It also feels like it has a double bump sometimes. All in all, very odd switches. SKCM Black are a bit better in these regards.
Oh, Alps also really did that:

wiki/Alps_integrated_dome

I’ve a board of these. They’re pretty nice. Not Topre nice, but closer than MX brown could ever dream.

I had a board with integrated domes and I thought it felt terrible. I think it depends on which slider you get though.

Square slider integrated domes are awful. Round slider is much more pleasant.

I absolutely hate the integrated domes in my Tandy 200, in fact, I want to one day have an Alps-clone PCB for it to replace them. And they are the round slider version, with white sliders.

It almost seems like a Crime against Humanity posting this link, deeply sorry for my mistake.

Appreciate being informed about this, IBM name doesn't always lead to decent things being sold on Flebay :( .

I had a NIB one but it was water damaged. Kept the keycaps, they were double-shots, but it may have been a version without Win keys if that type exists. Count me in for one if anyone's willing to handle logistics...

At least within Germany it may be easier to just buy a single one for 15 euros. A group buy one would be 6 euros each + packaging, shipping costs and maybe paypal fees, not too much money to save if you consider the work for the GB-runner

Judging by the keycaps I'm thinking this *could* be Leaf Spring:

They are. Problem is that nobody knows how to convert the protocol yet.

I feared this may be the case, but I was hopeful because of the keycaps. Thank you for the great pictures!

I'd be down for one depending on the price and shipping to the US. I love trackball boards and I'd be curious to see how good those RDs actually are, taking Chyros' word for it ;)

What switches do they come with? Also, the shipping to Canada as well could be an issue.

Ordered one a few days ago and just got it today. To my surprise the switches were actually linear, not clicky like I was expecting. I desoldered one and opened it up, and it appeared to be nearly identical to KPT switches, but when comparing it side by side with one of the KPT switches I got off of AliExpress, I found quite a few differences. Most notably, it seems to be noticeably wider side-to-side, but ever so slightly shorter front-to-back. The height appears to be the same.

I'll post some pics and some more comparisons tomorrow, but it's late and I have to go pick up an IBM P70 tomorrow morning.
