Got mine today. Thanks again SuperVan! I ordered less than I needed, apparently...

Any chance that supporters of the first buy can pick up a few more? I need like 55 more than I bought, because I can't count my own switches. LOL

I would recommend anyone in the US to sign up for USPS Informed Delivery. If anything gets handed off to them, it will show up there with tracking info automatically.

This.

Mine was in my email this morning and in my mailbox this afternoon.

I got mine yesterday (North Carolina) and they are pretty much just like my OG Pandas. Holy Panda and Holy GSUS are the same in my book.

I'm not sure who's got my package in Canada now so I suppose it's a bit of a waiting game, but they're in the country so that's a good start! 3D printing a Kailh switch opener to crack all my halos open in preparation.

I don't have The Nutcracker but they're really tight and you have to apply more force (compared to other switches) to open them using the KiiBOSS. The Switchcracker (3D Printed) works better, surprisingly. I think b/c the edges are sharper. That's just my experience opening a few. I haven't done the lot yet.

Best is subjective....

Either 3204 or 205 would be my thoughts, I used 3204 on mine and can't complain.

Yeah, I use 3203, difference of the holy gsus between using 3203 and 3024 is quite marginal IMO.

Topclack posted a video recreating Holy Pandas and Quakemz talks about the lube he originally used.

Personally I'm going to use a combination of Krytox 106 on the slider and a light touch of Krytox 205 on the spring. I like using a thicker lube on the spring because there's no chance of it settling to the bottom of the switch like a less viscous lube can and it totally neutralizes any spring noises.

Good point. I currently use 3203 on the slider and Krytox 105 on the spring. I should try other mods and see how they change the feelings.

My Gsus arrived today. I was planning to use 3203 for contact leaf and stem legs and 3204 on the rest, but a vial of 3203 I opened today appeared to be separating (it wasn't when I got it a few months ago) so I'll need to experiment.

As observed in some of the review videos, Gsus housing fits slightly tighter than OG Panda housing, tight enough to turn opening with KiiOpener into an exercise. I hate to be applying same amount of force to install Gsus into polycarb plate. For now, I'll insert the switches into brass plate as-is then open the tops using switch opener from mechanicalkeyboards before stem swapping and lubing.

I don't know how tight of a fit og pandas are, but these gsus are crazy tight. At least on my E7-V1 custom. After pushing it through the plate a few times it loosened up a bit and fits like a tight switch, but man were my thumbs in pain. I recommend using a cloth to push them through.

Otherwise these are solid switches. Got em all lubed up with trybosis 3203.

Same here. Pushed them into my k-type I was sure I was going to bend ever pin because it was so hard to get on the plate. Ended up putting a penny on top and pushing with all my might. Glad Iím not the only one having this problem.

Same thing for me. I wouldn't really call this a problem though. I'd rather have a tight switch than a loose one.

I followed the original Invyr Panda IC and GB closely but I saw that the design will probably fail as a good linear switch and therefore changed my mind and didnít join...
