What switches is everyone getting? Only have had experience with Cherry, but am intrigued by Halo and Kailh offerings.

Barebones probably, I have a pack of 100 Kailh pro purples and another 100 65g zealios without a board.
You might wanna have a look at reviews of the Halos and new Kailhs before you make your decision.

I have been, for hours >_<. I‘m leaning toward Kailh in general, and box pale blues specifically. Or maybe box whites. Or bronzes.... :P

I doubt you'll like the Halos then since you're in to clicky ones. The Kailh click bars are definitely intriguing and I'm probably getting the bronze (just for the click bars) over the golds in a kickstarter project I've backed.

Barebones. Taking the BOX Navies out of my K-Type and putting them into the CTRL. Going to put BOX Pale Blues back into the K-Type.

Going with Cherry Brown + RGB for now. Later I will swap for the new Kailh Purple Boxes with RGB.

I'm conflicted. I'm used to Cherry MX Red and Gateron Red for typing and I like the feel of them, but I do bottom out frequently. It seems like the Speed Silvers are too light activation even for me. All the other ones seem to be tactile or clicky, so I'm leaning towards barebones. But then, I have no experience with the Halo Trues, maybe it's worth just giving them a try and seeing if I like them and then swapping later if I don't. :D

If you're into clicky switches, those are some great options! I picked up some BOX Pale Blues and they are excellent all around. Although I'm hearing the BOX Jade and Navy are even better, which is why if I'm picking up this board, I'm getting it barebones.
