1 Akko Jelly Blue Type: Tactile Travel: 4.0 ± 0.3 mm
Tactile force: 60gf ± 5gf

A tactile switch with a light blue, translucent housing.
There is a sharp mountain of tactile at the beginning of pushing, and then it has a unique tactile feeling with a little resistance. * Refer to the published force curve .
Since the stem has a BOX structure, it also has a sense of stability when pressed for a long time.

2 Akko Jelly Pink Type: Linear travel: 4.0 ± 0.3mm
Actuation: 45gf ± 5gf
A cute linear switch with a light pink color.
The actuation point is set to 1.9 mm, which is rather shallow.
The stem has a BOX structure and is suitable for applications such as modifier keys that are kept pressed.
3 Akko Jelly White Type: Linear travel: 4.0 ± 0.3mm
Actuation: 35gf ± 5gf
Semi-transparent linear switch.
The actuation is 35gf, which is a fairly light category.
Please compare it with the lubricated one.
4 Akko Jelly White --Lubed Type: Linear
Travel: 4.0 ± 0.3mm
Actuation : 35gf ± 5gf

Semi-transparent linear switch.
This is a factory-lubricated switch that uses Krytox's GPL105 and GPL205G0, which have a reputation for smoothness.
I would like you to experience the effect of Lubu in comparison.

5 Akko Lavender Purple --Lubed Type: Tactile Travel: 4.0 ± 0.5mm
Tactile force: 50gf ± 5gf

A tactile switch with an eye-catching bright purple color.
The play to the mountain of tactile is 0.5mm, which is a unique feature. * Refer to the published force curve .
It is suitable for people who want to get rid of play and like a sharp touch.

6 Akko Matcha Green --Lubed Type: Linear Travel: 4.0 --0.3mm
Actuation: 50gf ± 5gf

As the name suggests, a green linear switch like matcha.
The actuation force is also standard and is easy for many people to use.
It is lubricated with a well-established lubricant and is highly satisfying even when used as it is.

7 Azure Dragon Switch (Not lubricated) Type: Tactile Travel: 4.0mm
Tactile Force: 63gf

A tactile switch featuring a purple bottom and a translucent blue top housing.
While stronger tactiles are becoming more popular, it is a relatively small pile of tactiles.
Since the spring is also a two-stage one, I would like you to actually compare the switch.

8 Bouquet Switch

Type: Tactile Travel: Approximately 3.4mm
Tactile Force: Approximately 70gf

A slightly pinkish tactile switch reminiscent of white petals.
A switch with many features, such as a strong and long pile of tactile and an actuation point of about 2.4 mm (the point where the switch operates).
In particular, actuation points are directly linked to erroneous keystrokes, so you need to actually check them with the keyboard.

9 Durock POM Linear Piano --Lubed

Type: Linear travel: 4mm
Actuation: Private Bottom Out: 63.5 g f

A switch with a chic impression due to the combination of glossy black and white like a piano.
Durock's linear switch features a smooth stroke, but this switch is especially smooth.
The lubricated Lubed version is one step higher in overall smoothness, lower bottoming noise, and even a small spring-sounding noise.
10 Durock POM Linear Piano --Unlubed Type: Linear
Travel: 4mm
Actuation: Private
Bottom out: 63.5 g f
An unlubricated version of the Durock POM Linear Piano.
First, compare it with the lubricated version.
If possible, try lubricating yourself and see which one is better and whether the effect is commensurate with the working time.
11 Durock POM T1 Sunflower --Lubed Type: Tactile
Travel: Approximately 3.4mm
Tactile Force: Approximately 70gf
As the name of Sunflower, the bright yellow stem is an impressive switch.
It has a sharp and strong tactile feel that is characteristic of the T1 series, but the POM housing adds smoothness and gives it a slightly new feel that is different from the normal T1.
The lubricated Lubed version is slightly lubricated so as not to reduce the tactile feeling, but it is definitely effective, so please compare it.
12 Durock POM T1 Sunflower --Unlubed Type: Linear travel: 3.6 ± 0.3mm
Actuation: 50 ± 10gf
An unlubricated version of the Durock POM T1 Sunflower.
First, compare it with the lubricated version.
If possible, try lubricating yourself and see which one is better and whether the effect is commensurate with the working time.
13 Durock Silent Linear Dolphin Type: Tactile Travel: 3.8 ± 0.6mm
Actuation: 45 ± 10gf
A switch with a refreshing impression of a bright blue combination with a clear housing.
Quietness is achieved by a unique method of attaching the silicon ring to the side rail of the stem.
The bottoming sound and return sound have been reduced while maintaining the smooth feel of a Durock linear switch.
14 Feker Holy Panda --Factory Lubed Type: Tactile Travel: Private Tactile Force: Private A switch that imitates the famous custom switch Holy Panda.
Since the characteristics of HolyPanda are inherited as they are, the keying sound of the stem hitting the bottom housing is characteristic.
I want you to put on a keycap and hit the keys to experience the feeling of hitting the keys.
15 Gateron blizzard Tactile switches Type: Tactile Travel: 3.4mm
Tactile Force: Approximately 60gf

A linear switch with a pure white stem and a gray housing.
It feels standard for a strong tactical switch, but when it bottoms out, a fairly loud sound and impact are transmitted to your fingers, so please try it with a keycap.

