I’m wanting to start on my 2nd “end game” keyboard. I’m happy with the Tenkeyless keyboard that I’ve got now, but I still think it’s a little too big. Time to try a 60% keyboard.

At the moment I’ve not got a keyboard with linear switches that I’m happy with. I’ve got a Cooler Master QuickFire TK Stealth with Cherry MX Reds but the reds feel a bit scratchy and the size is a little to big for what I want. Because of this, I’m going to try out some of the Tealios from ZealPC.

From what I’ve experienced, they’re the smoothest switch out there with the next best thing being the Kailh BOX Heavy Dark Yellow or Gateron Yellows. Only down side that I can see is the massive price hike due to them being a “premium” switch…

The other parts are going to need to match the premium option that I’m using for the switches, so a 5 degree case, brass top plate and Zeal60 PCB seem fitting for my end game 60%. Hopefully I can get them soon!

My 5 Degree case sat on my bed.
