also i have a question should i get the 3cc DNM-37 or higher? Im not sure which one is the optimal amount to get
the choiced are 3cc, 10cc, and 15cc.
The DNM is here: https://www.thecubicle.com/products/dnm-37?_pos=1&_sid=88901c3f8&_ss=r&variant=15136648659017
how many puzzles do you have? when I started I had only a few cubes so I got the 3cc bottle but I like to put DNM in everything so later on as I got more puzzles I ran out. so I recommend the 10cc or 15cc. It's a better deal.

I have gan magic, and it is quite smooth. However, i would not recommend any of these. Get some cubicle lube lol
What cubicle lube do you recomend?
Cause if it's too expensive/premium lube I can't buy it here in Indonesia, there is too much tax.

But in my rubik local shop there is:
  • Maru lube
  • Qiyi v1 & v2 lube
  • Gan standard lube
  • Gan magic lube
  • Dayan lube
  • Moyu v1 & v2 lube
  • And custom made lube 100% silicon (by the local cuber too).
For now I still use my old 100% silicon lube/shock oil, for my very old moyu weilong & moyu rs3m 2020.

Thanks

none of those are that good I think (well at least top solvers don't use them). maru is especially notorious for drying out quickly. It'll speed up your puzzles but after a few solves it'll go back to being slow. I use traxxas 50k for core and for fast or scratchy puzzles, DNM or silk for pieces to setup any cube into a reasonable state. If you only can pick one lube, get DNM as it will speed up any puzzle and that is what all the lubes you listed do. (For scratchy and completely dry puzzles I like to use traxxas to smooth out the feel a lot. My only completely dry puzzles I've had were old ones.)

I know SCS (and TC maybe) sells scented lube, but I like the smell of silicone sprays and DNM / Maru. Is that weird? Also the smell of gasoline and elevators too. Lube and oil and mechanical things are fun to play with.

excuse me are you composed of a complex engine based on the principles of internal combustion? didn't think so
i mean we are a biological engine afterall. We eat to survive, just like cars need gasoline to survive too. Our engine are the insides of our body, like an engine is under the hood of a car.

but anyway lets not get off topic lol

If I lube the core to get rid of spring noise how long does the effect last? Also should I use a small amount or a generous amount?
