Izo lube = lubicle = lubix = traxxas as in all are mixed from differential oils of different viscosities. There isnt one lube that is better than the rest, which is why I recommend buying the cheapest possible diff oil in atleast 2 different viscosities (10/30K and 50k) so you can mix your own to suit your cubing style. Also diff oil is cheaper and a lot better than CRC Silicone. Anything in a spray can sucks for lubing generally.If you want a really high-end lube, get Lubix.
Other good lubes are Lubicle, Maru, Traxxas, and Izo Lube.
Or you could just get CRC Silicone.
What you are using isnt really great for lubing cubes. Get differential oil. Some lubes wear out very fast (maru lube for example) where are others almost never (differential oil).Guess i might be doing it wrong somehow..
How much should i be spraying on the peices?
Good choice, later when you want you can also buy weight 30k diff oil and mix the two to get any viscosity between 30k and 50k. Remember to lube the core! Watch crazybadcubers youtube tutorial on how to lube a core. Bigger puzzles like 4x4-> need a thinner luber like 30k, but for 3x3 lubing 50k is pretty great. Much better than what you had, you'll see.Ansmann Racing Silicone diff oil (50,000)
PUZL Cube Lube is made of the same substance (Dimethicone) as Lubix or 50k Diff Oil but has a viscosity of 350 (unsure of measurement unit - CST I think) and is therefore considerably runnier. I found it to be pretty good, but have switched to Traaxas 50k as I wanted something a bit thicker. I have considered trying Traaxas in the core and PUZL lube on the pieces or mixing it with the 50k to thin it out some.
Sprays are not the best for zhanchi's but I actually found a mix of CRC and traxxas 50k works pretty well when the zhanchi is really slow (all 4 of my zhanchis except my 42mm zhanchi are really slow when there's only differential oil in them for some reason).which is the best silicone spay for lubricating a zhanchi ?:confused::confused::confused::confused:
