How does this variant compare to other Gateron Yellow Switches?

We tested a number of lubed and filmed Gateron Yellow switches and ranked them according to our preferences:

  1. KS-3X47 (Milky Top, Black Bottom) - Thockiest

  2. KS-3 (Black Top, Black Bottom) - Smoothest

  3. KS-3X1 (Milky Top, Milky Bottom) - Scratchiest

  4. KS-8 (Clear Top, Black Bottom) - Meh-est

KS-9 (Clear Top, White Bottom) was not tested.

Should these switches be lubed?

Yes, we highly recommend lubing these switches to remove their stock scratchiness. We found using Krytox 205g0, or a lube of similar viscosity, to provide the best feel and sound.
