The A5 isn't that good right out of the box. It needs a little breaking in, tensioning and lube, not to mention modding the corners by sanding the sharp corner down. After that it's a tight, controllable cube that performs well.

The rubik's studio isn't DIY. That's just a picture. And it costs just like normal cubes. My storebought, studio, and dayan GuHong all cost the same!

I would say that the best tension for a Type C is high. This comes from personal experience as with my Type C, any average tension auses a pop fairly frequentl. (1 in 5 solves)

Thanks for all your work. I'll definitely have to come back to this thread when I'm looking at new 3x3s. By the way, is the AIII-F another name for the new type AIII?
