What's the best speedcube out of these two?

Postby halehaler » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:28 am

I'm looking to buy a speedcube and so far I've found these two:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/World-Record-Speed-Velvet-Presentation/dp/B004EBKNU8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=toys&qid=1294568508&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rubik-Studio-HC-Rubiks-Cube/dp/B0027O5RDM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1294568808&sr=1-2-spell

I wonder which one turns the smoothest and quickest, I am also prepared to lubricate it with Silicone Spray if need be, but ideally it's good out of the box.

Also if you have any other suggestions please make sure they're buyable in the UK; not just USA.

Thanks.

Shouldn't really say this being on the rubiks.com staff, but the first is better! :lol:

Cool, is it just generally smoother; also does it need lubricating?

Well the studio cubes come from an era where rubiks cubes weren't the best out there. And the second one you list is pretty fast. They make them in 4 different sizes. I have 3 of them. They don't need lubing, but in most cases a little lube doesn't hurt. As long as you use silicone or a specific cube lube (rubik's, or lubix or maru etc.) and not WD40 or vaselline.
