It Lives Up to My Expectation
Everyone's expectation is different. Although I have high hope for Holy Panda, I tried to keep my expectation in check. I have not tried all the switches under the sun nor do I have all type of key caps at my arsenal; but I do have quite a few to compare. I used to like clicky heavy switches and Cherry MX Blue were my go to switch. Four out of eight keyboards I currently own came with Cherry MX Blue out of the box. Two are Gateron Blue and one was Cherry MX Brown. I don't like liner type switches, but I like tactile switches. I grew tired of Cherry MX Blue after I started comparing tactile feedback and sound signature against different type of keycaps, and numerous other switches. In my option, Cherry MX Blue performs better than all three Gateron switches (Blue, Brown, Green) I tired. There is one thing that Cherry MX Blue really irritates me. That is the ringing sound I heard across all keycaps on Cherry MX Blue when I bottom out. Every time after I press down a key and release it, it gives me this subtle ring that keeps getting louder the faster I type. But none of the switches I tried came close to overall feel and sound of Cherry MX Blue until I tried Hako switches. Only Hako Royal True sounds better than Cherry MX Blue, but it was too heavy compared to Cherry MX Blue. When I compare Cherry MX Blue to Hako Royal True, it gave me the tactile feedback and sound signature I was looking for. I want something that sound like Hako Royal True but with lighter tactile that is closer to Cherry MX blue. I knew if I can get a switch lighter tactile than Hako Royal True, but a similar but more subtle feel than Cherry MX Blue, I can retire from this hobby. At least from the key switches and PCB layouts. Then, I read about Holy Panda switch that combined two switches into one to give unique sound signature. I listened to typing tests around the Internet and checked their tactile signature against all switches. I blindly pull a trigger on 110 switches twice on Drop. One set for Kira keyboard at work and another for my GK 84 at home with some switches to spare. I have never been happier to type and hear the Holy Pandas with either SA or DSA profiles. My search for perfect switch has ended. I found my holy grail. I am more than happy with my purchase. Holy Panda has stretch the itch I was having for 5 years.

Better than I thought
I'd like to preface this with I did not open these switches up and lube them. These are stock. Everything feels fine to me, not sure why people are so upset. While I was waiting for these I ordered some yok housings with some halo trues and 68g sprit springs + 3203 lube and figured it would be the same. These were totally different and more tactile. Maybe it's the 68g sprit that made them not the same I'm not sure. I also bought some 67g zealios v2 and I don't understand how people say these are more tactile than holy pandas. Holy pandas were much better than zealios v2 for sure. I have shared my these 3 different switches with my coworkers and we are in agreement that the holy pandas were the best out of the 3. They are endgame switches for sure and I'll probably have to buy more than the 180 I bought on the first drop

Are the switches already lubed?

Unless something has changed, it quite plainly states they are not lubed from the factory. At the bottom of the description, you can see this information.

KramitThere was actually some controversy around this dealt with in the comments. While it said they do not come pre lubed, a number of us (myself included) received factory lubed switches.

LuminussThat leaves a lot open to interpretation, my question is were the switches lubed, or did some find some coating on the leaf spring? Because those aren’t the same thing. That would also depend on the batch, these were lubed when they began to be sold and they changed to not be. But almost all switches have some level of thin layer on the leaf spring, which is from the machine process, and I wouldn’t consider that lubing. plus let’s be honest, anyone who is actually into this hobby is going to open them anyway, factory lubed or not. Weather to lube or check the lube. Or film. No one even sorta in this hobby trusts a factory lubing.

Kramityesh But I think the main issue with factory lubing is just that it’s annoying. Expecting a dry as bones switch only to see it inconsistently covered in lube is pretty disheartening.

CargabaOh, I'm not arguing that at all. The facts still remain, you are going to open them one way or another. If they were lubed poorly, its just more work, which sucks. Unless you enjoy it as I do. Not particularly removing bad lube. But just the process. Gives me something to do. lol. Nice on the Linus pic. lol. I still want the Windows and Mac ones they've made for the show.

So I heard that these switches are still being factory lubed even when it says it isn't so I am kinda confused. Is it pre-lubed or stock?

I remember reading that only a certain part of the stem for halo trues is lubed, so it might be the case here too.
