Produced by JWK Durock. These silent linears feature clear housings, top housing as PC, bottom housing as Nylon, stem as POM, and gold-plated springs. Anyone looking for any smooth, not mushy silent linears? Well, here it is, Dolphins and Daybreak from Durock.
"Anyone interested in frankensteins? I personally like replacing these stems with the Gateron silent yellow stems. In my experience, they're smoother, stock wise. Anyhow, I do recommend lubing these switches, films not needed."
Both switches come lightly pre-lubed, can lube over it.

Better than the silent exoctic switches
The Durock Silent Linear was a very pleasant surprise. I own a set of silent Alpacas and tried a lot of alternatives but this Durock won me over. Alpacas are too light and have an audible leaf noise. The Durock is more silent and has a nice weight to it comparable to Black Inks. I wouldn't say it's the best silent for the money, but the best silent overall.
Very smooth and quiet. Some mush
I still like the black crystal v2 silent reds the most (wish they had silent yellows), but these dolphins are oh so smooth. If they just made one with a near-flat 50-55g. Dolphins are the smoothest stock I've tried now (slightly mushy), bobagums are the quietest (but mushy and sticky), and black crystals are by far the loudest. Oh.. and zealpc switches are just overpriced IMO.
