I've noticed that on my Kailh Speed Bronze that keystrokes sometimes get sent before I actually hit the actuation point (meaning the audible 'click'). Will this occur with these switches as well?

Yes, however the phenomenon of accidental actuations while resting your fingers on the keys will not happen due to the heavier spring
I highly doubt it but is it going to go lower than 17 bucks US? Or is that the lowest?

$16.99 is the lowest for this drop.

Thanks much.
So how would the blue ones compare to the Kailh Speed Bronze switches? Same travel distance? Is the blue a "linear switch with a clickbar"? The force graph looks like it is similar to the Speed Bronze but I am not sure.

I have the Kailh speed bronze and wanted the same thing but with heavier springs. I like the speed bronze because the bump is much less notable than on a Cherry MX Blue.

It’s the same switch as the Bronze only with a heavier spring and a different colored stem.

Oh cool - thanks!
Woah shipping to Ontario, Canada is $15?!
What is the difference, in feel and use, between the "speed heavy switches" and the "box heavy switches"? (I am primarily interested in the Burnt Orange Switches). Also, I have Halo Clears and Kailh Copper speed switches (which are both great) that I type on frequently if anyone can make any comparisons.

Box switches have a longer travel distance than speeds. Speeds actuate at 1.1mm, where as box actuate at around 2mm

In addition to Upsidedownportal, they're super stiff, very little play going on when it comes to keywobble. I build a friend's keyboard using burnt oranges, and oh good god they're super stiff and very enjoyable. I'd say 10/10
Couldn't resist these latest Burnt Orange babies ; )

I've got Pale Blue Box switches coming in next year, so these will be interesting in trying out and making comparisons.
With NovelKeys associated with this drop, I'm reassured that the items ordered will be delivered. They've always been a trusted vendor for me. I'm never again entering a drop for Kaihl switches if they're solely sponsored by Massdrop (see: box switches fiasco here - https://www.massdrop.com/buy/kaihua-box-switches/talk ).

It's honestly pathetic!
Force travel diagrams are now in, cheers!
I’m used to cherry browns, how does the weight compare to the burnt oranges? Would it get tiring after a while ?

The bump is very VERY pronounced, I've only used them for a short period of time after setting up a friend's board, and I have to say they're super enjoyable, much higher tollerances compared to cherry and the actuation distance honestly makes them nice to have at this weight, any lighter and I think they'd be too light. Your fingers may get tired a bit faster but think of it this way. It's like weight training for your fingers. :P
22$ shipping to Belgium, for real guys? What are these made of, oak?
