  • A New Casing Mold (Polycarbonate)
  • Being Pre-Lubed at the Factory
  • An Enhanced Pro-Stem (POM)

Amazing Switches, Better Customer Service

For starters my base is a GMMK 104 key from Glorious. I started out with the stock gateron browns, and realized that they were surprisingly loud compared to my old board with cherry browns, so I decided to order some Kailh Box Silent Browns, from this site. I really really did not like them. Sure they were crazy silent, but they also had a really high actuation force, heavy bump, and were very mushy and scratchy, worse than a lot of membrane boards honestly. So I decided that I wanted to return them, SwitchCaptain had amazing customer service throughout the return process and also had fast shipping and email response times. Now onto these switches, I have never owned a board with linears before and lemme say that I love it so far. I have previously used Otemu Blues and Cherry Browns, and when trying reds in the store I always found them to be far too light for my taste. Well they are very light, but they are also the most buttery smooth switches that I have used. I will probably have to use the board for a week or so to get used to the weight of the switches, but once I do I know that I will love it a lot. If they had pro yellows I may have gone for those, but they didnt. They seem really well lubed for factory switches and also very consistent with each other. They are quite silent and have a great sound to them with this board. I would highly recommend the Pro Reds and Switch Captain as a company.
