Cherry MX Linear greys are a mid-heavy linear switch, that used to be commonly found in the spacebar of older boards, especially MX black boards. They're just a normal linear, and have been retooled since sometime in 2016. If you can find them at a decent price, I'd say they're worth. But, they will usually be more expensive than Cherry MX Blacks. For that reason, I'd recommend just getting some nice retooled Cherry MX Blacks.

A thin coat of Krytox GPL 205g0 on the stem will get you a nice, buttery feel.
