Is it worth it to have multiple mechanical keyboards with different switches?

I just ordered a Ducky Shine 3 (White light, brown switch) and am thinking about ALSO getting one with red switches purely for gaming, for those of you with multiple keyboards with different switches, is it worth it?

If so, what's a cheap, but still good quality, red switch keyboard?

I wouldn't waste the cash, but that's your decision. Find a switch you enjoy and just stay with it IMO.

I have this keyboard:

and it's ****ing amazing

if you want a full numpad, there's this version:

but I don't think it's really worth it to buy two mechanical keyboards, plus it's inconvenient to swap them every time you want to game

Its best to stick with one type of switch so you have muscle memory on how much you have to press down on a key. Unless you have a lot of money you plan on spending with then go ahead.
