I searched the forum about square-1..but couldn't find any thread relating of which square-1 is best fit for speed.. really sorry if there is one...

So, I am planning to buy a square-1... but I do not have much info on it, and I want to get the best speed square-1(because don't want to regret again, last time got rubik's 2x2, wasted my money). Any suggestions on which type or brand of square-1 is the best? Thanks for helping~ :rolleyes:

I got two square-1 from c4y: first the cheap one (very bad at first, gets better after lubing but still not really great), then the black one (good).

hmm..is the black square-1 from c4y counted a diy square-1? /because I checked c4y and only the red and green one have a bracket behind writing (diy), but the black and white square-1 do not have the diy word behind..

sorry, just trying to have confirmation before getting one..

I have a DIY from C4Y and an original Irwin that I got fairly cheap on eBay. The DIY is good at cutting corners and the 180 degree slicing turn is good but the layers don't turn too well (this is due to a flaw in the design in my opinion) - still perfectly acceptable. The original Irwin is great, all planes very smooth, cuts corners less well than the DIY though.

all from cube4you are DIY
it's MF8 brand

MF8 plastic is a bit rought right outside the box
but try lube it with CRC or jig-a-loo
it will be smooth and very fast
this happen with the MF8 Megaminx too
