, stock Box Royals were better than Panda combos (Albeit havent tried Halo + Panda). Then I lubed the Royals and they got even better. After trying this, I instantly sold all the Zilent Pandas I had.

IMO Box Royals are better and are $0.50 a switch.

I think it's a total different type of tactilty, sharp vs long tactility. 
I prefer zandas/ergopandas for royal, but royal is pretty tactile (but really different from other tactiles). Holy pandas are less tactile imho, but what makes them good is the way you feel that tactility, is really weird and particular.

Lubing them takes the edge off the sharp tactility. Also SPRiT's springs really help with the harsh bottom out. They even reduce the tactility ever so slightly.

My issue with Panda's is that they feel way more scratchy that Royals. I lubed everything and they didnt feel smoother than a stock Zealio...

I nearly purchased a pack of 70 for $105 and then backed out and waited - then the Massdrop drop was announced. Was getting kind of ridiculous for the halos.

I guess with the caveat that I don't get pestered to sell. I made my post looking for 60, he asked me if I would buy 110, I said yes, he had another offer for $20 more but said he'd sell to me since I agreed first if I'd match the other's offer, which I did. In total, including fees & paypal, I paid $180 for the 110.
