Banana split/Macho switches Review

I like using linear switches for gaming. Here, I would be reviewing linear switches known as the banana split switch, also known as a macho switch.

Banana Split switches are the switches of choice for gaming. It’s a switch I have grown to enjoy over the past month I have had it on my board.

The actuation point is 62g, meaning that the spring requires 62 grams of force to actuate the switch. The housing is a spring, nylon, and polycarbonate-blend housing. 

The stem is made out of POM. This switch is sold in packs of 25. Also, this switch is very smooth to type.

This is a great switch for folks who want a slimmer profile and smoother travel than Cherry MX Blues. Perfect for typing and gaming. I really like the smoothness it provides.
