In... Beginner's Central? It's already sticky in hardware. I'm grateful for your support of course.I vote this thread to be promoted to a sticky thread. All in favor, say, 'I.'
Alright! Thanks for clarifying.I would like to address the Type I A concern you mentioned with our video. I think that while Roc says it has no "cutting ability," what he really meant is that for his style it has a higher chance to lock up, I will try to get in there an make an annotation. In our desperation to get a cube review out there we produced what exists currently and there are several instances like this that need to be annotated.
So... durability of the Type F has been an issue for you too?Also I think that based on your Type F assessments that "durability" might be a trait that should be scored. I am a Type F user and to me it's attributes are worth having two or three on hand as backup even though your criticism is valid. Not to mention the only color that I've been completely satisfied with is blue.
It would be nice to know what you think about these two hybrids:FYI I have a few type B's and Type II A's in customs now so we will be producing a new video addressing those types soon.
Awww WTF. Damn it all to hell.Also Tribox indicates that Joy cubes seem to be discontinued, Can anyone confirm this or perhaps it's a bad translation. If confirmed then I think we're going to have to scratch it from our review unless someone can get us one.
Well, it's one of the number one questions that beginners ask. Most noobs need to have everything right in front of them.
Not exactly in the sense that you describe, but to be fair a man can only cube so much and I have thirty plus cubes... Therefore I've not cubed for months on end with any of my F's other than my primary blue TYPE F. With that particular one I did experience a drop off in performance, but after more than a normal amount of adjusting tension and subseqently lubing with Jig A Loo it's back to its peak performance. I should state that up to this point it had only been lubed with whatever lube cube4you uses with it's lube and assemble service which I think is similar to the Rubiks.com and Puzzle Pros injectable silicone.So... durability of the Type F has been an issue for you too?
Do you have the original JSK? If so, how does the clone compare to the original?Here's my review of the JSK Clone:
Resistance to pops: 9.75
Resistance to lock ups: 8
Ability to cut corners: 8.5
Average score: 8.8
Overall score: A-
Weight: Heavy (a bit lighter than the Type A I)
Need to break in: Nope. Responds very well to lube.
Feel: Fast, crispy, around the same resistance as a Rubik's DIY at low tension, but this feels more controlled and does not pop at all.
Comments: Highly recommended if you can get your hands on one. However, there have been complaints of the screws loosening themselves, similar to the problem that the new Type Ds have. I, personally, have experienced this problem, but I've had this for a few months, and the screws are fine after a bit of tightening. If this ever dies out on me like it did to Eric Limeback, I'll let you know. Besides that, it's an excellent cube that will never pop on you. The tension does not need adjusting; the default tension is good, like Dianshengs and Type Ds.
This makes sense to me and seems likely. I will edit the guide. Thanks for the input.I have to disagree with you on the Edision Cubes just a little bit. There is definitely a break in period with those cubes. This is my main cube for a few months now and it takes time for it to reach it's best. The texture wears down a bit after good use and the speed also increases. It is really recommended to wipe it down or clean it after a month or so, and then relube it.
Otherwise Awesome Job on the reviews.
I might add an extra section with reviews not by me. I'll take the section down if people start mass producing reviews that disagree with each other; but I really don't think that will happen.Read my edit - I don't have an actual JSK . However, Harris has one, and I'll be meeting him on Saturday at TOS (Toronto Open Summer), so I'll compare the two cubes there. I'll update my review to reflect the resemblance to the original JSK after that.
