if you'd have a trip back to taiwan you GOT TO buy their 紳藍 core&screw+spring set,
they are sold only in taiwan,
and people from the taiwanese forum all said that it's the best core ever

It appears they are the same manufacturers of the various sticker patterns on DX (musical notes, maze, dice, etc). http://maru.tw/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=9&Itemid=30

This poses a question: are they DIYs? I noticed that the cubes don't have corner caps (and maru's DIYs do).

daniel: What about the DIYs? Are they any good?


what do you mean? they sells various diys (type a, c, d, THIS, and the 紳藍DIY)


i heard their type C are good, but definetly buy the 紳藍 DIYs


THIS DIY is the one with the clear core, but they aren't very durable, though the cubies are smooth without a trace of molding lines or imperfection.



BTW maru.tw don't sell it out of country



P.S. THIS is also called taiwanese DIY

I just got my maru mini in the mail today. I'm quite impressed. Its smaller than I thought (half as wide as a regular cube in each direction) but it still turns pretty well. I lubed mine but am still waiting on it to dry. I want to try loosening the screws but I can't find a screwdriver that will fit at the moment.

Well crap, it just broke :(
I was about to say how well it was responding to the lube, when half of the pieces just popped out. One of the center caps fell off, screw and all. It wont screw back in. I see marks all over the plastic now. I think the jig-a-loo softened it too much.

No Jig a Loo for my mini cube, then...

Has anyone tried silicon spray?
