i played with them a few days and lubed them just yesterday.

the v7 is excellent now. i can turn the slices with the fingers. i'm very happy now. i recommend lubing the v7
for the v6 there is absolutely no difference for me.i liked it in the beginning. it turns good.

don't lube them too much cause i think there will be greater chances to have a pop

My 7x7x7 came today, and i'm not sure when to lube it, I don't want it to POP, lol. Would be a mess to put back together.

I noticed on my 7x7 that an edge piece is split a little bit (an edge piece is made of 2 half's put together). It seems to be together firmly, but you can see the crack in a couple of edges. Anyone else have this on their 7x7's? It hasn't affected the cube at all though.

Okay, just was making sure it wasn't just me. Worse case scenario is is splits in half and I have to super-glue it back together, so I am not too worried.

Almost every single one of my edge pieces as this split. I don't think it will come apart, and if it does, a little super glue will hold it back together.

Also, a bunch of my center pieces have cracks in them. Looks like this cube was either made that way, or it was because of the horrible shipping.

Anyone know if the screw on the v-cube 7 are adjustable. My center caps on red and black keep flying off and I want to super glue them down. I don't want to superglue it before i know I can adjust the screws.

I needed more than an hour, but I think if I would do it a second time (without making photos and without studying the cube) I would get much faster. It isn't very hard to reassemble, but it takes some time only to sort all the pieces.

By the way, I've found a reassembling video for the V-Cube 6 on youtube. RobH0629 describes the whole assembling very detailed:

Verdes Costumer Service

I just have to tell you this (but new topic would be somehow senseless maybe):
About a month ago my v6 popped again but it was very extreme, pieces were flying through the complete room, landing 3 meters away from me... So I gone to collect the popped parts, but couldn't find the bigger interlocking piece... I pulled all closets of the wall, wiped the room but still I could find it... I was searching it for some hours in total.. expensive toy..
So last week on sunday/monday I wrote to verdes and asked if they could help me out of my disaster because I were pretty depressed.
And monday afternoon I got this answer:
"Dear friend:

Do you need the piece? If so we can send this to you. Let us know.


Thanks
V-CUBE team"

Of course I replied that I still need it and gave them my adress.
Today I recieved a letter from Verdes Innovations, in which they send me 2 bigger interlocking pieces and also 2 smaller ones!

I've got to say, GREAT Service! So if you got problems or still think about if you should buy v-cubes or not, maybe this helps you. :)
