How is the weight of the zealios 65g vs something like gat browns? I understand the 65g is bottom out weight, not actuation weight?
A good reference, quoting https://kbdfans.cn/collections/zealios-switches/products/zealio-swtich-tactile:
Tactile feeling for the different weights:
- 62g Zealios - Smooth and light, a bit heavier than MX Browns in weight, but offer a much smoother experience with a larger "one smooth motion" tactile bump feedback when compared to MX Browns. Lightest variant Zealio.
- 65g Zealios - Smooth, long, drawn out tactile bump in the middle. Nice cushion during bottom out.
- 67g Zealios - Smooth, "crisp & responsive" tactile bump feeling near the top (this is due to the spring design, all Zealios share the same stem), more cushion during bottom out than 65g Zealios.
- 78g Zealios - For those that prefer a slightly lighter MX Clear, but want a smooth and apparent tactile bump. From beginning to end, the spring is heavier than all other Zealio variants
I just installed 65g zilents v2 instead of khail Browns. I haven’t tested gat browns, my understanding is that it’s the same as cherry brown... I preferred the khail browns over the cherry brown and although I’ve only used the zilents for a half hour, I really think they’re great. It feels heavier than the khails brown, definitely more than the cherry brown, but tu me it’s a good thing since the bump starts right up and then the resistance lowers before you bottom out. Couldn’t help but bottom out with cherry brown, but with the zilents, i can feel the bump and at last get a real tactile feel and hope I won’t bottom out as much as I used to. Hope this helps since zealios and zilents are supposed to have the same tactility.
