    It's still going to be useless unless you do heavy sanding mods and use it for feet.

    No disrespect but the vid would be far better if you'd spent the time and broken it in better like so it was like your original sub-30 cube. Plus there is a massive difference in the style of the two solves alone: it's not really a fair test.

    For now I'll be sticking with my Zhanchi and keeping the Rubik's as a plaything or for multiple solves.
  4. how?

    It's not fair because it's two different scrambles for starters: different starting conditions etc. One solve could be easier than the other. The only way to iron that out is an Ao5 or Ao12 for each of the solves: that would average out any inconsistencies and give a better idea as to how the cube performed in both cases.

    Also the solves were CN, but I feel that the white on bottom solve had more "flow" to it: there were less pauses and it seems far fewer moves to it. Possibly you are better at white on bottom than other CN solves? I don't know how good you are at CN, but once again an average would smooth out any inconsistencies.

    I really can't believe I'm deigning to give a response to such a worthless post, but here goes.

    1. We all know F2L.

    2. That video is of Yu goddamn Nakajima. He's 20% cooler than most people on this forum can ever hope to be. And it's the cuber, not the cube.

    actually it was a rubiks DIY. which is actually a decent speedcube.
    you're thinking its a storebought. but ultimately its the cuber and not the cube.
  9. how do you know?

    Yea he used a Rubik's DIY back in the day, that's what his video descriptions used to say. Also, this thread talks about the Rubik's DIY and everyone seems to talk about Yu in that thread, including Jason Baum.
  11. the video description says nothing about using a Rubiks diy

    Sure thing a Rubiks brand can be made really good if modded. Mine was not bad actually, but I switched it as soon as I hit the minute. Also I think when you start getting fast, it just isn't fun to use a Rubiks brand, too painful. But if your not as fast, and you don't want to buy a new cube, then this is a good tip. I don't agree with the price though. My GuHong was more expensive than my Rubiks brand. That might depend on country, but if the best cubes are way more expensive than the Rubiks wherever you live, I think a cheap Ghost Hand or something is a much better choice as a first speedcube. I costs almost nothing, and you don't have to mod it to make it way better than a Rubiks.
  15. But some people don't want to pay for the cube and shipping at the same time and they might want it right away

    First all, you said that your method can make a Rubik's brand that is unable to get a sub 1 minutes go to a cube that you can always get a sub-1 on it? This is where "it's the cuber, not the cube" comes into meaning. And about your "For people who can't afford a nice cube" argument, you can get an FII or an A-V for a few dollars cheaper than a Rubik's brand.
    But, I loved you solves, maybe brest can reconstruct them. (It helps convince someone if you actually show them the solves)
  18. if you get the f2 from amazon and the cube is $8 and shipping is $2 then it would be the same price as a rubiks brand

    And which cube is better? An FII or a Rubik's. Sure a Rubik's can be good (just ask 5BLD :p), but a FII is definitely better

    Don't Worry About It
    I sub 1 OH on my store bought. Rubiks can be good if you know how to make it good. ie break in, lube, good lookahead.
