I heard somewhere that the Loud Lubes from CubingOutLoud are just repackaged lubes. Is this statement truthful? If so, what lubes are they?

oh ok. Ill assume they are and just order cosmic lubes instead of loud lubes
Loud lubes are not just cosmic lubes. I am 95% sure they are unique, and even if they are repackaged cosmic lubes, they are actually cheaper than cosmic lubes. I am planning to make a YouTube video about them, and all the other lubes I have.

So I need help deciding DNM-37 or XTM lube from the cubicle. I can't get both, so I need to choose 1 or the other. I heard that DNM-37 makes it fast, while XTM makes it smoother, so if you get both, you get a fast and smooth cube, but I can only choose 1. So which one?

My Valk 4 and Xman Shadow are feeling very sluggish. Should I lube the cores of the with lubicle black? I thought I heard that lubicle black doesn't work on even layered puzzles? Is this true? Or should I put some in the cores of those cubes?

So I found out that cubicle labs silk still exists. Yay. So now I need help choosing between DNM-37 and Cubicle Labs Silk.

What are you looking to do with the DNM or Silk? Do you own a heavy lube like weight 5 or 6? If so, get a DNM. It helps even out the cube with smoothness and speed. If you don’t own and heavy lubes, the silk is okay.

I'm wondering what the 'best' lubricant that can/should be used to speed up the MFJS 8x8 cube. I initially bought one in the past year (or maybe it's been over a year already), and put a few drops of Compound V on it, and that made the cube turn worse... So then I tried to put some DNM and Silk and that didn't help (maybe made it even worse because I may have overlubed the cube). So at some point, I decided to take the cube apart and wash the cube (big mistake... took me like 8 hours to put it back together, but that's a different story). After putting it back, the turning still sucked so I added some DNM and it actually made it worse... So now the outer layers on that cube is crap... (I'm blaming Compound V, which basically drove )

So I just ordered a new MFJS 8x8 and it arrived yesterday. Before I do anything with this one, I wanted to ask the community on how to go about speeding up this cube (I think this is factory lubed as well, but it sucks...) and what the 'best' lubricant here would be for this specific cube..

The MFJS 9x9-12x12 all turn quite a bit better than the 8x8, so I don't know why it's only the 8x8 that turns like crap...

I would appreciate any help here, thank you so much for your help!

the mf8 was made before the other cubes, so there might be hardware improvements on the 9x9 and up that make them turn better. i have an mf8, and it turns noticably slower than my 9x9.

I see... well that'd explain the slow MF8.. My MF9 (and 10, 11, 12) are all faster than the MF8 (especially the 10 and 11)..
Are you able to speed your MF8 at all? If so, how did you do it?

i haven't done much to it. i find that speed isn't much of an issue for me, because when i turn fast the cube pops, so i'm fine with it being slow.
