    I got a knack for Limited Editions, so I got the pink and green GTS 2 M, then I saw a purple one in the back of the boxes, but I can't seem to find anything about them, just a random youtube video with an unboxing, does anyone know if it was ever available?

    I'm a collector and I'm looking for an OP Dayan Zhanchi 3x3.
    The problem is I don't know how to tell the difference between a regular plastic, and the rare OP.
    Is it like the 2x2s where the screws are black? Is there another way to tell, maybe on the original box that it came in?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, the main way to tell the difference in Dayan OP and NP is the color of the core. The OP 3x3's have a tan core verses the NP which are not tan (I cannot remember the NP core color off the top of my head, but if I remember correctly it is not tan) The 2x2 like you said have the black screw, which is the main difference, and I believe they have the tan core as well. Once I have the chance to look at my OP 2x2 core I will confirm the color, (that is unless someone else tells you before I do).

    either tighten it or get a new 2x2
     
  7. I think it's the 42mm Zhanchi torpedo, but the cubicle doesn't sell them anymore.

    I use japanese color scheme and would love to change the tiles around but they look pretty glued in there.

    4x2 N35 for the valk, and yes, as long as the cube doesn't have a logo on it, stickerless(?) is allowed.

    Hi everybody!

    I was just wondering. Do you guys think I should get the MoYu aosu M, or the non-magnetic QiYi Wuque? Money is not a problem, but I would prefer the best quality-price one. Also I love magnetic cubes, but I just wanted to know if the Wuque was better.
    I average 1:40-1:50, but with a good cube I would probably drop 5-7 seconds. (I know I should start learning Yau, but I don't like my current cube) Right now I use the QiYi Qiyuan, and I hate it. I don't know if I got a bad one, or is just bad. It also has a pop issue, and the stickers are about to fall off.

    Thanks!

    PS: Don't mind me on grammatical errors or bad english:D

    If
    you want a magnetic version, aosu GTS m would be better, because wuque doesn't have magnetic.
    Aosu GTS m has pretty good magnets, and is cheaper than most magnetic wuques out there, which are all premium and quite expensive IMO

    Hi,
    Once time in the past, I took my skewb and regulate balls in it.
    My regulation was so bad and until this moment I dont touch this work.
    Can I get help from us, how I can regulate my skewb in the best way?
    Thank you for your respond,
    Miki
     
  17. I don't understand what you mean, what do you mean by "regulate"?
