Hi guys! Yesterday when I was playing with my floppy-cube I realized it turned really bad, so I took of the center caps and did some cutting. The turning improved greatly, and I got rid of the bendy center caps! :D

That looked like a great idea. I've been rather worried about mine breaking, as the plastic is really bent on the centers, but if I do this, it'll be fixed :D

That is a genius idea! I might try that with a one of mine.

I did this a few months ago when one of the centers broke off. I glued it back on but it never stayed so I quit using it.
