They were actually stiffer than I imagined. Still, the red switches are noticably lighter than Blues. I desoldered the Blue switches for z and x (osu! player) on my keyboard and replaced them with these.
I prefer them over blues when it comes to repeated presses but they don't feel as nice as blue switches for normal typing. That's just my opinion.
Adequate packaging to prevent bent/broken pins. (Posted on 12/23/15)
