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.

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.

Does anyone know if this stem is actually different from regular Gateron linear stems or if it's just the same stem in a different color?

What's the difference of a Tealio stem to a Gateron stem? I have both but can't see any difference.

i don't think there's a discernable or notable difference, but i could be wrong

the main difference is the housing and spring

That's what i thought. So this switch is just a gateron with different spring. I have round 1 of them and I really like them, but Tealios are noticeable smoother.

Not trying to be a **** here but I'm really struggling to see what the value is in these switches apart from being a different colour? (which I realise is more than enough for a lot of people). From reading the thread my understanding is as follows, please correct anywhere I'm wrong:

Housing - Stock gateron

Stem - Supposedly the same as tealio which is apparently the same as stock gateron linears? I haven't tried tealios but I assumed the stem would be slightly different/tuned and Zeal would own the mould and therefore have exclusivity over its use, in the same way as Zealios. It would make sense to me however if the tealio stem is the same as a stock gateron linears as gat linears are pretty great imo.

Spring - Seemingly the only difference, custom gold

So if one doesn't care about colour, surely the sensible choice would be to buy some gat blacks or other linear colour and some gold springs?

I mean, the color kind of is the whole point. Limited edition color palet and spring. And they are still a bit cheaper than tealios. I was planning on getting another set of gateron blacks or tealios and change the springs, but these came along so why not I thought.

Totally fair enough, just wanted to be sure my understanding was right. Though this raises the question that surely tealios must be using a different housing (probably the same as zealios). So I guess there is some argument for spending more on tealios for the modified housing and I suppose the purpose of these like you say is if you want a gat black but want it to be orange + the spring. If you don't care about colour then effectively the same switch can be had for much cheaper.

Can anyone weigh in on milky bottom housings? I have read and heard from some that Gateron Milky bottom housings can be scratchy relative to their black bottom counterparts. I like both 62g and 67g and can switch between the two freely, but I enjoy the look of a milky bottom as well. Would there be any noticeable difference between the variants?

whether are not they are new parts or stock gateron parts, i believe

i've heard from a few reputable people that they're just stock gateron parts (with maybe a new spring?) in funky colors

but no way to say for sure

I hope you have a high accuracy weighing scale that would make it easier to sort, instead of counting each switch.

Hey everyone. Tangerine switches are being shipped to me today. I should have them by the end of next week, so long as customs isnt a PITA.

For those that missed it, we have limited pre-order slots available.

Offered in quantities of 10 switches. While supplies last!

Each order will receive a limited edition Tangerine sticker designed in collaboration with Qlavier, Lexick Design, and TKC.

All ship out 3days ago. Ems shipping. I just too busy have no time to write tracking number on PayPal.
As i said before everything have been shipped out. Asia order will received early than TKC order cause i ship yours directly. TKC have to wait for them to get it but i think it won't be too late. Just wait a few days. International shipping don't work on weekends.

got mine today (black bottom) and must say, i really like these. nice and smooth even stock, and just thumbing through the bag and trying a bunch of random switches they seemed to be quite consistent in terms of smoothness. lubed and spring swapped a couple and popped 'em into a dressed out wy50 and compared them to some lubed/ss'd vint blacks i have and they held their own. very eager to play around with these more and eventually put them in a board

I tried combining Tangerine with Halo True using Kustom spring named Hing 62g.
Compared to Holy Panda, it has less elasticity but smoother. Also, in my judgement the typing sound is better.

same, i like the milky top/black bottom but would gladly spring for 90 milky top/bottoms. i think early next year would be better than this year though. lol i still haven't lubed the majority of my tangerines and god knows it'll take me until next year to finally finish them all

The stock in the milky bottom was too light for me.  I used stock black bottom in my LZ CLS ms board (lubed springs only).  I really like them a lot

At first the 62g spring felt too light so I swapped them out with 68g springs. But I've since gone back to the original 62gs because they've grown on me to the point where I actually prefer them to heavier linear switches. That said, I leave 68g springs in the space bar and a couple other modifier keys so I don't accidentally press them.

Honestly I don't think they will be similar. I bought 70 Linjar but only for its colorway. My experience has been that Tangerines are smoother than a few other Gateron switches.

Not necessarily. Clear and floating key cases do exist. Even if you don't see it, sometimes people want that extra color matching for fun. It's nice to know everything matches, and you can admire it even when cleaning!

Also, the colorway can distinguish them from other switches. Most of these have non-standard springs and housings. Before Novelkeys was stocking milky tops/black bottoms, only Tangerine had it. Linjar has an all nylon housing.  Material is very important for sound.

Pretty good deal for only 10-30 cents more than normal Gaterons.

by the by... I accidentally discovered that the stock springs in the milky tangerines are pretty nifty for jailhouse mods.  For some reason, the springs (already the shorter end of mx springs) compress down really far allowing for jailhouse modded switches to have more travel after the bump. 

I'm going to say that a Gateron blue housing & stem with j-spacers (lube between to j-spacer and stem to eliminate slight click noise) and a tangerine spring is the best combo I've found for jailhouse to date.

Kinda like a short travel holy panda that has been silenced.

You can get orings that feel nearly the same, like 95% as good. https://old.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/5rf8dw/jailhouse_blues_w_orings_guide/ $13 on Amazon for a 1000 pack.

I'm sorry, I don't get it. Why buy a switch for its colorway?
It isn't seen when you have keycaps on.
