We’re stoked to be able to offer a massive variety of switches provided to us by Infinity Key! Developed by the Infinity Key Team, the Cow switches are a thocky linear switch featuring four different housing colours, and two stem options: POM or UHMWPE! Each of these have a slightly different travel distance, but both feature a signature long stem resulting in a great pop on the downpress, slightly more muted on the UHMWPE stem. Both are really smooth, with the UHMWPE stem having the slight edge due to the properties of the plastic.
Based on experience with testing these switches, the POM stem benefits slightly more from being lubed, whereas the UHMWPE stem doesn’t require it. We still recommend lubing the housing and spring to maximize smoothness and minimize plastic-on-plastic contact. As the switches do not suffer housing wobble and only a small amount of stem wobble, TX films did not see a noticeable effect and thus would not be necessary for the Cow switches either.
