    Megaminx. If you are not speedsolving that it's a great time killer :)
     
  3. Go with SS or Dayan

    If you are not speedsolving you can simply also get an mf8 or even a QJ :)
     
  5. QJ locks up alot but there also Meffers

    mefferts is mf8, if I am not mistaken, or are those two different?
     
  7. Different Mefferts came first then Mf8 saw the Mefferts one and started makeing there own.

    Pyraminx is very simple, it can be solved pretty easily with no algs, and even the fast speedsolving methods are mostly intuitive :) If you get one, go with a Shenshou.

    iCubemart does have fast shipping from my experience, but i believe they are in California so any cubes you bought would have to go across the entire country to get to you.

    I ordered from across the sea, and it only took 7 days.
     
  13. Is there a place where I can get the SS 6x6 for about $20?

    Awesome square-1. Mechanism similar to mf8 v1 but better plastic. Could probably use some lube but I don't believe in lubing cubes. Really smooth. Rarely pops. Only when you do stupid things.

    The amount of work depends on the way you do it. I only drop a couple drops of maru lube into the cube without taking it apart. But everybody does it a different way. Some people like lubed cubes, some people don't :)
