I've been looking into modding my own Valk M, but I realized I actually don't know how to disassemble the corners in the Valk. The edges are fine, they just slide apart, but the corners are weird - Do you have to pull the base of the piece from the cap, then the three pieces can...
I'm a sub-30 solver with my main being a TangLong, and it has suddenly gone absolutely awful. I picked it up the other day, after solving with it a few hours earlier with no problems, and it was really slow. Like, I'm talking about getting on Rubik's brand slow. Yep. Slow. I took...
Where the puzzle was purchased: Ebay.co.uk
When the puzzle was purchased: Few weeks ago
Thoughts on the puzzle:
Great out of the box though not much improvement from when I first got it.
Tensions didn't need changing, came pre-lubed (A bit)
Outer layers are amazing, inner layers are slow, but...
Here is my text review of the Tanglong: http://thegeekcircle.blogspot.com.es/2016/02/mooyu-tanglong-review.html
In short, It is an excellent cube, with slower turning than the AoLong, but the cube is on the whole a lot more controllable.

I've just been trying to learn Yau via JKC's tutorial (can be found here), and in the scramble she provides, there are some weird 2Rw and 2Rw2 moves...
Pretty sure that isn't proper notation...
What are these?
Are they equivalent to a certain move, or are they something else...?
I am an intermediate programmer, and had the idea of making a fewest moves calculator, where you give it the type of cube and a scramble and it calculates the fewest moves. This led me on to have the though of a [email protected] or BOINC - style program, where you connect to the...
Thanks a bunch for your reply. It's helped out a lot, and I will try tensioning and lubing my HuaChuang now. I'll also get into to doing some solves! If it doesn't get any better, I will probably end up buying a new 5x5. It would be a shame, as the HuaChuang is really expensive, so it would be a...
Moyu HuaChuang is poppy and slow
I got my first 5x5, the HuaChuang, about 5 months ago, and I was disappointed, as it was not what I was told it was in reviews.
My HuaChuang is very slow and locky, and when I loosen it to a speed that is bearable, it is unstable and pops a...
