Transparent Linear Switches in 3 Weights

The ocean may be deep, but it's a smooth ride all the way down. Take a dive, and chances are, you’ll see everything in front of you. The same holds true for Everglide’s new Aqua King switches. With a total travel of 4 millimeters, these linear switches have a longer round trip than most other linear options—but with the same consistent resistance from start to finish. Where they standout is in their fully transparent housings, which elegantly reflect light—much like ocean water. Other components include a stainless steel spring with a gold plate, as well as gold alloy contacts for extra durability. Choose from three switch weights to fine-tune your feel, and select from three pack sizes to fit any board.

Optional Add-On Everglide V2 Screw-In Stabilizer Set

Strong, smooth, and see-through, Everglide’s first stabilizer set was a big hit in the mech keys community. Now, the second generation has arrived with updated housings and two additional colorways. Like their predecessors, the V2 stabilizers work with MX-compatible PCBs and drastically reduce typing noise. Where they improve on the first generation’s design is in their pop-out resistance: each stabilizer features updated housings that do an even better job staying put during custom builds. Gold plating provides excellent hardness and oxidation resistance, while colorful components add extra flair to any board. With "pre-clipped” inserts to eliminate the need for feet clipping, plus specially shaped outer casings to prevent threads from stripping, these stabilizers are ready for easy installation and sustained use.

Add-On LOOP Mechanical Switch Puller

When it comes to mechanical keyboards, half the fun is swapping switches, keycaps, and components. Hotswappable keyboards are convenient ways to audition new switch types without the need to solder, but some PCBs have really stiff sockets and pins—so having a high-quality switch puller can save you a lot of time and effort. This high-quality puller from LOOP has a rubber coating for grippability and comfort, meaning you won’t have to worry about stiffness when pulling lots of switches. And the hooked, inward-curving claws reach safely and snugly around your hot-swappable or desoldered switches to give you leverage without doing damage.

Are these dry or do they come pre-lubed?

Top Answer
I got some from Taobao recently and they were pre-lubed. The factory lube job is the best of any switches that I've gotten to date. It's very good. They're a tiny bit sluggish out of the box, but...Read More

I’m still somewhat new to the whole custom keyboard market, and I’m unsure as to wether these are MX style stems or not. Could someone clarify what these are and the differences?
Feb 20, 2021
Top Answer
They are MX. The cross shape at the top of the stem, the shape of the plastic housing, and the pin layout on the underside is what makes them MX. Other switch types come in a variety of stem shapes...Read More
