Best cube to move into speed cubing with?

Postby bhinnenkamp » Sat Jan 09, 2010 10:22 am

I am new to cubing, and have been solving a store bought 3x3x3 using lbl. I have gotten my time down to an average of around 1:20, with my fastest solve at 56 sec on a lucky solve. I have been focusing a lot on finger tricks and am wanting to take it to another level and break under 1 minute. My main questions are....which diy cube should I go with? I am tired of the stickers peeling easily on my current cubes. What is the best way to aproach the Freidrich method transitioning from lbl. are there certain algs that will be more helpful to focus on first? If so, where should I go to find them?

Also wondering how fast one can get at the lbl method I am using?

Best,
Brian

DIY cube type C. Perfect cube!~ There is also type A and F DIY cubes that are known to be... SUPER AWESOME. No need for you to focus on learning fridrich yet until you get an average of 30~55, but if you do want to learn, you should start learning F2L first.


(I started learning F2L at an average of 35.)

Dude, the DIY Cube Type C is most definitely NOT the best speed cube, especially you're expecting to go for max speed. If you wanna get a good cube, buy the Dayan Guhong or Lingyun cube. Best technologized cube that I have ever owned (the Lingyun), and I have gotten a best time of 20.58 sec. Never use the Rubik's logo cube; they suck. Never use the DIY's cause you don't know ur speed and tensions yet. That's all, but if you want more info, email me, please.

Best of luck.

Please learn F2L then the Fridrich Method. Finger tricks are best on Japanese and Chinese cubes. Fastest CUBES IN THE WORLD! :lol:

I don't think that the DaYan GuHong was available in January 2010 (when rubixcuber posted that). Maybe Type Cs were the best then.

Type Cs were GREAT corner cutters considering the time back then lol. They still weren't the best but a great first cube to start speedcubing with.
UPDATE. NOW GET A DAYAN GUHONG.

Zhanchi, Guhong's known for popping, Lingyun's known for popping even more, Lunhui's known for slightly locking up (I use it ;) ).
I would get a Zhanchi XD
