How does this compare with older Gateron switches?

We are extremely impressed with Gateron's new housing molds. The stem wobble has been significantly decreased, and the sound profile is noticeably deeper and thockier.

These Gateron PRO Switches comes pre-lubed from the factory, which we normally don't care for - however, we found their lubing decently consistent for a factory job.

What do the different colors mean?

Yellow switches come with a slightly heavier spring than red switches. Aesthetically, the stem color is also different.

Yellow bottoms out at ~60g.
Red bottoms out at ~55g.

What about the 3-Pin variant?

In our opinion, the 3-Pin variant looks worse, sounds and feels the same (if not worse), and costs the same, so we don't carry them. You can simply snip off the extra 2 pins if your PCB is not 5-pin compatible.

If we receive requests to carry the 3-Pin variant, we will certainly consider doing so!

Should these switches be lubed?

We always recommend lubing on your own, since lubing preferences vary per person. However, Gateron has done a good enough job here, to where the less-picky folks can get away without lubing.

These housings are tight enough to not require filming. However, adding films will alter the sound profile of your switches (again, preference).
