Type C DIY Kit – DIY 3x3x3 Brain Teaser Magic IQ Cube Complete Kit (Black) Reviews

Pros:
The puzzle is very inexpensive because of the free shipping. It is an excellent DIY cube. It's a Type C, which is basically the same as the DIY kits sold on the original brand's website. The puzzle turns very nicely, and is durable. If you adjust it right, it won't pop. The center caps also stay on, unlike the original brand DIY kits, so that's nice. The cube turns smoothly, and responds well to silicone lubricant. It also came with two sets of stickers in case you need to replace any, or you can just sticker another cube.
Cons:
The center caps are a bit difficult to put on. If you aren't strong enough to force them in, you can just use a hammer and smack them on -- it works quite well. The stickers are a bit duller than the original brand stickers, but you can get used to it. Or you can just buy new stickers.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a great DIY cube, and I've used it in competition. For it's price, it's well worth it, especially because of free shipping.
