These are basically Gateron Ink Blacks, except recolored to match the colors of GMK Baltic. The consistency of my switches (70x) is fine, but very likely varies per batch. If you're looking for the feel and sound of Gateron Ink Blacks, but don't like their look (and do like this one's look) or are looking for switches to match GMK Baltic, these are a good alternative. The switches generally feel very smooth, even when making offcentered keystrokes. I found no noticeable binding either while doing so. There is a little stem wobble present, but not that much. The housing is pretty tight and I don't think they need films (maybe very thin ones at most). The springs are a little pingy and crunchy stock, but those issues will be resolved after lubing. The sound of Gateron Inks is often referred to as 'thocky'. However, I think it's better to describe them by mentioning their pitch and volume. In my experience, these switches sound relatively low pitched, and are medium volume (compared to other linear switches). These switches are a bit on the expensive side (€7,50 per pack of 10 switches. Same price as regular Gateron Inks), so I wouldn't recommend these to entry level enthousiasts.
