Have you tried a Blackwidow? Because it has a complete different feel to it. Granted they use different switches (6GV2 uses Cherry Black, Blackwidow uses Cherry Blue), it doesn't have the best tactile response. There's no "feel" that you've pressed the button, regardless of how much you've pushed the key in.

That's the point of the mechanical keyboard: the tactile feel and response. The only time you'll know you've pressed the key and it registers is when the key bottoms out.
