TTC Shimmer Linear Switches, sometimes called TTC Colorful Reds, provide a new and exciting typing experience. These are linear switches with a short feeling travel distance, perfect for gaming. At the same time, they provide a level of tactile feedback, but only on the bounce back.

To be honest? We love them.

The activation is at 41gf and the bottom out is at 48gf, but don't worry the bottom-out rebound is palatable. Once you start typing on these and you get into the groove this is a very fast switch.

The stem is from the TTC Gold Red line (which features an identical mold). They feature a nice convex dome lens that lets any RGB light shine through. The PA Nylon top and bottom housing have been weighted (reducing high-frequency sound and letting the percussive bottom really shine).

To truly make this a TTC linear switch, TTCs signature double coiled spring has been modified, and instead, we have a plated and lubed compressed light spring. The linear stem activation and bottom-out are closely aligned, making for satisfying, short keystrokes. The bounce back is on point.
