The Gateron Ink switches feature a transparent smokey housing. This switch is made out of a new type of plastic. The spring inside is coated black to match the switch housing. This switch is very smooth and has little spring crunch.
The v2's now have an upgraded housing that helps make the contact leaves more secure. Contact leaves are still able to be pressed out with your thumb, but do not fall out while turning the switches upside down in our testing.
