is dnm 37 with angstrom dignitas and gravitas good for speeding up my 3x3, while also making it controllable? I like a smooth feeling that isnt gummy, and takes light to moderate effort to turn it. Also it should have a moderate speed, not too fast and not too slow.
Gravitas is gummy, but not in a silicone way

I usually get products from SCS, like their lube, which means I would get Martian lube. Martian is pretty much multi-purpose, and is the best seller on SCS, so I would get that lube. But I have never shopped at the Cubicle, so what lube do you recommend getting at the Cubicle that I can use on pretty much all of my cubes?

Or something like Traxxas 10K/30K/50K or Weight 1/2/3/4/5.

SCS lube is GARBAGE. It's like night and day, comparing TheCubicle lube to SCS. SCS lube feels like water compared to the better lubes at TC. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SCS LUBE
Pretty much all TC lube are good; my personal favorites are Mystic, which is fast and has a very unique soft feel; and weight 5, which is a must have basic silicone lube everyone should have 100% of the time. Silk and Speedy are also great.

Sorry, I did not know that. I will be sure to get the Cubicle lube from now on.

My Cubicle premium favorites in order is: (Not including weight)

1) Lubicle Speedy/DNM-37 (Fast Lube water based)
2) Silk (Smoooth)
3) Compound X (Gummy and heavy)

The rest are not must haves but they are good to have:
4) Mystic (Aloe based)
5) Angstrom Dignitas (Smooth and fast)
6) Lubicle Black (Hardware)
7) Lubicle 1 (Restores the plastic of your cube)

My RS3M 2020 is considerably slower than when I first got it. I have since done ~1000 solves on it. I noticed that I put DNM in it and it helped immediately but now it has a gummy slow sluggish feeling.

Is it possible DNM is just not mixing well with whatever factory lube is leftover in the cube?

this is the case, I had the same problem with another MoYu 3x3.
