    Valk 3 Corner disassembly

    Great, thanks. For people's reference, I would recommend sticking something in one of the holes in the end of the piece, to lever it out so you can pop the end out and take the pieces apart.

    Valk 3 Corner disassembly

    Hey everyone, 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...

    Best cheap 3x3 to give away?

    I'd definitely go with the MF3S. I just bought my sister the MF3S and MF2S for christmas, they're excellent for beginners.

    TangLong Suddenly Slow

    Hey everyone, 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...

    [Review] YJ Guansu

    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...

    [Review] Moyu Tanglong

    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.

    One-Answer 4x4 Question Thread

    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...? Thanks!

    [email protected] - CrowdCPU Fewest Moves

    Hey Everyone, 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...

    [Help Thread] Is my cube / puzzle a dud?

    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...

    [Help Thread] Is my cube / puzzle a dud?

    Moyu HuaChuang is poppy and slow Hey Everyone, 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...
