What do you do when you buy a NEW TRU cube?

Post by bonoan1027 on Tue May 13, 2008 7:40 pm

it takes a long time for my new TRU cubes to get loose even after i put lube already. Is there something I'm supposed to do before applying the silicone?

when i still didn't have my DIY, here's what i do after i buy a TRU cube:

1. i apply nail polish at once to preserve the stickers
2. once the stickers are dry (overnight), i sand the inner surfaces my cube using a sand paper or a silica sand. after sanding, i brutally play with the cube for one whole day without lube yet.
3. then, i disassemble the cube, clean it, assemble it, then play with it (3x)
4. once the cube is clean, i apply lube.

actually, for the past few days, i've been using a really old TRU cube, it's really good when i practice slow solves. plus, it NEVER pops. since it's old, it doesn't have any more lock ups and it cuts as good as diy's.

i prefer the cube not to be sanded... it gives a weird feeling and didnt seem to help my old japan rubik's cube at all...

i wished i hadn't sandpaper-ed it Sad

i think it depends on the cube. i don't sand my diy. but i sand my tru cube coz it really needs it.

TRU cube need to be sanded... sand paper or literally... the sand...

pero mga TRU cubes na lumalabas ngayon is almost for speed cubing... it really is smooth... but not all... luckily for me... i bought one that not needed any sand... just break-in for about an hour... then clean the cube... then apply some lube... VIOLA... it is for speedcubing... but the cutting corners is not that effective... but if you use it as a main cube... baka after a week or two... okay na for cutting corners...

BTW... i'm talking about a SHRINK WRAPPED TRU CUBE... P219.00...

thanks a lot... heheheheheheh... Very Happy:D:D:
