JWICK Ice Jade is a good candidate if you're looking for a light tactile with a strong bump

The switches are a nice teal color with a teal stem. They are called a 'pre advanced tactile'. No idea what this means but it from what I can tell, it's just a very strong tactile switch.

According to their spec sheet, the upper housing is PC, bottom is nylon with a POM stem and a 62g spring. It has 2mm pretravel and 3.8mm total travel. From my own measurements, this is correct. It has a total height of 17.8mm and is 14mm fully depressed.

They call the spring a long spring, it is quite long. I measured it to be 19mm in length.

The way the switch feels it force wise it reminds me of a light tactile such as cherry mx brown and kinetic labs penguin but with a stronger bump. The bump feels like a D bump with the pretravel and is stronger than a cherry mx ergo clear and close to a U4T. It somewhat reminds me of a Drop Holy Panda X but the spring is much lighter.

The stem is slightly oiled and mostly dry. There is quite a bit of noise and it would definitely benefit from some lube. The housing is quite tight and doesn't need to be filmed even after opening the switch.

The ice jade feels like a strong tactile with a light spring. I'm personally more of a U4T and Holy Panda enjoyer and this switch isn't really for me. This could be a good switch to be used for an office build since it isn't long pole and has a light spring which could help with fatigue.

If you're looking for a light tactile with a strong bump then this is a good candidate.
