Two cubes you never see in a subject line.

I bought the Black, White, Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, - Type (B) from 9spuzzles

I also bought a Mefferts DIY 3x3


I'm breaking in the black Type B at the moment and will follow up with an opinion later - not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Like a rubik's DIY with harder plastic -- retro

it's a basically a famwealth cube. it has plastic tenons holding the cube together instead of screw and springs. it sucks, and gets even worse over time.

oh no not famwealth. I have one of these, and its the only 3x3 I've seen that has alignment issues even when its like millimeters off. If i hadn't received a bunch of ES cubes with it I would've been peeved.
I hope you don't mean millimeters... 3 millimeters is a big misalignment for a cube.

I find that famwealth cubies+type A core is a pretty good cube.

I have a cube a lot like that Meffert's one. I got it at a second hand toy store in Tokyo. Each cubie face has a cartoon character face and it came with a key to pop a center cap off and you push on the core to disassemble it.
No springs and a transparent core. Turns really FAST but can't cut corners at all.
