    What is your favorite cube / puzzle?

    Oddly enough, even though the Fangshi and CX3 are still my favorites, I just broke all three records (Best/Ao5/Ao12) with my Weilong. Go figure.

    How to be sub 20

    I had the same problem. Improving my cross time (even though I only went from 5 to like 2-3 seconds, lowered my average from about 22 seconds to 20 or sometimes sub 20. The way I improved was literally just solved the cross over and over. I would solve it, scramble, and repeat 100+ times. I...

    [Help Thread] Lubrication Thread

    Glad to help. The Fangshi is now my main and I haven't lubed it in a while. The pieces truly don't need much.

    Trustworthy, yes. Fast? No. My last order from Lightake took 8 weeks. Will not order from them again haha. The extra 1-2 dollars from another store is worth the speed in my opinion.

    What is your favorite cube / puzzle?

    Oh, must have had them mixed up. I knew Mats had the single and Felix the average. So Felix used a Weilong for the average record and Mats a Zhanchi?

    Fake / Counterfeit DaYan Zhanchi from Amazon?

    Neither of those are Zhanchis. However, I have ordered from Amazon and had no problems before. Multiple times. You should probably check who is actually providing the cube. Amazon is the middleman.

    [Help Thread] Lubrication Thread

    I lubricated my Fangshi core using his method as well. I used Lubix lubricant, which I believe is slightly less thick than the weight 5 you currently have. This being said, I think wt 5 would be fine on the core...maybe if you used a slightly smaller amount than what he does. I would not...

    I thought single was on a Weilong and Average on a Zhanchi

    Is that even possible? I thought the pieces were made to work specifically with the GansIII's weird core.

    [Help Thread] "What cube should I get?" The Puzzle Choice Thread

    I would recommend above all else the Fangshi ShuangRen v2. It is my main and i've broken multiple records on it. It holds my current single record of 12.22 and my Ao12 of 18.xx. It is extremely fast when lubed and tensioned properly. Some people don't care for the feel of it (because the plastic...

    have you tried the super square one? For some reason I can't figure it out. Probably because there are no real tutorials on it, but I feel like it should be the same as my square 1...but it's not.

    What is your favorite cube / puzzle?

    I still find it amazing that everyone loves the Weilong. It's fantastic, just not as fantastic as everyone seems to think (imo of course). I've given mine probably 3 months and I still don't like it as much as my Fangshi or CX3. Crazy how much people's preferences differ.

    Beginner's Guide to Choosing a Speedsolving Method

    I'm only color neutral with 2 colors. You might want to start like that as it's fairly easy, and then try to expand to different colors as well. I'm still learning the method though.

    Cubesmith vs The Cubicle

    I don't want to make the claim that they're as large as the cubesmith tiles...but there are more options, and these stickers are probably so close in size to cubesmith's, you wouldn't notice.
