i have the mf8 megaminx II (2) i'd never experienced it poped.. really... even you loose it so much.. it wont pop... (well i have pvc megaminx, mefferts, and the new mf8,, i choose mf8, the best)
the first mf8 suckz!! its like every turn it popz!!
i have type 2 mf8 megaminx (i have also mefferts and pvc mega)
when i received my mf8 some pieces were glued together, when i changed the tension and lubed, i think, i like it more than my mefferts because even how loose it is, it doesn't pop, it has only few lock ups, and when your get used...
