I tried shock oil on my cube and found that it had some kind of force against the movement. That kinda slowed it down quite a bit turning wise. And what I used was what most people recommend,300 which converts to about 25wt-30wt according to their system.
Maybe it might work well in a cube like the Guhong. Yet to try since I'm gett ing the Maru lube soon.

I realize you are talking about the megaminx. I asked you a specific question for a reason. Telling me what your favorite 3x3 lets us know what type of feel you like. Since I don't know a LL 3x3 (didn't even know they made those actually), what is your next favorite 3x3 to use?
Oh okay well in that case a QJ.

I haven't used a QJ so I still don't know what it feels like. F series (Fi, FII, GhostHand I, GhostHand II) cubes, or A series cubes (A1, A3, A5, Haiyan, etc)?

I'm def a CRC guy, but that just comes down to how you want the cube to feel. CRC will make your cube fast, but not smooth like shock oil. it depends on the feel you're going for.
