  • Product Description

    The GamerFinger HBFS pushbutton offers incredible durability, responsiveness, and a unique feedback system thanks to its use of mechanical key switches.   

    Operating Force, Feel, and Different Key Switches Explained

    The immediate benefit of incorporating the HBFS pushbutton into your gameplay is the ability to choose your preferred level of operating force, simply by switching out the mechanical key switches.

    What does linear feel or tactile feel mean? Linear feel means that the feel is consistent from the moment you press down on the button. Tactile feel provides a bit of feedback upon actuation. Operating Force means how hard you have to push the button and how hard it will push back when depressed.The g45g, for example, represents a metric unit of force.

    Swapping Key Switches to Adjust Operating Force and Feedback

    Because the HBFS uses mechanical key switches, you can purchase other switches that offer a higher operating force, or a different feel.  Each are color-coded based on their characteristics:

    • Red: 45g operating force, linear feel
    • Silver: 45g operating force, linear feel, operative travel 1.2mm versus 2mm of Red MX
    • Black: 60g operating force, linear feel
    • Brown: 55g operating force, soft tactile feel
    • Blue: 60g operating force, click tactile feel
    • Razer MX Orange: 45g operating force, soft tactile feel, silent operation, operative travel 1.9mm versus 2mm of Red MX
    • Razer MX Green: 50g operating force, click tactile feel, operative travel 1.9mm versus 2mm of Red MX

    Cherry MX Blue
    Cherry MX™ Blue
    Cherry MX™ Blue "click tactile feel" sends a little bump to your fingers, and has an audible click the moment the button command is sent to the console or PC.  The feedback can speed up your execution because you do not have to press the button all the way down to activate the button command.  The diagram at right shows how the blue MX switch works. You can see that the switch activates at the halfway point -- the moment the white piece snaps down. 60g means that a bit more force is needed to push down.

    10x more durable than Sanwa RG

    Sanwa's RG microswitches are known to last longer than the standard SW-68 switches.  Thanks to the mechanical key switch, HBFS possesses a much longer lifespan through use of mechanical switches - 50 million operations versus 500,000 - for about the same price as as the RG.

    Change your Gameplay, or Repair/Replace

    These key switches offer their own unique feedback and press capabilities, potentially improving your approach your fighting game execution.  Should you need to replace few damaged switches in a mechanical keyboard (purchases limited to 12pcs), these should do the trick.  Make sure to check the type of switch that your keyboard uses before purchasing.

    Thanks to The Keyboard Company and PC World for helpful descriptions on key switch characteristics.  Animated illustrations by

    1. Nice switch with loud click

      I bought this cherry blue, a razer green, a gateron blue and a gateron green, for my gamerfinger set, I tested for a week or so going between them and with 2 gamerfinger button cases, before I committed to an entire set of gamerfinger buttons for my current stick, (which has 11 active buttons and 2 side buttons, custom stick with i-pac pcb) and this switch is what I chose. It was close between it and the gateron blue, but this won out, cause it makes a much nicer sounding click. This and the gaterons feel wonderful to push with a nice satisfying feel, along with a loud click, but the cherry's was louder and I like that. Highly recommend this for your gamerfinger button cases. on Oct 14th 2018
