KT F&F gets a lot of hate but I actually really like them. These are linear. They're super lightweight unlike most other switches of the time and this board itself has a "vintage vintage" version of F&F switches which I've never seen before where it uses the same sliders as KT's magnetic reed switches, which I think helps the feel a lot.
