So I actually tried the SS 6x6 springs in the normal sized 7x7, and it is pretty impressive, I still need to work on the tensions though and maybe put a thicker lube in it to make it less "slidey" That is just personal preference though.

The f4 feels like total dog **** when you first get it, but if you use dayan hardware/core and take out those torpedos it feels awesome.
I know this was about springs only but i think im the only person who likes the f4

fangshi with dayan FTW. does anyone know what to put in a lunhui? stock works well but still...
Lunhui is slow and has good corner cutting, my soft maru cx3 springs make my cubes (too) fast, but it probably will be fine for the lunhui. The corner cutting gets a little worse, but lunhui can deal with that.

I put the extra (silver, soft) CX-3 springs into my wittwo v1. It's slightly faster, but less stable. It kept all its corner cutting from before. I think I like it better.
Note that my wittwo was pretty sucky prior to this, and it could just be that I cleaned and relubed the cube...

Why don't you try it out? See how it works. :)
Haha I will, just waiting for the weilong and the dayan hardware to come in the mail. Just wondering if anyone has tried it though. I've heard of the weilong being uncontrollable and having a flimsy outer layer but perhaps the dayan springs could possibly make it stiff.

I put those springs in my Dayan 2x2 and it's amazing.

Oh CBC? That's just him as far as I can tell. The Weilong is fine. It can be a bit uncontrollable but just dump copious amount of lube in. Well not really copious. Just overlube it a bit.

Thank you Michael. I don't have a whitwo but I cut down my soft Vcube4 springs and tried this. I wound up with a fast Fangshi that has just a little less friction. Had to tension it a little tighter so I lost some corner cutting. Overall it's very nice.

Took the unmodified Fangshi springs and put them in a 55mm Zhanchi like Lchu613 did. Fangshi springs in a Zhanchi might be three steps too far or the best swap ever. I'll update the first post when I have tried these longer.

Oh cool I'm glad you like it.

Kinda wish I had a Wittwo just to try this

SenileGenXer, I currently have the Zhanchi back with its normal springs, and I have to say it was definitely more flexible with the Fangshi springs but it's much more stable this way. I think with a 55mm Zhanchi though it might work better , but I'm not sure. Maybe.
