I was thinking of picking this up until I saw the discussions and that the Zeals and Teals might be counterfeit, on any case I've got a question: So far I've only used linear switches. I'm currently using an RK RG987 at work with Greetech reds (which feel sort of cheap) and a GMMK TKL with Kailh Pro Burgundys at home, which I prefer as they're heavier and feel more premium. Thing is - I'm in the midst of swapping my RK61's switches to the Burgundys and I wanted to swap my RG987's switches as well, this time to something more tactile. I'm looking for a tactile switch that resembles the Burgundys in terms of actuation point and force other than the Pro Purple (as I don't seem to find a lot of information about it out there), maybe even slightly heavier at around 60g (like the zeals for example). Any suggestions? Thanks!

The possible fake is only 1 out of 72 switches. I personally think you will still get a good feel out of what's available on the switch market by getting this. I bought this product recently (I wrote another comment on it) and I found it a really good value. I only got it a week ago and I've already learned a lot about what different brands are like and what I like. I actually discovered I have more preferences than I originally thought.

The thing is - KBDFans is selling the same board on AliExpress for the exact same price and free shipping (which means it'll probably arrive like a couple of weeks before this drop. Did you get any ephanies on switches you thought you know how they compare? As it seems - there is a tactile switch tester from KBDfans on Ali as well, and I just picked that up. Wondering if I should pick up something else alongside even though I really like the Burgundys.

I don't really have any other switch testers, this was a big swoop in getting all of them at once. So I hadn't tried any before. I was surprised that I liked the Novelkeys Cream linear so much and I like the Hako tactiles. I really like the switch they gave me in place of a tealio, which seems to be a Zilent. There are a lot of switches I think I could like from the tester, some stand out more than others, but what I really learned is how to feel the minute difference between brands. I agree you can get it faster elsewhere, you just seemed discouraged by the one switch being an issue with the product in general. This is a good price for the product but no way could I wait 3 months for it (which is why I bought mine from kbdfans directly earlier this month).
