7505Rubik's Studio Speed Cube?
- Nov 5, 2003Hi Ton,
I wish Seven Towns would make a few specific changes:
Why not offer the adjustable screws for a speedcube. That's what we
all want, isn't it? Put a washer under the screw and you don't have
the old problems of sticking and unscrewing.
How about interchangeable tiles? That way they could market many
different kinds of tiles. Regular, translucent, smooth or patterned;
they could do seasonal motifs, etc. People wouldn't be stuck with one
color scheme, and if the tiles are easier to get on and off that would
please those who wish to adjust the screws.
How about choices between some different strength springs? That
might be asking a bit much.
Green should be lighter than blue like on the deluxe. I can solve
the Deluxe in half the light needed to solve the present-day cubes,
either from Seven Town's of Rubik's studio, because the new cube have
blue and green with the same contrast.
Why not go back to that good plastic used in some of the 1980's
cubes, and the Hungarian-made Rubik's studio cube, or the thicker,
slicker plastic used in the Deluxe?
