this is a very light switch that can mess up your typing every once in a while. Gaming wise, the lightness does help quick response time when moving or whatever. (Smoother cherry mx red, even in stock form)

honestly its a really good switch, but one down side is that the red switches are really loud. but they are super responsive and great for gaming :)

Gateron Reds are exactly what they are perceived to be: smooth. Best feeling switch out of the box. However, the 'wobble' associated with Gaterons is also real. The stem is a bit looser which results in a smoother actuation . But that's the trade off. Smoothness at the expense of stable keys.
