Anyone tried KBDFans topre ADAPTER-X mx sliders?
« on: Wed, 14 February 2018, 00:00:03 »
After a lot of research on topre to mx sliders, I came to conclusions based on what I read.

1) Nothing beats the feel of original topre sliders
2) Best one recommended are KBDFans sliders (some say lube them up as well)

However, I saw that Ali express no longer sells the original kbdfans topre to mx sliders, however the only ones I could find are these new adapter-x sliders... Anyone tried them or any reviews recommendation?

I want to use a GMK set on a Leopold FC660C

When you say tight Puddy are we talking so tight they gotta be lubed to even install them. Are we talking tighter and less wobble then the originals.

A good amount of people said the old KBDfan ones were pretty good, did you or anyone you know have a good experience with JTK sliders?

The keycap leaning happens even with Topre sliders,  if you care it you better pass topre boards or have to relax your criterion.

Bringing this one back:)

Are JTK better, rotation wise?
So far all KBDFans sliders are rotated a bit - some people can get used to it, some not.
