My first mechanical was a Choc Mini with Browns. I love it. I typed on a leo with blues for about 2 weeks before getting it, and it is a more solid feeling board overall....but the typing experience on mine is fantastic. It is not extremely soft, and does have a noticeable feedback. The clears would probably feel good during gaming. You have to realize that almost any mechanical board, even MX blacks and clears, are going to require less force than most are used to. It will be a little weird and take some focus to even feel the MX Blues feedback at first. Even a board with reds or browns makes a good deal more noise than rubber domes to a new user that bottoms out most keys.
The main reason to go with a Choc vs a filco or leo is the layout. If you like it like I do, get it. If not and budget is no problem get a filco. Leo's look better btw. try geekhack classifieds
