I got the exact same keyboard around 2 weeks ago now and my speed, stamina, and accuracy have all vastly improved since the switch.
And yeah, this keyboard does have models with blues/browns in them.

Red switches took me around 3 months to get used to it from using laptop. Just stick to whatever you prefer or have and you'll get better from time to time.

I recently got a K70 (like 1-2 weeks ago) and I've seen a LOT of improvement over my "old" Blue switch keyboard.

Singletapping is much easier (stamina-wise) and streams are more fluid for me (I've reached to the point I could do one Image Material stream with only a 100 at the end).

Just play blacks like a real man.

Wanna switch keyboards? I'll gladly let you play like a man and take the wuss approach.

blacks are so light, can't imagine how light reds are :c

I find red switches to be the best, and im not a fan of blues at all., when I had blues it felt like I was pressing nothing.

i didnt like the feel of blues and browns. reds are probably the best switches ive ever touched.

Thats exactly how I feel as well; people just don't give reds enough time and dismiss them as being bad because the switch is so *light* compared to other conventional switches.

I play with blacks and I really rely on the feedback of hitting the keys down now, I probably couldn't switch D:

I'm feeling the struggle right now. I switched from Blue to Red and my accuracy is suffering. I'm playing better overall but I'm pressing way too early. :cry:

You just have to get used to it, they are pretty light.

I am fine.

Wouldn't the most optimal switch, outside of psychological preference, be the one with the shortest key travel distance and the lowest activation resistance? Some might favor a stiffer activation force, but if you were a robot, I would think whatever switches with those criteria would be the best.

PS Cherry isn't the only freakin switch manufacturer

Not exactly. Theoretically higher resistance is better if the player is perfect (can exert unlimited force with no problems). Players aren't perfect which is why we have the red/black debate.

lower resistance = higher force required during finger extension
shorter travel distance = lesser range of extension required

shorter travel distance could also make it easier to consistently estimate when the key activates (accuracy)
