What's better, angstrom, cubicle labs, mystic, cubicle pro shop, supernova, or cosmic?


is it worth it getting a premium setup?

Pick one of the four options for premium setup and one for whether its worth it

If you're a lazy person that wants to buy a ready to solve high end puzzle out of the box and are willing to pay big stacks for it i don't see why you shouldnt buy premium cubes. Realistically you can just buy the lubes yourself and do all the work, it really doesn't take that much time. I would only suggest to buy big premium cubes because those are the real ones which are worth it imo.

If you’re spending your own money and that’s what floats your boat, go for it. Personally I kind of enjoy setting up cubes.

Same here. Although @Lapse has a point: no one wants to take a big cube apart because they are so big.

I don’t do it often, and rarely if ever do it just because, but I don’t mind disassembling and reassembling big cubes. Heck: it’s a puzzle. Why only solve it one way? On second thought I think I can remember disassembling two 4x4s and one 6x6 at different times a couple years ago just to see how fast I could reassemble them. I don’t remember the times I got.

The 4x4 is the only cube i would consider to buy pre-lubed, as reassembling the cube, is like running a marathon. Y'all can disagree, but last time I reassembled my cube I took 5 hours. Nonstop.

I’m semi-seriously considering getting all 4 budget 8x8s, magnetizing them, mixing all 1,276 pieces (is my math right there? That seems low.) in a large mixing bowl, and making a video of myself reassembling them. Just for fun.

You do you. I wouldn't be that crazy but ok, I'd watch the video.
