I've read on this forum of someone applying Lubix the every edge or corner, which is why I enquired.

May ask for a link?
I have no idea where it is, this was before I joined the forum, when I was just reading here.

That would likely be too much and actually slow the cube down.
Thanks, so I will just apply as instructed in the video.
Also, question, when it says to apply to the six point on the cube, should I pull the centre piece slightly so the Lubix can go on the screw?

Lubix Website said:
Pull the center cubie slightly away from the nylon core, and apply 1 dab (1/50th ml) to where the center cubie piece and the core meet. Repeat this step for all 6 points on the core
What that says

Yes, it works on leverage and friction. Applying there is the main it works so well.

Hi, is it possible to lube a 5x5 and a 4x4 with Lubix?
I assume it's the same process?
I saw a video on Youtube:

But it's a V Cube and it looks like he's put in too much lube.
I have an Eastsheen 5x5, where am I supposed to apply the lube for this?

That question has already been answered.
As an update, I have lubed my Eastsheen with Lubix now.
I tried to loosen the tensions, but that just makes is so loose that half the cube fell apart.

I've found that light weight (25-30wt) shock oil works much better for all ESs and for V-5s. But only on looser ones, regular silicon spray is much better for these cubes if they have not been broken in yet.
