If your case was unique you might be right, but you are far from unique in mild colorblindness. For that reason, even if there were no others, I suspect that stickered cubes are here to stay.As someone who is not fully colorblind, but has trouble distinguishing colors, stickerless cubes are a nightmare to me. Although I do really like the feel and look of a premium stickerless cube, using one in any lighting other than perfect lighting is impossible to me. I rely on color blind shades, I am not being "picky" with my shades. I can understand why people think that stickered cubes will be soon discontinued (I, unfortunately, do too) but I really hope they do not.
If you have a stickerless cube with a split-piece design (e.g. Valk or GTS2), have you tried replacing one of the colours you can't easily distinguish with black pieces from another cube? For example, something like this. Whether this works depends on the exact type of colour blindness you have, but it's still worth trying if you prefer the feel of stickerless cubes and are willing to spend a bit of money to experiment, imo.I rely on color blind shades, I am not being "picky" with my shades.
Hm. Far as I can recall, it seems that it's mainly the budget cubes (… and Yuxin's very big cubes) that use pink instead of red. Maybe non-cubers might prefer that, or maybe pink dye is cheaper.Actual pink.
I see that when I answered the poll I said I preferred stickered cubes. Now the only stickered cubes I use are 2x2 (because I don't care to upgrade), 4x4 (I'd seriously consider switching, but I've got a really good Blue M in black), and feet (because they don't make a stickerless Big Sail, and I'd really like to have black and pink sides on my foot cube). I prefer stickerless big cubes for recognition, especially for centers.I know this forum has a weird obsession with minimizing thread counts but sometimes it's nice to see what people are using in May 2017 instead of what they were using in February 2015...
