I've been speedcubing for about a month or two now. Originally I just learned the quick way to solve it and with a lack of time to learn the fast way, kept practicing with it. (Surprisingly I managed a 1:14 on one of those old white opposite blue cubes.)

Anyway, I'm looking for some advice. I got a new cube. Even though it's 2006, it's still got the silver 2005 stickers on it. Is this a good cube for speedcubing? The stickers came off much faster that my old cube, less than a week, and I've ended up printing my own by now considering I don't really care how it looks. It seems much faster than the old one, but I don't think I can do any triggers on it.

Thanks.

Hey Quinn,

now that I have you here even with the right topic: can you please tell me which lubricant (name, brand, ingredients if you know) you used for the Deluxe?

Thanks,
Stefan

Ok, you need a Cube Master's help............. hehehehehe

I have 2 types, and one left the cube more..... doughy(thanks to the dictionary :) ), and the other left the cube very soft, like without contact inside........... it is really great.

both of them lubricate excellently, but in 2 ways.............

What sprays do you use Stephan?

I haven't used sprays for a while, I switched to pure silicone oil. But now I'm looking into sprays again, particularly those that contain petroleum. So I'll try Prestone and CRC silicone spray and WD-40. But it might have to wait two weeks cause I want to study for an exam until then and I don't want to do a half-hearted spray test.

Oh crap, they have many more than these. For example just go to
http://www.crcind.com
click on "United States", then "automotive" and search for "silicone".
