Epic Gear Orange

Epic Gear Orange switches are similar to Gateron Browns, but abysmal mold quality hurts their performance. A dip in force before the tactile bump, which was evident in multiple test runs, indicates friction (likely from a mold imperfection). It also has a late activation point, particularly when compared with Cherry MX Browns. That lateness will require floating typists, who may have trained on other switch types, to rethink their style.

LED lenses are present on Epic Gear Orange switches. The lenses are useful for keycaps with small inscriptions, as they focus LED lights well, but fail to improve wider legends. The lenses actually make edge dimness on wider legends worse.
