This is a great deal for anyone wanting to experiment with different springs. I just signed up for two orders, getting all six weights.

Someone told me that to replace springs you would have to solder, but couldn't I just pull the tops off of the switches and put in the new springs(my switches' tops can be easily pulled off)?

if you already know you're able to open up your switches without desoldering them, you'll be fine. Not all top plates allow this, and in those kinds of keyboards you would have to desolder the switches.

If your switches are PCB mounted without a plate holding them in, then yes this is true. If there is a plate, you can only open the switches if there are cut outs on the left and right of the switch. You may also only open gateron or cherry switches this way. Kailh and Outemu switches cannot be opened while soldered to a board. They have a different closing clip from the Gats and Cherry's.
It is possible sometimes to force a switch open accidentally, but you will have a very hard time putting it back in if you have a plate. The only 100% guaranteed way to open a switch on a plate mount is to desolder it from the PCB first.

So what these do is let you change the actuation force of A switch but not the switch style, without having to swap the entire switch?

Yes. Though you will need to open the switch, which depending on your keyboard may be hard or easy. These are especially useful if you are building a keyboard from scratch and therefore have all your switches off the board and easy to open.

I'm not sure how useful this drop is at this price. I can already order similar springs for 0.04$/ea on AliExpress in any quantity I might need.

US vendors are typically in the 10-15 range for 100 springs, so these are reasonable, working out at around 5.55 per hundred springs.

I think these would sell much better if they were explicitly listed out in bottom out weights as has become the standard everywhere else. It's very hard to compare these spring weights against competing but well known ones for the Sprit style springs that OCo sells for example.
This leads to reluctance as it's difficult to comparison shop.

What I'm confused about is why it's different for different switch types. I've never seen that before.

My guess would be that they're taking into account the extra force needed to overcome the tactile bump for the clicky switches, I can't think of any other reason why it would be listed that way. Someone by all means correct me if I'm wrong.
I agree though, it is really confusing and it would be nice if things were clearer in the description.

You can get gold plated springs for cheaper than this and shipped in a day. Just not worth it.

Where? Keep in mind this is a three pack, it's not for a single set.

Is there a fundamental difference between the linear and the clicky springs?

oh okay, and the second weights listed (on the right) is the bottom out weight correct?

Yep, 1st weight is what the switch will activate at & the 2nd is the bottom out force!

Hi, I have a keyboard with mx clears but I find them slightly too hard, I prefer the blues strength(but not the sound), which would be the best?

I like 65g bottom out springs and a good quality lube like MechLube2. The tactility becomes amazing and the fatigue goes away. Lighter springs in clears have the chance of not being strong enough to return.
