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

    I bought a F-II when I first started cubing a year ago, but bought a Zhanchi not so long after because I didn't like the fact that it kept popping so much. Now that I have a gentler touch, I realize I really miss the bubbly/round feeling of the F-II. I find the Zhanchi too "square". Is there any...

    That's also what I thought... But nail polish remover works so much better. I can rub off the glue only with a cloth that has a little remover on it, while with rubbing alcool, I have to scrape the glue off with the blade after I rubbed it with the cloth.

    I'm currently restickering my old F-II, and the glue from the original stickers takes forever to get rid of. I was thinking of using nail polish remover to soften the glue. If I clean my cube carefully after, do you think it could melt the plastic or something? It's not as if I was restickering...

    5BLD's And PandaCuber's Roux Tutorial

    Yeah, that's what I figured out after I posted this. I had to do them twice. So yes, everything makes sense. Any good guides about parity you would recommend? Great, thanks!

    5BLD's And PandaCuber's Roux Tutorial

    Calling all Rouxers! I recently started solving a 4x4 with the reduction method, and since I use Roux for my 3x3, I figured I'd use the same for the 4x4. I have a little problem with oll parity. When I get to the point where I have to solve the bad edges, I sometimes find myself with too many...

    New Cuber

    Ah ah, that feeling you get the first time to put your cube back to it's initial solved state! You'll learn the algs, it seems like a big mountain at first, but once you understand the mechanics of the cube, it'll be a lot easier. Just play with it and practice... And have fun! That'd be a...

    Which Cubesmith sticker set is closer to the DaYan stickers that come with the cubes? Standard or studio? Thanks, just checked it and it isn't worth it for me to pay 0,60$ for stickers and 2,70$ for the shipping, so I'll probably get regular ones from Cubesmith.

    Which Cubesmith sticker set is closer to the DaYan stickers that come with the cubes? Standard or studio? Also, any idea where I could buy DaYan logos? Even if I can identify my cubes by using them, I still like to see the proper logos on them. Thanks!

    The New Girl

    Welcome :) Being a girl, I also noticed there weren't many of us around here. Maybe because cubing is considered geek? I guess guys don't really mind being identified as geeks, but girls do. But like MovingOnUp said, fast girls get known pretty quickly. I'm not one of them, but maybe someday...

    Which timer do you use for your iPhone?

    iiTimer Still using the Lite version since I pretty much only time myself with my 3x3x3, but I'll probably end up buying it. Love this app!

    How often do people usually need to tighten their cubes? I have a ZhanChi, and I feel like I constantly need to tighten it... Like every week, and I don't use it that much. edit: It's really hard to control. I know I haven't been cubing for that long, but if find it easier to control right...

    Figured out on my own how to solve the Megaminx :) So far, I can solve the 3x3, the 4x4 and now the megaminx.

    Where do you store your puzzles and puzzle maintenance stuff?

    They're all on my headboard, which is like a shelf. But I keep my screwdriver, stickers and lube in a box in a closet.
