    It's what I was thinking. I saw on a YouTube video that the TangPo was the same as the LingPo so yeah, might get LingPo simply because it's a bit cheaper. But I'll not get them now I think so yeah

    Anyone know where I can get a MF3RS2 from in the U.K., ideally stickerless.

    Also, is there much difference between the MF3RS2 and the MF3RS, because all I can find on eBay is the MF3RS??

    You might want to check out this unboxing or this (p)review.

    Also you might want to consider to open a paypal account and order the cubes directly from china. The MF3RS2 is $5.55, shipping included and MF3RS is only $3.65 on cubezz.

    What is the perfect cube to get with my turning style?

    1. Smooth cubes are my specialty.
    2. I don't like fast, uncontrollable cubes.
    3. I like at least 30 degree corner cutting.
    4. Very locky cubes are not my favorites.
    5. Magnets can be a choice, but not necessary.

    Thanks ahead of time! (i can't do much, but I'll like your post?)

    Oh no sorry, I made a mistake. I meant MF3RS2 VS MF3RS. that’s what I can’t find the difference for. Apologies. I will change the title.

    Anyway, do you know the difference?

    Thanks for the video.

    Anyone here actually have or used the two cubes, because there is only so much you can trust videos as they may be sponsored. The Mf3rs2 seems to be exactly the same as the yulong to me at the moment, so im not sure if its worth upgrading.

    Whether it is fast or smooth, i'd say it depends on what lube you use.

    I've been recommended the MF3RS2, so i guess i recommend getting that. (I haven't got it myself, so cant really say much).

    As for speed and smoothness, the higher weight lube you use, the smoother, but slower it is. I use weight 5 for the core and 3 for the pieces (with a bit of maru once or twice a week). You could use weight 4 for the pieces, or even weight 5. For more help on lube, go to the lube thread: https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/threads/lubrication-thread.21212/page-150

    Really? Do you even bother to read the replies directed at you? I posted 2 links for you and you still insist you can't find anything about these cubes.

    Oh sorry, i didnt even read your comments.
    Its really hard navigating this on my phone, (ios 11 is quite buggy) so only read the comments that are quoting me. Apologies. I have read your comments now, thanks for your help.

    When i post comments, i don't refresh my page when i next check for replies. Sometimes i don't see my own comment there so i just type a new comment as i think it hasn't come up, accidental missing the ones that would have came if i refreshed. Apologies.

    Also, that message was moved here from a different thread, started before you answered, so that's another reason.

    Hey guys, I'm currently searching for a 3x3 speedcube that's great without any lube at all. Do you guys know any kind of 3x3 speedcubes (modern) that are great without lube?
     
  18. Most of them are reasonably good without lube. The lube just makes them feel even nicer.
