This is a long shot but does anyone here have any extra GSUS pandas they are willing to sell? I'm located in Ontario outside of Toronto. Thanks :)

Any opinions on what springs to use with these housings? The stock spring doesn't look like much on visual inspection.

If they are the same springs that YOK Red Pandas use (which considering YOKs are the same as GSUS, just a different color I'd bet they are) you're absolutely right, they're trash. When I first got my YOKs I did some messing around with swapping the stems & springs of few different switches with them. I put a YOK spring & Halo stem in a V2 Zealio housing & the YOK spring created the worst spring noise I have ever heard. Crunch or ping are woefully understating the sounds that came out that monstrosity, basically it was a very loud grinding noise! That said they did not sound nearly that bad in the YOK housings, but it did kill any confidence I have in using those springs in any switch.

Anyways the springs I used for my "Satanic Pandas" were Spirit 72g stainless steel ones & I am very happy with the feel of them. It really depends on your personal preferences on spring weighting, but for me 67g to 78g springs seems to be the sweet spot for Holy Pandas & Holy variants. :thumb:

Isn't it a given that the only thing worth using in Panda switches and clones is the housing? I've never heard of anyone using the springs or stems unironically.

OG pandas had a decent spring. Clones do not.

For OG pandas, I'd still swap them out for SPRiT 65g or 63.5g :)

I used Sprit 72g progressive springs, they turned out quite well. No spring crunch and weighting feels snappy.

I'm really curious about this.. Does the progressive spring have any noticeable advantage over the non-progressive spring?

I have the 1.1v springs, which feel the same as a non-progressive spring. The weighting at the ends are too similar to make a noticeable feel. However, the 1.2v springs have a greater difference between the actuation(I have not tried the 1.2v yet).

My comment is mainly about 72g Sprit springs being very good weight for Holy GSUS.

Do you find that there's any major difference between SS springs and gold-plated? The gold-plated look nice, but they're a fair bit more expensive and I'm not sure if the cost is truly justified.

there is no difference at all aside from aesthetic

some have claimed that gold springs will be smoother but i have seen no evidence of this either way

My switches never came, so I tried writing Supervan a PM and an email, gave him two weeks. Never heard anything. I filed a claim on Paypal about a month ago. The seller should respond and you should work out a deal with the seller. Never heard anything from Supervan. Asked paypal to escalate the claim meaning they will look into it and make decision if I get the money back. So i'm waiting for them to come back with an answer next Monday. I suggest anyone who hasn't gotten their switches to take it up with paypal.

Supervan is MIA and not willing to work things out 1 to 1 get your money back while you can.

Today was the 10 day deadline for Supervan to reply to the depute on Paypal. It seems he has not done that. So paypal will make a decision about the case on their own.

I'll update this post with that happens.

No he's not, and even if he were I would strongly advise against it because as you said he doesn't even reply to any Paypal dispute (including mine, that's why I'm writing this down I'm kinda butthurt, I've given up on the switches I just want  my money back at this point) I really wish I joined the holy pandas buy on Massdrop when this rolled out instead of giving this a try.

From my experience with PayPal you will receive your money back. If the switches do appear at a later point the seller can claim the refund back (e.g. you pay then for the switches).

My condolences. This sucks big time. As for me I'll get some YOKs I guess. Thanks for the advice.

Thanks for the update! Paypal is now looking at my case and seeing how it turned out for you makes me hopeful! I just hope there'll be some YOK left when they'll refund me! I kinda wanted to get the OG look with the white housing from the GSUS though but I think I'm past that now.
