Postby Erno Rubik » Sat Aug 30, 2008 9:33 am

I need a new cube. Here's what I'm thinking of getting:
Type D DIY
Type A Core
PVC Stickers

Tell me what you think.
Thanks.

That would be a good cube but you should get some puzzleproz screws,washers and springs 4 it and some puzzleproz lube.

I've assembled a cube in that configuration:
- Turned really smoothly
- Never popped
- Jammed during finger tricks
- Felt light, hollow, and bulky

I didn't particularly like it.

I'd strongly recommend a store-bought Rubik's Cube manufactured in China around 2005-2006.

Store-bought feel a lot sturdier, never pop, turn smoothly, and don't jam. You've to sand it, lube it, and take care of it first though! The only downside, is that if you abuse the cube then you wont be able to fix the tension. Rubik's DIY Cubes are better suited for this, but I found them to be a lot more difficult to assemble properly. I could never get the tension right.

Search some websites for some top speedcubers and see what they're using. Don't buy every new no-name-brand DIY that hits the market because a bunch of cubers proclaim it the best! You'll end up wasting thousands of dollars that way. It might not seem expensive, $8-15 here and there but it adds up!

Tim.

Why is that?
Weird.

Here's a few questions:
1. Why?
2. Who are you?
3. WTH do you mean?

Please actually answer these questions this time.
Thanks.
