I'm not sure if HaaTa has tested any of the linear Gateron switches, but I can give you my impressions. Gateron linear switches are very smooth. Probably smoother than vintage MX Blacks (though again, my testing is based on feel, not hard science), but I find their spring weight to be a little lighter that I would like it to be, and they are more wobbly than MX switches (which probably contributes in some way to their smoothness).Hking0036 wrote: ↑Super interesting!

Have you done gateron blacks yet? I remember people hailing them as the best linears when they first came out and I'd be interested to see how they compare.
I'm also interested to see how a spring-swapped clear compares to a brown or a zealio but that's something else entirely.
I prefer Gateron linear switches to new Cherry linears (maybe MX Pink/Silent withstanding), but like vintage MX Blacks the most.
