Return of v1 zealios?
« on: Sat, 19 January 2019, 11:26:58 »
Are there any plans to produce v1 Zealios/Zilents again? I really prefer the experience of v1s, the v2s are too tactile and really difficult to play games with

Why would we need a return of them? You can still buy v1's at certain vendors (ie. kbdfans)

There should still be plenty aftermarket. Have you tried that?

KBDFans does not specify which version they have, only which "round" it is.
... and they do not have Zilents.

I'm specifically looking for zilents, which KBDfans does not sell

The Zilents I can find are overpriced 78g

Like Coca-Cola Classic. Would be cool marketing. :)

Zealio V2s arent distributed in "rounds" (at least not yet). Of course it never hurts to ask them which one is which.

I also do not like the new version.  I have all the weightings in v1 and like them all (62 the least), but I don't like the hugh sharp bump in the new V2s :(

I do find the Kailh non-box browns (white bottom from Novelkeys) as well a Holy Pandas lubed are close to the old zealios in terms of bump size/feel.  That is to say, I like zealios and I like those switches as well.  The Yok switches with lubed Halo sliders also feel nice.  Less tactile but nice
