Depends on several reviews
i remember back when the lubix elite was going in the $100s and it still sold :P
maybe cameron's doing a similar thing here?
I will try to summarize this one last time in this post to hopefully clear this up, I will start off by addressing the price of this cube. I originally posted this cube for such a high retail because yes, it does take me quite some time to fully produce one of these items but also because it was intended for those people who genuinely wanted this item (there were few who did purchase it for it's original price but were refunded the additional cost once the drop occurred). This cube wasn't necessarily designed to be something that you would see even 2/10 people using at a competition because I did not intend it to become "mass-produced" rather a specialty cube that was requested by some cubers who I have met. I know that there are ways in which I can cut down time and therefore the price of this cube but I was currently working with what I had at the time, assembled ZhanChi's. I actually am not looking to cut costs per say because I would not be able to keep up with orders for this cube assuming it was popular once the price was more around the $20 mark. This cube is 90% going to be a limited time product that will only be sold throughout the summer while I do not have school. I am not blaming my time constraints on chores or personal things but I am saying that they do have a substantial part in my life such as running SpeedCubeShop does. I am once again sorry that I seem to have offended so many of you with this cube but don't worry, it will be off the market in due time and then you won't have to worry about the price of it. Thanks to those who have placed your orders, I am currently preparing your cubes for shipment and hope that you enjoy them.
So how many ways is there to lube a simple 3x3 cube? Can't be that many. Seems everyone nowadays has their own "special technique".
lol people complaining about a product they haven't even bought, criticizing that it's nothing special, then demanding that Cameron share that not so special secret with the world. Surely your lives, or lack thereof, will continue regardless of the price of Cameron's cube.
The mistake might've been putting it on the website which led people to believe that it would be sold to a lot of people instead of a select few.
If you know Cameron you know he's not trying to pull one over on anyone. Do you know how many times he donates prizes to competitions he goes to? How much cheaper his cubes are generally than other shops? He's doing a favor for the Community by providing a (SoCal) local cube shop for newbies and experts alike. Of course he makes some profit off it but that doesn't mean that's the only reason he's in it. He's not some big corporation with tons of people working for him, just him and his family, in their spare time. If he has a special technique that he doesn't wanna reveal for free then that's on him, but it doesn't make him necessarily selfish or greedy. I know some cubers who don't believe in sharing every single technique they have, but that doesn't make them selfish. Sure a lot of cubers in the community feel compelled to share information that could help the community but it doesn't make you an ass if you don't share an idea. Cameron's way of giving back to the Community is his shop and that's good enough for me.
Charging $35/$60 for a 3x3 is not "giving back to the community". It's called a scam.
Nobody's accusing him of being dishonest. Just maybe overvaluing his time and/or skill.
