What's In The Box?
- Cubicle Labs Silk
The lube is exactly as described, adds a little speed and cushions the cube and makes it feel very nice while solving, I'm sure that if you like the cube a but slower the lube is perfect for you. I really like the needle ending of the lube, it allows for precise lubrication, and if you need to reach the inside a bit more to slow it down even more it makes it very easy. Two drops for me are prefect. The delivery and the support of the stuff is great and helpful, I am sure I will order again when I need some more lube.
The Lube makes my cube very heavy feeling but the turning texture is very smooth and if you put in like 2-3 drops on the top and bottom( might of over lubed it) it gives my cube a very plush soft feel, it’s does come with a disadvantage of sacrificing speed but it’s worth it, I recommend putting in DNM-37 with it to speed up the cube.
I like this lube, since it slows down cubes slightly, however provides a soft, plush feeling that is only matched by mystic. However this lube has a different plush feeling that provides resistance when turning, and I believe that people who enjoy controllable, gummy cubes will like this lube a lot. 1-3 drops should be enough for a decent length of time (a month or 2). I don’t like how the bottles leak everywhere during shipping, however. The lube gets everywhere if you don’t store it upright, similar to dignitas. The bottle cap also is incredibly hard to open, even though I know how to open the bottle properly. It wouldn’t come off. The needle tip is good though, but it doesn’t come out in drops unless you barely squeeze it. Be careful when applying, as it may come out in a stream.
First I'm a novice, so I will probably need more time to figure out how much to use and where exactly to put it. But from what I have used it on, a Dayan 5 Zhanchi, that has never seen a drop in 6 years, well, it certainly made it turn better. But for the moment, it seems to have done the job. The real test will be for my Gan 356 XS, once it needs lubricating and I clean it up from the factory lube.
Makes your cubes more controllable, and a lot smoother. Makes it quieter too. I recommend to people not really looking particularly to slow down/speed up their cubes, as a good base. It can be used to slow cubes down if you use a lot, though.
3cc doesn’t sound like a lot, but if you use it in proper amounts, when it’s needed, and only across a few cubes, it will last a good while - several months maybe.
Some manufacturers use thinner-walled boxes for their packaging - For example, The GAN Mirror M and GAN Pyraminx use thin card-like packaging, which may appear damaged upon arrival. We use eco mailing-bags with recyclable hive-wrap for protection during shipping from us, to you.
