Alpacas are smooth linear switches with gold plated 62g springs (bottom out). Colors are based on the SA Bliss colorway brought to us by Minterly.
Top housing is polycarbonate. Bottom housing is nylon. Stem is POM.
Standard Alpaca has solid dark gray housing with a pink stem.
There is no actual V2 design of these switches. Durock and JWK have produced multiple new molds in 2020 to increase production capacity. Large orders (500K+) such as this Alpaca order had Durock use multiple molds split over a multi vendor order.
Because of this, minor changes are noticable over various switches even within a single bag of switches purchased from us. We are not mixing old and new stock so please keep in mind you can notice minor differences when ordering these switches. Durock and JWK believe there is no notice in performance different.

Firstly i'd like to mention i ordered 70 and got 80 switches which i was happy about. The switches are very nice. The reason behind me rating 4 instead of 5 stars is that the 10 extra switches were all alpaca v1 not v2 so i had to go through 80 switches and sort the 10 v1's out. So basically keep an eye out and make sure you check the bottom housing of the switch. If you find a letter and not a number it means it's a V1 alpaca.

Really nice switches. Suprisingly they are not as high pitched as I thought they would be, which I really like. They have nice "pop" sound. First jwk switch that I have tried and they are really smooth even without lubing them. After placing my order I sent a mail wanting to add some lube to my order and they threw some in for free which was quite nice of them. Would recommend.
