Hey all. All I have right now for lube is some weight 5 and a sample bottle of lubicle speedy from the cubicle. I want to get a new lube with my next order. I have all WCA puzzles except 5x5 up and clock. I want something that would work well for all or most of the puzzles. I know this is pretty general, but any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks

Silk would probably be your best bet. Honestly though, getting a Traxxas lube set is all you need.

You might want to buy some DNM-37 as that lasts longer than speedy and is faster than it though silk and a traxxas set will do you fine, like what @Eli Theperson said

So I’m just an older guy who enjoys cubing, but I don’t practice much or have a desire to get really fast, so I’ve always just used the cubes straight out of the box. I was always afraid to tension or lube them. I finally did, and I know it won’t really make me faster, but I will say it’s more enjoyable to solve like this. Now I have to learn how to lube my 4x4. My only question is when the lube eventually dries out, do you have to do anything special to clean it out before you lube it again?

If you use your cube a lot you may have to disassemble the cube if gunk builds up. But that is a good opportunity to see the mechanism I guess.
Bigger cubes need faster lubes but a thinner lube like traxxas 10k or silk should work fine (mystic you may need to clean out idk)

Guys, I have a RS3M and its corner twists a lot. Also, it happens to lockup a lot.
Which lube to choose?
The lubes that I can choose from are the gan lubes (old and recent), the moyu v1, v2, v3, maru lube, and the x-man tornado lube. (I can choose 2)
Thanks

Mastery lube slows your cube down, accell lube speeds it up, and maintenance lube makes it smooth. Honestly you should get any lube that isn't too expensive.(anything over 3 dollars). the description of a lube product will tell you what it does and where to put it.

The weight 5 should act to slow the cube down a little, and the lunar will speed it up, so using them together should allow you to modify the speed of the cube to a certain degree. The weight 5 should last longer than the lunar as well, keep that in mind.

Idk if we're still using this thread but I'm trying to decide if I should get DNM-37, Silk, or Mystic.

I have an RS3M 2020 and I want a smooth and quick feel. I'm also getting a pyraminx and a 5x5 and would like it if the lube works well in them too.
