Force-graph

A force-graph is a good way to help imagine how a switch might feel to the press. Many reputable manufacturers publish such graphs, either in their documentation or in their patents.

Quotes, thoughts and opinions

Stats and figures are one thing but here are some quotes, thoughts and opinions we've been able to find from across the web regarding these switches.

An interesting switch with a pleasant sound, and a really interesting stem that unfortunately seems to be incompatible with lighter springs. Might be a great tactile option for heavy-handed typists.

These Blueberries have benefited from a one week break in period. Whether you plan to lube them or not they are ten times less scratchy in my opinion after some constant use for about a week. I believe its the pom housing slowly doing what it is intended to do.

Notes

Being an all POM switch Blueberry’s, like Creams, are pretty smooth anyway but there is some noticeable friction. A small amount of Krytox 205 Grade 0 works well on these.
