As long as you are using a somewhat modern cube, hardware won't get you faster.... Warning to all newer cubers: you don't have to buy every single new cube on the market because it won't make you faster....
People say this all the time about every hobby: fountain pens, guitars, art supplies etc. but at the end of the day some people do just like to collect cubes
sorry for not being clear, I changed the title and the other thingIt's less about collecting, the statement that hardware doesn't matter is just plain wrong.
yeah what I'm trying to say is switching from a 354 to a gan x is just wasting $60 XDIt has happened multiple times to me that I changed from a modern cube to another modern cube and it instantly made me faster.
I think you have a good intention in what you write, but hardware can definitely make a notable difference.
I agree. I switched from a Cosmic YLM M and even though the actual difference between the cubes wasn’t that noticeable, I still found it justified because I could afford it and I liked the feel better.Maybe it won't help you improve, but if you enjoy the X more and you feel that it justifies the price tag, then I don't see a problem.
