These sit nice in between the typical "red" and "black" weighted switches, but with nicer feeling springs, making them not quite similar to gateron yellows. When you first get these, they will feel way more scratchy than gateron milky yellows or even cherry mx red. It is simply because of the materials used. The stems are POM with PTFE powder mixed in. After even a single day of use, this issue goes away. If you then lube them, you'll have a very nice switch. So it is probably a good idea to use these in a hotswap board first. The sound of pom on pom feels great. The bottom out and spring return feels very good, and unlike many other linear switches.

these are very nice in both sound and the smoothness is also very good they arent smooth but after you break then in they are smooth. Some switches have switch stuttering. I made Screams with these: Cream stem KS3 gateron top 78g Durock spring Seal bottom housing TX 1.5mm 205g0 on stem and spring and its my new fav. switch there is by a long shot.
