- Vintage MX black... because it's the best linear switch obviously!
- Retooled Cherry MX Blacks, they are as smooth as vintage blacks
- Kailh (Pro) Purple, it's a genuinly nice, tactile switch, of which there aren't too many of
- Kailh BOX white, because click bar and awesome
- Beamsprings, the switch everyone should get to try out
- Kailh Box Heavy Pale Blue
- IBMs buckling springs - click clack, click clack
- Green alps as they are a loverly linier switch, just the right weight, sound amazing and are quite smooth
- Non-Dampened SKCM Cream, although they are niche and not very known about, they feel veryyyy good. Just overall perfect
- Cherry Silent MX linears -- lovely switches when lubed and eerily quiet
- Alps SKCC Green, they are superb linear switches which are available NOS at a reasonable price (excl. shipping to EU) in the form of Pingmasters. Great weighting and really, really smooth, can't ask more from linears.
- Alps SKCM Brown, because they're currently hipster switch of the year and deserve the nomination.
- Alps SKCM Blue, one of (if not the best) best sounding switches
- jailhouse blues: an unique tactile MX-type switch, optionally very quiet, and a brilliant modding idea in the first place.
- Skcm Orange alps timeless and relatively accessible
- Kailh x Novelkey's Big Switch Blues. It helps clicky lovers like myself share the love of clickies to the rest of the world!
- I really like the Kalih Speed Bronze switches.
- Matias Quiet Click – because it carries on the Alps tradition and is a great compromise between your own touch (tactility) and the sanity of those around you (dampened up and down stroke)
- Futaba MA series for being a highly underrated and overlooked clicky switch, quite a few DT users have discovered this gem
- 30g topre, because it is seldom talked about but offers a very unique and take on one of the most well-respected switches available
- Ergo-Clears: a classic but still amazing. I like it lubed and with a 67g spring instead of a 62g classic spring.
The full results will be published at the end of the awards.
