    [Member Intro] Hi guys!

    I am picking up cubing again after a 7 year hiatus. Before I stopped, I have learned all OLLs and PLLs and my average was about 18 I think. Currently, my average is around 21 and am slowly getting back my old average. Here in the Philippines, cubing stuff are hard to come by. Though, online...

    DIY GuHong Setup Help

    Hi all! Awhile back I ordered a GuHong cube because after looking at its construction, it seemed like it wouldn't lock up as much as my Cube4U cube because of all the rounded "seams" where each cubie contacts the others. However, after a bit of tinkering, it has sat in a drawer for nearly...

    What was your first speedcube?

    What was your first speedcube? It has to be a speedcube that is a 3x3 and is not a Rubik's brand. I say this because a Rubik's brand is not really considered a speedcube by most cubers, and it should be a DIY (such as A-V, F-II, Dayan Guhong, etc.). My first speedcube (or atleast DIY) was this...
