What is the difference between the Milky Yellow and Golden Yellow housings?

Milky Yellow comes with an unplated long spring, whereas Golden Yellow comes with a gold-plated long spring.

Gateron has not released information regarding the housing material differences to our knowledge. Aside from the colors being obviously different, both are very similar in sound and feel in our experience. Here are some possible differences we observed (please note this wasn't a very scientific test we did):

  • Milky Yellow sounds a bit deeper than Golden Yellow.
  • Milky Yellow feels a bit scratchier than the Golden Yellow (about the same once lubed).
Should these switches be lubed?

Gateron has revamped their factory lubing technique to be much better than before. We still recommend re-lubing these switches yourself using Krytox 205g0, or a lube of similar viscosity, to bring out the best feel and sound these switches have to offer.