16 Gateron Box CJ Linear Switches Type: Linear travel: 3.4mm
Actuation: Approximately 45gf

A linear switch featuring a dark blue color and a box-shaped stem.
Since the actuation point (the point where the switch operates) is 1.2 mm, it tends to react slightly sensitively to keystrokes.
In particular, actuation points are directly linked to erroneous keystrokes, so you need to actually check them with the keyboard.

Gateron BOX Ink Black Switch Type: Linear travel: 3.4mm
Actuation: Approximately 60gf
A linear switch featuring a black translucent housing and a box-shaped stem.
As with the Box CJ switch, the actuation point (the point where the switch operates) is 1.2 mm, so be careful.
The minor difference from the CJ switch is that the spring is black-plated. (CJ switch is gold plated)
18 Gateron BOX Ink Pink Switch Type: Linear
Travel: 3.4mm
Actuation: Approximately 50gf
A linear switch featuring a pale translucent pink housing and a box-shaped stem.
As with the Box CJ switch, the actuation point (the point where the switch operates) is 1.2 mm, so be careful.
The minor difference from the Box Ink Black switch is that the spring length is slightly shorter.
19 Gateron Oil King Linear Switches Type: Linear travel: 4.0mm
Actuation: Private

A linear switch featuring a black body and exciting naming, which is rare nowadays with many colorful switches.
As the name suggests, it is characterized by the oil-based lubricant applied at the factory, and because it is still lubricated, it has a very smooth stroke.
However, care must be taken when storing as abundantly applied lubricant may leak out.

20 Green snake switch Type: Linear Travel: Private Actuation: Private A linear switch with a combination of dark green and light green that is easy on the eyes.
It has a long spring of 20 mm and boasts a smooth stroke without lubrication at the factory.
Compare it with the Durock POM Linear Piano, which has similar characteristics, and explore the difference in feel depending on the material and the length of the spring.
21 Poseidon switch Type: Linear Travel: Private Actuation: Private

A linear switch that expresses the sea by combining deep blue and light blue.
Its major features are that the stem is very long and the spring is a 3-stage type (spring whose number of turns is changed in the middle).
Especially for the short stroke and keying sound due to the very long stem, please try wearing a keycap.

22 Tecsee Blue Sky Switch --Linear Type: Linear Travel: Private Actuation: Private

A switch with a soda-flavored ice-like color.
There is a tactile type with exactly the same color.
It uses its own HPE as the housing material, and claims to be smoother than existing materials.
The spring is also a gold-plated two-stage spring, and it is a switch that you can see the feelings everywhere.

23 Tecsee Blue Sky Switch --Tactile Type: Tactile Travel: Private Tactile Force: Private Tactile version of "Tecsee Blue Sky Switch --Linear".
Like the linear version, the housing material is characteristic, and the tactile switch feels smooth.
Travel and Tactile Force are private, but are you aware of Holy Panda? Characterized by the strength of the tactile, bottoming sound and short stroke.

24

Tecsee Ice Milk Switch / Tactile Type: Tactile Travel: 3.8mm
Tactile Force: Private

A tactile switch with an orange-yellow stem in a translucent housing.
Similar to the Tecsee Blue Sky Switch, the material is characteristic, and UHMWPE is used for the top housing and UPE is used for the stem.
Unlike the Tecsee Blue Sky Switch-Linear, the stem does not hit the bottom housing and has a deep stroke.

25 Tecsee Ice Mint Switch / Linear Type: Linear travel: 3.5mm
Actuation: Private
The only cool linear switch in KEY SWITCH SELECTION Vol.2 that is transparent to the stem.
The transparent stem is made of a material called UPE, which provides sufficient smoothness even without lubrication.

Staff comments

Vol2 of the switch sample set that covers the recently released switches to some extent.
The pedestal of the switch is 8mm acrylic, so there is no rattling, and the feel does not differ depending on the mounting location, so you can concentrate on the test firmly.
The acrylic on the pedestal is also highly transparent and beautiful on the desk as it is, so I think it's fun to click when you have a little time or want to calm down.

How to use the switch tester

Here's a little advice for anyone trying to choose a new keyboard switch with this switch tester.
Instead of clicking directly on the switch shaft with this tester, please try it with the keycap attached.
If you don't wear the keycap, you may be worried about the rattling that you didn't care about, or you may feel that the tactile feeling is different.
Depending on the profile (shape) of the keycap, the sound may be heard differently, so if possible, it is more accurate and satisfying to wear the keycap that you actually want to use.
Also, if possible, it is better to attach rubber feet to the four corners so that you can concentrate on the test because there is no reflection of vibration from the desk.

Switch test points

After attaching the keycap and attaching the rubber feet to the four corners, it is finally the switch test.
The points of the switch test are summarized below.
You can feel the difference more by checking each point rather than hitting it casually.

  • Try to hit as usual
  • Try to hit hard
  • Try to hit it weakly
  • Try hitting with another finger
  • Try pushing the end of the keycap to make a stroke
  • Check the glare by pressing the corner of the keycap with your finger without pressing it.
  • Shake the keycap while pressing it to check the glare.
  • Check the glare with a long key of 1u or more

When evaluating the switch, pay attention to the following points.

  • Is it a weight that can be pushed comfortably?
  • Is it smooth?
  • Isn't there a sound that you care about (close your ears)?
  • Is the glare (before and while pressing) acceptable?
  • Does the strength of the tactile suit your taste?
  • Does the bottoming sound suit your taste?
  • Is the return sound acceptable?

By paying attention to the above and testing, you will be able to find a switch that suits you.
I think there are other points that I value, so please try them out.
