Cherry MX equivalent to Romer G?

I don't have experience with Cherry MX. But people say they feel like browns with a higher actuation point.

 

For me they just feel like easier-to-actuate rubber domes.

I was able to try the G910 today and got a feel for the keys. I'm just wondering - what is the closest Cherry MX equivalent to those keys?

Eh, it would say like a MX brown with the actuation force of a MX Red, there really isn't any strait comparison.

I had the G910 for quite sometime and I've been using Cherry MX switches for many years before and since.  I agree with some of the other posters, there really isn't a comparison between the two switches.  The Romer-G switches definitely have a bump whereas Cherry MX has more of a click.  I also agree with some of the other posters that browns is about the closest comparison you're going to get.
