Gateron Yellow Switches
El Classico. The good ol' budget linear switch. Super smooth with a great stock spring. Use as is or deck them out with a spring swap, lube and film job.
- Light factory oil
- Nylon bottom and PC top
Sold in packs of 10.
Spring Info & Factory Lubing
Spring: High preload, 65g bottom out
Factory Lubing: Very light coat of a thinner lube
205g0 or 3204. These linears benefit from a nice thick lube. Give the whole stem a nice light coat, and give the bottom housing sliders a medium coating. I also recommend a spring swap and oiling, but the stock springs are quite pleasant if you're looking to keep things closer to stock.
Some people like thick films on these, some don't bother - your call!
