Never thought I'd be saying this.

I'm switching to the X-MAN Ambition. I got it, cleaned out the terrible qiyi lube and set it up, and have been breaking it in. Already I'm getting my average times, and it still isn't fully broken in. I expect it to only get better.
Here's a nice Ao5 I got on it:

Wow. I now main 5 Qiyi NxN's.
I got the Valk 3 M, cleaned and tensioned it, then set it up with Silk on the tracks and martian on the pieces. And let me tell you, it is incredible. It's now become my main, and I've been getting some of my best times ever on it. I don't understand why companies can't make cubes like they used to.
