The Gateron X mold is a provable, completely brand-new bottom housing mold. Each bottom housing comes with an X engraving on the bottom as well as polished interiors where the stem contacts the housing.
Polishing reduces surface roughness, decreasing the friction coefficient of the material. This leads to a smoother contact between the stem and the bottom housing without any lube.
For this initial run, Gateron X comes in the classic nylon-blend milky top, nylon black bottom, and bright yellow POM stem. These stems differ from the traditional Gateron Yellows and are from the Gateron Pro line-up. These stems were also polished prior to this production run.
Materials: Nylon-blend top, nylon bottom, POM stem
50g actuation, 65g bottom out, stainless steel spring
No factory lube
The polished areas make it slippery to grip, this is not factory lube but rather the smooth polished surface.
The polished surface also makes oil-based lubricants less effective. Higher viscosity lube is suggested, e.g. 205g0 or 205g2.

Great, but imperfect.
Great switches, but if you already own broken in milky tops I wouldn't pick them up. Really smooth, better than regular JWKs. Tolerances aren't terrible, but I would film nevertheless. In my order of 100x, switches vary slightly in smoothness, so cherry picking them isn't a bad idea. With all that out of the way, definitely the best Gateron yellow variant out there as of this review. If you enjoy milky top sound signature and value smoothness you will love the gat x.
