Gateron Linjärs – Review
A properly-executed, cheap, enjoyable one-off switch variant that should be bought aftermarket for both use and collective purposes.
Linear – 65g bottom-out
/ Swedish Variant Only
/ Price – $0.55/switch
Linjärs are a pretty special switch for the value that they initially ran. At $0.35/switch, a custom, limited Gateron switch would turn a lot of heads as a runner who cares not for profits simply wants to bring pride to their home country of Sweden, while at the same time, bringing a switch to the market that is worth its value. It can no longer be obtained for that low price through vendors, now averaging $0.55/switch, but it’s still worth adding to your repertoire if you’re intending on lubing them. They are a solid, smooth linear with a nice middle-pitch sound with 3204, and a deep thock with 205g0. Without lube, though, the spring is very pingy and the switch doesn’t feel much different than other stock linears. It could benefit more from spring-swapping. At this current point in time, there has only been one production run, and none have been planned for the future, so these should be considered an exclusive switch!
