Great Authentic Switches

I have a Keychron Q1 keyboard with a white plate and all white keycaps. This model that's all white comes with only the Gateron Phantom Red, Blue, or Brown switches as a choice. I wanted an all white keyboard, but I hated how the RGB was washed out with the red color due to the switches being Phantom Red. This is why I purchased the Gateron Red Pros. This website gives a really good price in comparison to for example. It's cheaper here and for the authentic thing. My understanding was that the Gateron Phantom Reds are the exact same as the Gateron Red Pros, but when I installed the Red Pros, I was pleasantly surprised that for some reason the switches were slightly quieter than the Phantom Reds. Both are pre-lubed at the factory so I don't know, but I am satisfied. I like the way they feel when typing and finally the RGB is not washed out in red. The switches came in a nice tin box with foam surrounding the sides on the inside to prevent the switches from being damaged during transport along with a switch puller. Thanks SwitchCaptain!

These switches are amazing! I have never felt a smoother switch. Albeit I don't take apart my switches to lube them but these being pre lubed is night an day in comparison to my four other keyboards using kahil box reds, cherry MX reds, regular gateron red, and Logitechs red switches. Soo smooth and slightly lighter to push compared to the switches mentioned above. I put them in my gamakay LK67 with the 8008 key caps. I would highly recommend these switches to any linear lovers.
On a side note a couple switches did have some bent pins but that's to expect

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.
