Gazzew Boba U4T Tactile Switches
Gazzew U4T are super thocky switches with the sweetest bump around. I like to think of them as a Holy Panda's more sane cousin with a nicely rounded but slightly less extreme bump, better QC, and minimal/sensible factory lube. They feature a longer stem post for an earlier bottom out and that signature thock we all know and love. They are made from a secret blend of 'boba plastic' that gives a deeper sound profile compared to other switch housings.
The black version features a black housing (Gazzew's boba plastic blend) with a Gold stem. This variant retains the same Boba plastic, but is not subject to yellowing when exposed to some foams like the legacy pearl boba plastic. The white version is made from Gazzew's New proprietary plastic blend, which is not subject to yellowing when exposed to some foams like the legacy pearl boba plastic.
The Pearl variants are an End of Life (EOL) product. Once stock of these switches has been exhausted, they will be retired. The Black Housing version will be continuously restocked!
Sold in packs of 10.
These housings are Gazzew's New proprietary plastic blend that is softer and smoother than nylon, resulting in an excellent thocky sound profile. It also fixes the yellowing issue when exposed to certain foams.
Spring Info & Factory Lubing
The stock springs are a mid weight 65g Korean spring, so there is no need to swap for quality/tolerance reasons.
Boba tactiles also feature a redesigned leaf made specifically for tactiles - allowing for that sweet sweet bump and virtually no leaf ping. The springs are donut-dipped in lube to prevent ping, and the leaves are lightly lubed - the sliders are completely dry.
For brush lubing, I suggest a light lubricant like TriboSys 3203. Coat the stem (but not the tactile legs or silencing pad) with a light coat.
For those interested in trying the Gazzew Method, pick up some Loob-3G in a dropper bottle.
