Zilanda or similarly named silent panda switches

Alright so I have been looking into getting some pandas together for a good panda tactile, but also need a silent board. So the question is has anyone done any modding to make a zilent stemmed panda switch? I'd love to know how they sound and feel especially compared to stock zilents/zeal/mod etc.
Also gonna have to die a little to wait for the pandas r2 rip me and the wallet.

I was abducted by Zilents back in 1986, and there were DEFINITELY pandas on the observation tables suspended in front of me, but due to the Zilent/Zeal war there was never any silence.

Is a Panda like a MX White and Black hybrid somehow?

I think pandas are made by BSUN so you can use those for housing and instead of using Zilents you could use Aliaz switches. If that actually works it will be much cheaper

Its the switch sold by invyr or on 1upkeyboards I think as well, but they have good contacts and low wobble on them, making them good for tactile stems and not the linear stems originally in them. So my goal is to learn about the zilent stem in them for that great tactile and silent combo.

That's why BSUN browns are great tactiles as they share a housing with panda switches

A MX Clear stem with a MX Black spring used to be called panda clears. A heavy version of Ergo clears.

yeah I thought that they were different though, at least that is what pete said on reddit with the update on the round 2 of panda switches.

Yeah, yeah I seem to recall that. Thanks.
