Recently (about a month ago), I modified my wittwo by putting torpedos into it and doing a quick run over of the edges and corners. Everyone I have talked to likes it, and some people wanted it. I have decided to start selling them, and will sell them for 20-25 usd plus shipping. Each cube comes with a set of cubesmith stickers applied (your choice of set) and is pretensioned and lubed with lubix. PM if you have any questions or if you would like to buy one. The vid I put up:

I got my wittwo for 10.89 USD off lightake so 20-25 USD is a lot more than the v-cube even I'm just saying it is quite a bit more money those how do the torpedoes affect the cube?

Note that I have to buy the cube,torpedos,stickers,lube,and I have to work when considering price. The torpedos allow the cube to be looser without internal popping and other problems.

How did you put torpedoes in?
I modified them to fit the gaps

Wouldn't torpedos slow it down? I mean, the wit-two doesn't really pop anyway, so what's the point of using torpedos?
torpedos DO slow it down IF it isn't tensioned properly for them. The point of using torpedos is to allow it to be used at looser tensions without popping, and to make it have better corner cutting, speed, and to make it less crispy.

I'll be there too! Wait, maybe I know you, Ninja Storm...
I'd like to try one out at River Hill as well.
I'll make two. pm me the color and what type stickers. you're not obligated to buy it if you don't like it or don't want one

Pictures? or a video?
Still being edited and processed. I'll post a link when they're done

See, I've had the idea of putting torpedoes in a wittwo. The reason I didn't is because it's an internal piece, so there's not really any point (IMO). Of course, I could be wrong, but I have done it completely and noticed no difference.

Also, if your WitTwo pops, you cube wayyy to rough. I've never had a pop on it (after 4 months), although I have broken the bottom of the corner off twice :p

I have had pops on the WitTwo before as the result of "misalignments". I have multiple times made one or more of the pieces that hold one of the cubies in place that have the hooks on it come out of place and either pop or just get stuck somewhere else.
