Let me state again:
Peel off laminate. Rub off color. Use Crayola Marker or Sharpie to replenish color. Put scotch tape/other clear tape over sticker. Use. Enjoy.
If the whole sticker is unusable, use white paper+marker, or colored paper. Cut it a little smaller than you think you'll need it to...
One word: Quality.
Mine had white stickers, but it's my main speedcube (textured tiles now) and I wouldn't trade it for anything else. It's just better quality. Turns really smoothly, never pops (maybe 5 times in the last 4 years)... what more could you ask for?
To answer the original question:
I like cubes that don't pop at all (I'm very rough with them) and don't lock up. I don't care for cutting corners very much at all; locking up is more a problem for me. I like the sides to turn quickly as well, but doesn't everyone?
I've got an 80's 3x3 and a 1982 4x4, and they're both amazing at speedsolving. The 3x3 was a real pain to do anything with, even with breaking in, but some silicone lube quickly made it one of my favorites.
The 4x4 studio cube I have is excellent. With Thrawst's 4x4 "Squircle" mod (you can find...
I've always just put scotch tape over the laminate that's peeling to hold it on better. You could also peel it off, color with magic marker, and put clear tape back over it. Did that with a blue sharpie on one of mine, and it looked fine.
But yeah, cubesmith tiles are the way to go if you've...
I did fused-cube solves for fun, and if you know all the right-handed algs that use F,R, and U only, you can mirror them with a U' , rotate the cube so that R becomes F, and mirror it with your new F U and L. Worst comes to worst, do a 4L-LL, but it's not usually necessary. It can be done very...
How long are you there? There are a lot of students starting classes in the area (several universities), like myself, around the 20th. I'm moving up there around that time for school and would love to attend.
I don't know if any of you guys are familiar with yoyo's, bu a transaxle is an axle that goes between the yoyo string and the axle...
I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but after solving the Rubik's Magic so many times, the pieces don't line up perfectly anymore. The piece (in the default rectangular position) that is on the bottom, second from the right, is shifted down about an eighth of an inch, and a few other...
Anyone out there in the Houston Area? At all? We need competitions of some sort. If they exist, then please invite me.
And if I made the mistake of putting this in the wrong place again, please just bump it. It's sort of annoying to see more than 3 replies about it.
I think you're right. You get all the ones possible with one rotation, then simply rotate the cube c-cw or cw, either works, and get the others... unless you accidentally mess up some of the first ones, then you gotta move it back.
