My friend needs a decent cube for a relative's departure to Brazil.

Looking for any type of speed cube. Needs to be regular, competition size though.

USA only please.

You can contact me faster via email.

Thanks,
-Chris

Um... I don't know if you have a reason for not buying a mass-produced puzzle, so may I present the MF8 Legend? It's on sale at $9, reviews say it's very good, and I've ordered from the store in the past (the shipping is 2 - 3 weeks but free and international. if you want really fast shipping, there is a priority post option, but it's expensive...) and it isn't a fraud in any way.

If you don't trust international stores because of one bad experience, I'm sure there are plenty of people here who can verify HKnowstore's trustworthiness... including the owner.

It does, however, arrive as a baggie of parts with stickers included (not applied). Be warned if you expect a fully assembled cube.

Like I said, I have a friend leaving very soon. I asked for US only so I can get quick shipping. Would have ordered internationally but can't wait for the shipping. I was hoping someone here would have a spare.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have tried my fair share of Dayans, but I have to say by FAR the best speedcube I've used that does not get the attention it deserves as an incredible cube is:

GHOST HAND II

Seriously, this thing is amazing. It is smooth as silk, corner cuts fairly nicely, doesn't pop too often, and above all comes in ANY COLOR YOU WANT!! :shock: And it's totally affordable - haven't seen one that's gone over $6.00 USD. And you CAN get them for as low as $3.00. PM me if you want the URL.

Those are links for the stickered and colored Dayan Zhanchi, respectively.

They are located in California and you will probably get the cube within a day or two. I'm on the east coast and I ordered on a Saturday and received it on a Monday!

I would go for a Zhanchi. They're amazing, especially after they've been lubed.
