FEI R2

Manufacturer: Gateron
Brand: FEI

Designed by “Chouyu”, manufactured by Gateron with a custom Matcha themed color.

Similar feel as “FF Yellow”, “Punchy” linear switches, C3 tangerines, and close to Tealios, particularly in terms of silky smoothness of the stems.

Main difference between R1 and R2 is the spring.
