    Always On Reserve for GamerFinger Products

    GamerFinger products will remain on reserve until further notice. What does that mean?

    • You can reserve any GamerFinger product, including caps, switches and optical PCB.
    • If we have your order contents in stock, we will ship it immediately.
    • If we are waiting for a GamerFinger restock shipment, we will ship your order as soon as it arrives.
    • You can cancel your reserve at any time.

    Why are we doing this?

    • GamerFinger is a popular item that - as of this writing - is very hard to find. Most customers know of focusattack.com as a US reseller for this product.
    • At the moment, restocks of GamerFinger products is difficult to assess, due to inconsistency in shipping times by the company. Some can take just a week to ship, others can take many weeks even if the product is in stock at their warehouse. While we can usually accomodate other vendors, the inconsistency makes GamerFinger unique as a supplier.
    • We will continue to work with GamerFinger to improve their turnaround time for restock shipments. We are working to purchase enough additional stock to meet the high demand, and work around the inconsistencies.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service team by email or click the Help or "?" icon to display a search box and form.


    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™
    Speed Silver
    Cherry MX™ Silver "linear feel" is an input speed evolution from the red MX. Both silent and linear, the travel distance to actuation is greatly reduced from 2mm to 1.2mm with total travel of just 3.4mm. There is no audible click feedback.

    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 cherrymx.de.

    1. Mx Silver is top tier

      These Cherry Mx Silver switches are top notch. With the actuation point being lower then the Cherry reds they feel very responsive once I make my inputs.

      I strictly only use hitbox and I have found that with the gamerfinger buttons I can pound on these very hard and not make any noise has the switches are silent and very quick to respond after a press.

      I'm extremely happy with this product and highly recommend it.

    2. Best switches on the market

      Won't settle for anything less in my pushbuttons. Thanks FA! on Jun 13th 2019

    3. Brilliant if you need sensitive buttons

      When I used to order Gamerfinger HBFS buttons from their official website, this Cherry Silver microswitch was the keyboard-mechanical-switch it usually came with. It's wonderful for me because I can't stand having to press harder on a button to get an input to come out. Here I can press my buttons as fast as I want, because I don't need resistance to improve my feel. After trying some other switches, I could only go back to this one due to it's speed and comfort. It is still less pressure sensitive somewhat than Hayabusa buttons, but Hayabusa buttons' sensitivity is where I draw the line, so this is perfect for me. Plus it's durable! on Dec 6th 2018
