So what's the deal with these as opposed to gateron black/yellow/tealios? Just the color or is there some other thing?

Housings are stock Gateron housings. The stems are similar to Tealios. Springs are gold, feel better IMO. Mostly though I think the hype is the color. They look and feel awesome.

How smooth are these compared to lets say  Gateron yellow, Because are the stems just a recolor of the other gateron linear stem?

Edit: Nevermind not a new mold.

Hey, I've since desoldered the Tangerines from my Singa (referred to here) and put them in another board. I've also lubed, and spring-swapped my remaining Tangerines and put them in my E6.

I have still not had any instance of binding with these switches. And I'll say again, I find it very hard to believe I just happened to get a batch of 150 perfect switches. I'm gonna lean towards just bad luck in your batch.

Ive had this same issue with Gateron switches in the past. I hadnt heard about it in a while so I thought they fixed it but it seems it still pops up with some switches. Its the main reason I avoid Gateron-made switches.

For reference I had the issue while using GMK and DSA keycaps.

gateron stems are what cause most of the wobble, the housings are fine as far as fitment in contrast to cherry. Tangerine stems are basically tealio stems, so they wobble less than normal gats.

I did my experiment with Tai-Hao Cubic bottom-row caps.

Interestingly, I can't replicate the issue with the very same switches I took that video on -- they're still in the tester where I put them originally. I'll experiment a little more. It also didn't happen in every switch, so maybe I just got a weird sample.

I have a question i am tempted to get them because of the stem color to put it in a cherry housing. But why are the prices so high for a recolored gateron linear switch with a costum spring? Like the gateron black switches stock are going for 0,20 cents a piece on KBDfans but these tangerinese go for 0,60 cents for each switch. Any reasoning why it's so high?

Small run = higher prices. Gat blacks are manufactured by the millions. These are manufactured in the tens of thousands. We have to pay a premium.

Not a new mold.

So it is Tealios stems with different color in Gateron housings and custom springs?

We're definitely paying a premium considering the China GB was 375rmb for 150 switches :))

Nice! Hopefully the video can help people decide.

I really enjoy using these switches -- I think the milky colored plastic is much softer than the traditional clear Gateron top which ends up softening the sound a lot. The result is something really close to a silenced switch from Cherry when lubed with 205g0 from Switchmod.

Ya, in my experience they are pretty quiet without the mushiness and weird travel of silent switches. Housings are good even if they are standard gat housings. The stems are tealio stems anyways. Like is it pricey? Yes. But is it terrible? No. For switches with stems from the tealio mold and better housings as well as cheaper, they are good.

Can someone provide a type test? I'm a little confused as to what these switches are different from Tealio beside the springs :/

housing/price

&

Did someone already made a build with these? I would love to cash out on non wobbly smooth like gateron switches but i was always disappointed everytime i ordered something new.

not mine btw

Thanks for sharing this! Ive added a link to the type test on the product page.

As of now 10840 / 20000 limit have been claimed

Nice! Hopefully the video can help people decide.

I really enjoy using these switches -- I think the milky colored plastic is much softer than the traditional clear Gateron top which ends up softening the sound a lot. The result is something really close to a silenced switch from Cherry when lubed with 205g0 from Switchmod.

Thanks for the video, zekkin! I posted it on the site.

Are you sure that Tealios have a different stem and that this stem is used?

nothing against these as they're more about looks than anything, but hopefully they're better than real hirose switches.  they're terrible.


Lol. Theyre worlds better than the OG HiRose. They just look like them.
